REPORT: White House Considering Replacing H.R. McMaster as Early as Next Month **Updated**

According to a new report by NBC, the White House is preparing to replace National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster as early as next month.

NBC reports:

The White House is preparing to replace H.R. McMaster as national security adviser as early as next month in a move orchestrated by chief of staff John Kelly and Defense Secretary James Mattis, according to five people familiar with the discussions.

The move would be the latest in a long string of staff shakeups at the White House over the past year and comes after months of strained relations between the president and McMaster.

A leading candidate to become President Donald Trump’s third national security adviser is the auto industry executive Stephen Biegun, according to the officials.

Biegun, who currently serves as vice president of international governmental affairs for the Ford Motor Company, is no stranger to the White House. He served on the National Security Council staff from 2001 to 2003, including as a senior staffer for then-national security adviser Condoleezza Rice.

Rice introduced Biegun to Mattis, recommending him for a position in the administration, according to a close associate of Rice. After Mattis met with Biegun at a think tank event he was convinced Biegun would be a good fit for the national security adviser role, the associate said

H.R. McMaster has been heavily criticized by Trump supporters for his soft stance on Islamic terrorism.

McMaster replaced General Flynn as NatSec Advisor after Flynn was fired in early 2017.

As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, H.R. McMaster was purging anyone who mentions Obama holdovers or criticizes Islam. McMaster refuses to use the term ‘Islamic terrorism’ and believes jihadists are perverting Islam.

We should be happy McMaster is being replaced only if another globalist doesn’t take his spot.

Some of the reaction from Trump supporters:

Update: President Trump says the NBC story about H.R. McMaster being replaced is ‘fake news’.
