McMaster Opposes Trump's Every Move on Foreign Policy

Susan Rice keeps top-secret security clearance, H.R. McMaster letter says - Circa

"General McMaster and I are working very well together", Trump said in a statement emailed to the New York Times.

"I think it's impossible to overstate the danger associated with this", McMaster told MSNBC's Hugh Hewitt in an interview that aired Saturday.

Trump can't decide on a new strategy because he wants to win but also doesn't want to spend more money. "I was upset while I was there in seeing how empowered Obama holdovers under McMaster were to essentially perpetuate Obama-era policies", another former official told TheDCNF.

McMaster has also openly argued with senior strategist Steve Bannon, a former executive of Breitbart, over policy in Afghanistan, a debate which has seized the NSC for months. Then again, no one who isn't related to the president is ever safe in this White House, and it seems clear that Trump remains antsy about McMaster, but that, for now at least, he is more fond of McMaster than he is of feeling forced to fire him.

General McMaster, an Army lieutenant general, came under attack after the recent firing of White House intelligence adviser Ezra Cohen-Watnick, a protege of Mr Trump's first national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

Circa revealed in March that during President Obama's tenure, top aides - including Rice, former CIA Director John Brennan and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch - routinely reviewed intelligence reports received from the National Security Agency's incidental intercepts of Americans overseas.

United States president Donald Trump's national security adviser HR McMaster has stressed that it is "impossible to overstate the danger" posed by North Korea.

Despite those differences, McMaster organized and attended a farewell reception for Harvey this week and voiced support for his pursuit of a new job in the Trump administration.

Director of the Middle East. The official characterized the letters as a pro-forma move that allows the former advisers to participate in administration discussions about national security matters that originated under their tenure.

Gen. H.R. McMaster listens as U.S. President Donald Trump makes the announcement at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida.

"H.R.is indispensable in helping the president hear all those viewpoints and have the information he needs", said the senator, who is close to McMaster.

It was revealed on Wednesday in news reports that Rich Higgins, who served as director for strategic planning at the NSC, was sacked July 21. The Times reported Wednesday that Trump is considering replacing McMaster with CIA Director Mike Pompeo - and sending McMaster to Afghanistan. Cohen-Watnick was involved in providing documents related to the incidental surveillance of members of Trump's transition team to House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes in March.

The White House has not responded to requests for comment.
