National Security Council spokesman Michael Anton said Sunday that he plans to leave the White House — a move that will leave President Donald Trump without one of the earliest and sharpest defenders of his “America First” foreign policy.
Though Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, brought Anton into the administration, he spent the majority of his tenure serving as spokesman for Flynn’s replacement, H.R. McMaster.Anton said he plans join Hillsdale College’s Kirby Center, the conservative school’s Washington, D.C. outpost, as a writer and lecturer. “I will be forever grateful to President Trump for the opportunity to serve my country and implement his agenda,” he said.
Michael Anton was one of Trump’s first and fiercest defenders.
Anton wrote anonymously under this pseudonym, Publius Decius Mus, and we were all fascinated by his pro Trump essays. The RINOs and the lefties hate him. He is a staunch Trump defender, not an Obama holdover and he is way intelligent.
When Trump won he identified himself and Trump hired him.
It appears John Bolton is ready to start fresh with a new spokesman.
