Vice Admiral Robert Harward Has Declined President Trump’s Offer To Be The New National Security Adviser



CBS: Vice Admiral Robert Harward turns down national security adviser job

Vice Admiral Robert Harward has rejected President Trump’s offer to be the new national security adviser, CBS News’ Major Garrett reports.

Sources close to the situation told Garrett Harward and the administration had a dispute over staffing the security council.

Two sources close to the situation confirm Harward demanded his own team, and the White House resisted.

Specifically, Mr. Trump told Deputy National Security Adviser K. T. McFarland that she could retain her post, even after the ouster of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Harward refused to keep McFarland as his deputy, and after a day of negotiations over this and other staffing matters, Harward declined to serve as Flynn’s replacement.

WNU Editor: Apparently the sticking point was K. T. McFarland .... Adm. Harward wanted her gone, but President Trump wanted her there.
