McMaster could leave White House

Will Trump Ship HR McMaster Back to Afghanistan?

Tensions between Trump and McMaster have been playing out for months and were on full display this weekend after Trump publicly chided him over remarks he made regarding Russian interference in the election.

The idea has gotten mixed reviews from politicians, military officials, pundits and local District of Columbia officials since The Washington Post reported several weeks ago that Trump wanted the Pentagon to start planning for the parade.

Rumors of bad blood between Trump and McMaster have plagued the national security adviser's tenure from the beginning, when he took over from Mike Flynn-the president's first pick for the job, whom he reportedly regrets having fired.

After U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller charged 13 Russians, a Russian propaganda arm and two other firms on February 16 with tampering in the election to boost Trump, McMaster said the evidence of Moscow's meddling was "incontrovertible".

Despite his public praise of McMaster, Trump has never liked him. Because it was long and detailed and hard to understand.

Mattis was scheduled to brief Trump on Wednesday. So this is hardly a shock.

White House officials were working to find a compromise that would allow Kushner to continue his work as a senior adviser to Trump, another source familiar with the situation said, also speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal White House matters. In a West Wing where personal relationships are tantamount, and office politics can resemble Lord of the Flies, McMaster has remained distant from Kelly and Defense Secretary James Mattis, Politico reports.

Trump said on Twitter at the time that the military "cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail".

Most officials could not confirm what to offer a new job for McMaster, who might be nominated if he were to leave the White House.

A top member of President Donald Trump's inner circle could be headed out of the White House.

Among options to replace McMaster is General Vincent Brooks, the current commander of United States forces in South Korea.

"There have been running battles between Trump and his generals", said one of the officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity.

A second defense official said McMaster is well aware of those political sensitivities.

A Rand Corp. study commissioned by the Pentagon ahead of its 2016 policy change found that there were 1,320 to 6,630 transgender service members among 1.3 million people on active duty - less than 1 percent of the force.
