President Trump’s newest nominee to serve as national security adviser, retired Vice Admiral Robert Harward, turned down the position on Thursday, reportedly telling a friend the offer amounted to a "s*** sandwich." CNN reports Harward used the expletive to describe a White House in chaos after President Trump fired his previous national security adviser, Michael Flynn, on Monday. Harward said in an official statement he turned down the job to address "financial and family issues."
