The Shakeup in President Trump’s National Security Council Had One More Shoe Drop

The shakeup in President Trump’s National Security Council had one more shoe drop. This time it was K.T. McFarland who was assistant to General Flynn. Flynn, you remember, got canned for some Russian contact questions. The new National Security Adviser, H.R. McMaster, will get to chose his own assistant. K.T will move on to Singapore where she will be our ambassador. 

As Written By Ryan Pickrell for the Daily Caller:

K.T. McFarland has been asked to step down from her position as National Security Adviser to President Donald Trump in another White House shake-up.

She will serve two more weeks before taking on a new role as the U.S. ambassador to Singapore, Bloomberg Politics reports. The shift will allow National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, who took over after Gen. Michael Flynn resigned, to choose his own second in command. McFarland was hired by Flynn.

Trump gave McMaster, a lieutenant general in the U.S. Army, the authority to restructure the National Security Council to suit his particular needs. Reports circulating in February suggested that McFarland might leave her post in the wake of the NSC’s change in leadership; however, she told The Hill that she would stay on. “I just met with the president and he asked that I stay on. I’m thrilled to do so,” McFarland told reporters.

The call for McFarland, a 65-year-old former national security analyst for Fox News, to step down follows a decision this past week to remove the president’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon, from the key NSC…..
