Trump decided a new major resignation
President of the United States Donald Trump is ready to fire his national security adviser, Herbert McMaster. This sources in the White House told The Washington Post, reports Reuters.
According to the newspaper, the American leader has already made a decision, but the adviser will not leave his post immediately. Trump plans to wait a while, "not to demean McMaster and thoroughly approach the choice of a candidate for his replacement." It is reported that the president was dissatisfied with the "too tough approach of the general and his long, unrelated briefings."
According to several sources familiar with the plans of the president, the former US representative to the UN John Bolton and Keith Kellogg, the responsible secretary of the National Security Council, are considered to be the new adviser.
At the same time, the White House spokesman wrote on Twitter that "Trump and General McMaster have good working relations and no changes in the National Security Council of the country".
On March 13, Trump resigned the head of the State Department, Rex Tillerson. Instead, he suggested appointing CIA head Mike Pompeo. Until his candidature is approved by Congress, Secretary of State John Sullivan will act as Secretary of State.
Herbert McMaster became an adviser to the country's president for national security in February 2017, displacing Michael Flyn. The latter resigned after publishing in the newspaper The Washington Post, which gave details of his conversation with Russia's ambassador to the US Sergei Kislyak. The newspaper, in particular, wrote that the conversation was about anti-Russian sanctions.
