According to rumors, a personnel change could be coming to the West Wing. Gen. H.R. McMaster, the White House national security adviser, has grown out of favor with President Donald Trump, Bloomberg’s Eli Lake reported on Monday.
Lake, who has proved to have a source or two within the Trump administration, reported that Trump has openly clashed with McMaster in front of staff, complaining that he has been “undermining” his policy. The president was livid, according to three White House officials who spoke with Lake, upon discovering through a Wall Street Journal story that McMaster had contradicted his threat of making South Korea pay for its missile defense system.
In meetings, McMaster apparently ignores the president whenever possible. Lake reported that the national security adviser does not give Trump a chance to ask questions during briefings, instead opting to lecture the rookie president on security issues.
The president, of course, is refuting Lake’s story.
“I couldn’t be happier with H.R. He’s doing a terrific job,” an issue from Trump said.
