Tensions rise between Trump and neocon McMaster. Is his firing eminent? —>
President Donald Trump is not getting along with his national security adviser General H.R. McMaster according to a 5/8 report from Bloomberg.
McMaster is the successor to the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency Gen. Mike Flynn who was ousted following a contrived scandal involving the Russians.
The Washington establishment hailed the McMaster pick, but Bloomberg’s Eli Lake reports that Flynn’s replacement has “not gone over well with the one man who matters most,” President Trump himself.
Evidently, McMaster is manipulating information in order to deceive the president into escalating military intervention in the Middle East and he is desperately trying to push Trump towards the globalist nation building policies the president vehemently campaigned against, which is stoking conflict within the Trump administration.
Independent journalist Mike Cernovich confirmed in April that McMaster has been distorting intelligence to deceive the president into starting yet another war. Now, the mainstream media is picking up on his original reports.
According to Bloomberg’s article, Trump was livid at McMaster for calling a South Korean official to assure him that the president wouldn’t follow through on a threat to make that country pay for its own missile defense system. The president reportedly screamed at his national security adviser over the phone for going into business for himself.
Additionally, the article states that Trump has voiced his concern about “the general undermining my policy” during intelligence briefings.
The president has given McMaster less face time. McMaster’s requests to brief the president before some press interviews have been declined. Over the weekend, McMaster did not accompany Trump to meet with Australia’s prime minister; the outgoing deputy national security adviser, K.T. McFarland, attended instead. Bloomberg
Based on White House scuttlebutt, it appears the president’s growing disillusion with his national security adviser could lead to an eventual replacement sooner rather than later. The question is, when and if that happens – will McMaster’s replacement be another neocon globalist? Or will Trump appoint someone who plans on following through with his populist “America first” agenda? (Which means no more useless foreign wars and nation building missions in the Middle East.)
Only time will tell.
