Trump Reportedly Set to Fire National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster

HeadlineMar 16, 2018

The White House is denying media reports that President Trump is poised to fire National Security Adviser Lieutenant General H.R. McMaster ahead of a planned U.S.-North Korea summit in May. Trump is reportedly considering replacing McMaster with John Bolton, who was named by President George W. Bush in 2005 to be the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations in a recess appointment, after Bush feared he would not be confirmed by the Senate. Bolton is a foreign policy hawk who has suggested the U.S. military should directly engage Iran and North Korea. He once said if the U.N. headquarters in New York lost 10 stories, “it wouldn’t make a bit of difference.” The position of national security adviser does not require Senate confirmation.
