White House Preparing To Oust McMaster As National Security Adviser

"But we're continuing to closely watch that", Mrs. Sanders said on Fox News. He was on the National Security Council from 2001 to 2003 during the administration of former President George W. Bush.

She was later reportedly considered for the positions of U.S. trade representative and the director of national intelligence in Trump's cabinet.

She continued that accusations that the White House is in chaos are misguided.

They say McMaster may leave as soon as the end of this month, due to strained relations with President Donald Trump over the past months.

Compounding the report, CNN's Jim Sciutto said that McMaster has been discussing a potential position with the Stanford Hoover Institution. But another source emphasized that "no deal or arrangement has been finalized". "President Trump said that the NBC News story is 'fake news, ' and told McMaster that he is doing a great job", Anton told reporters on Thursday.

The report described the move as "orchestrated by chief of staff John Kelly and Defense Secretary James Mattis".

However, sources tell Garrett that the tension regarding McMaster is real, and that an exit strategy may now be in the works. "There are no personnel announcements at this time", Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said in a statement Thursday evening.

Kelly was exasperated by the NBC report and is unaware of any McMaster move in the near term, particularly because Kelly was only asking about possibilities for McMaster with no set timeline, the White House official said.

Days later Press Secretary Sarah Sanders insisted that McMaster was still in the president's good graces.

McMaster irked the president in February after saying at the Munich Security Conference that indictments emerging from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation were "incontrovertible" proof that Russians meddled in the 2016 USA elections. Trump's first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, resigned amid controversy over his contact with Russian officials within a month of taking the job.
