>> You're gonna do a great job.>> Donald Trump has decided to fire H.R. McMaster, his national security adviser, the second cabinet member to go this week. That's according to Washington Post on Thursday. Which cited sources that say McMaster won't be let go immediately to buy time to find a good successor and save him from any humiliation.
According to the post sources, the President never clicked with McMaster. They say Trump complained the three star general was too rigid and took to long in his briefings. It's another shock to the President's top ranks this week. After Trump got rid of his Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson on Tuesday, there have been signs a broader shakeup isn't over.
>> I'm really at a point where we're getting very close to having the Cabinet and other things that I want. But there'll always be change, and I think you wanna see change. And I wanna also see different ideas, Larry Kudlow just came in, a little while ago.>> McMaster was national security adviser number two, Trump's first was Michael Flynn, fired a year ago for misleading Vice President Mike Pence about contacts with Russia's ambassador to the US.
The post says Trump is looking at several potentials for number three. Former UN ambassador John Bolton and Keith Kellogg, head of the national security council, are reportedly on the list.
