White House denies national security advisor McMaster set to exit

ABC's Cecilia Vega Presses Sarah Sanders on Whether Kushner is Causing Distraction Over Loan Scandal

For months, reports have grown of National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster having fallen out of favor, with the administration looking to shuffle him elsewhere, potentially to Afghanistan, and reports this week suggesting such a move could come very soon.

"We frequently face rumour and innuendo about senior administration officials", principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah said. "There are no personnel announcements at this time".

White House chief of staff John Kelly recently asked the Defense Department about potential military positions for McMaster, a White House aide said.

Trump chided McMaster on Twitter, writing that he "forgot to say that the results of the 2016 election were not impacted or changed by the Russians".

McMaster has grown increasingly frustrated with President Trump and is considering retiring to the Pentagon, Reuters reported last week. A spokesperson for Ford told CNN: "Steve has no plans to leave Ford and has had no conversation with the White House about any positions".

A National Security council spokesman dismissed reports of mcmaster's departure and the president referred to an NBC story on it as "fake news".

"He still has confidence in General McMaster", Sanders said during a briefing.

"I was just with President Trump and H.R. McMaster in the Oval Office", Anton said Thursday evening.

During an interview Friday on Fox News, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said, "General McMaster is not going anywhere." she said. However, with at least 10 top administration officials having already changed positions or been completely removed from Trump's team over the previous year, this would not be something new for the White House to work through.

But McMaster, an Army lieutenant general, has often found himself at odds with Trump, and media reports have indicated clashes between the men. McMaster is now overseeing some of the most sensitive issues facing the White House, such as efforts to counter Iran's expanding role in the Middle East and the administration's strategy to roll back North Korea's nuclear weapons program.
