Trump counters criticism of his national security adviser
Aug 06, 2017, 00:51
Following yet another week of drama surrounding high-profile staff shake-ups, the White House is now fending off an intraparty barrage of attacks against Trump's top national security adviser, H.R. McMaster. Politico recently reported Kelly told McMaster he hoped he would stay on at the White House and encouraged him to move forward with any staffing changes he saw fit.
In order to calm tensions, McMaster assured some aides on Thursday that their positions are safe.
Additionally, retired Army Col. Derek Harvey was also removed from his post on the security council last week. Another conservative outlet, The Daily Caller, declared that "Everything the President Wants to Do, McMaster Opposes".
U.S. President Donald Trump's doubts about the war in Afghanistan has led to a delay in completing a new U.S. strategy in South Asia, skepticism that included a suggestion that the U.S. military commander in the region be fired, U.S. officials said on Wednesday. Trump seemed to directly respond to one article which claimed McMaster was "deeply hostile" to Israel. Far-right websites, namely Breitbart (formerly edited by Bannon), quoted two senior White House officials as saying that McMaster holds strong anti-Israel views and views it as an "illegitimate entity" and "occupying power".
"We aren't winning", he told them, according to the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity. Trump wants to deal with the Islam issue - McMaster doesn't. Both men, for instance, agreed that the Trump administration should certify that Tehran is complying with the Iran nuclear deal - a pivotal decision that Trump resisted last month despite concerns that not issuing the certification would infuriate United States allies and forfeit all current restrictions on Iran's nuclear program.
McMaster also reportedly backs the U.S.'s continued support of the Iran nuclear deal while Bannon and White House deputy assistant Sebastian Gorka are vocal opponents of the 2015 agreement. "He's one of the few people who can articulate Trump's vision effectively", an official told the website. McMaster had long sought to dismiss Cohen-Watnick, who clashed with some other members of the council, but was prevented after interventions by Trump's chief White House strategist, Steve Bannon.
