White House preparing for exit of national security advisor HR McMaster

President Donald Trump shakes hands with National Security Adviser Army Lt. Gen. H.R. Mc Master at his Mar-a Lago estate in Palm Beach Florida

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.

President Trump extolled the virtues of McMaster in a White House statement after nominating him to the senior aide position.

White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah said Thursday that the Trump administration had no announcements regarding McMaster's possible departure from the White House, but stopped short of an outright denial of the report.

Most recently, Trump publicly disputed his advisor's appraisal of Russia's interference in the 2016 election after McMaster called it "incontrovertible".

McMaster, who took on the role last February, has been known to storm out of the West Wing in fits of rage, according to The Washington Post.

National Security Council spokesman Michael Anton dismissed reports of McMaster's departure, telling CNN, "I was just with President Trump and H.R. McMaster in the Oval Office".

Since then, McMaster has publicly clashed with President Trump on the Russian Federation investigation and his relationship with the president has reportedly gotten tense. W. Bush White House.

McMaster came to the White House previous year to replace Michael Flynn.

In the White House, McMaster is credited with bringing order to a National Security Council that was overwhelmed by chaos and sinking morale after the firing of Michael Flynn, Trump's first national-security adviser.

"Look, Gen. McMaster's not going anywhere", Sanders said on "Fox & Friends".

McMaster has had an especially strained relationship with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, a favorite of the president's, who has been slow to respond to McMaster's requests for military options to counter adversaries such as Iran and North Korea, officials said.

Sources with knowledge of McMaster's standing in the White House have repeatedly said that he has been on thin ice for months.

However, sources tell Garrett that the tension regarding McMaster is real, and that an exit strategy may now be in the works.
