Speaking to reporters at Mar-a-lago in Florida on Monday afternoon, President Donald Trump said he’ll name Lt. Gen. H.R McMaster as national security adviser.
Acting national security adviser Keith Kellogg will be chief of staff for the National Security Council, according to the White House pool report.
Trump called McMaster “a man of tremendous talent and tremendous experience.”
Former national security adviser Michael Flynn resigned last week amid revelations that he discussed U.S. sanctions with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the month before Trump took office. The former national security adviser admitted that he briefed Vice President Mike Pence and other White House officials with “incomplete information,” which they then shared in cable news interviews.
