Trump Deputy National Security Advisor K.T. McFarland Removed From NSC in Another Reshuffling

Following another reshuffling, K.T. McFarland was reassigned to be Singapore envoy.

One of POTUS Trump’s top national security advisers, K. T. McFarland, is being reassigned to a new role, Fox reports.

McFarland was originally part of Trump’s White House as a deputy to Michael Flynn, Trump’s first National Security Adviser. The McFarland removal and change of role was confirmed Sunday by an anonymous senior administration official. Official statement is pending as the post requires Senate confirmation.

Fox report:

 

A top national security adviser to President Donald Trump is the latest official heading out in an ongoing shuffle within the National Security Council.

Another White House official, Dina Powell, was recently named deputy national security adviser for strategy and has been present in the recent high level meetings with delegations from Egypt, Jordan and China.

McFarland worked as a Fox News analyst before joining Trump’s national security team. She previously worked for three Republican presidents — Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan.

Speculation has already arisen regarding who is next in line to take McFarland’s place.
