Trump picks McMaster as national security adviser

Donald Trump1 has picked HR McMaster to be his national security adviser, replacing Michael Flynn, who was ousted only 24 days into the job. Lieutenant General McMaster2, a serving general, is a highly regarded military veteran with experience in Afghanistan and Iraq, where he served as senior adviser to General David Petraeus during the Iraq war. After announcing the appointment from his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, the president hailed Lt Gen McMaster as a man of tremendous talent and tremendous experience , adding, he is highly respected by everyone in the military and we re very honoured to have him.

The appointment of Lt Gen McMaster caps the end of a tumultuous week in the White House after the sudden removal of Mr Flynn3 amid questions over the former general s ties to Russia and his misrepresentation of phone calls he had with the Russian ambassador before the administration had taken office. Mr Trump s first choice to replace Mr Flynn, Robert Harward4, a retired admiral, turned down the job over concerns he would not be able to hire his own staff. Comment

This appointment could be a turning point in US foreign policy, writes Gideon Rachman

Wednesday, 22 February, 2017

Mr Trump said Keith Kellogg, who had been his acting national adviser, would stay on at the National Security Council as chief of staff . Mr Kellogg had been in the running for the security adviser position, together with John Bolton, the former US ambassador to the UN under George W Bush. On Monday Mr Trump said Mr Bolton, although not taking on the top role at the NSC, would still be working with the White House, albeit in a somewhat different capacity . Speaking from Mar-a-Largo, where he had joined Mr Trump for the official announcement of his appointment on Monday, Lt Gen McMaster said he looked forward to joining the national security team and doing everything that I can to advance and protect the interests of the American people . In 2014, Lt Gen McMaster was chosen by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world and described as a pre-eminent warrior-thinker and the architect of the future US army . He also was praised for his 1997 book Dereliction of Duty, which explored the failings of US military leaders during the Vietnam war. Lt Gen McMaster, 54, is one of several generals serving in Mr Trump s cabinet .

James Mattis, Mr Trump s defence secretary, is the former commander of US Central Command, while John Kelly, Mr Trump s director of homeland security, is a retired four-star Marine corps general. It was not immediately clear whether Mr Flynn s deputies at the NSC would be staying on or whether Lt Gen McMaster would be allowed to hire his own staff, a point of contention for some candidates under consideration for the role. John McCain, the Republican senator and chair of the Senate s armed services committee, praised Lt Gen McMaster s appointment . Lt Gen HR McMaster is an outstanding choice for national security adviser, he said . I have had the honour of knowing him for many years, and he is a man of genuine intellect, character and ability.
