Also on Thursday, the newest Trump cheerleading right-wing website Circa published a leaked letter written earlier this year extending former national security adviser Susan Rice's security clearance.
"General McMaster and I are working very well together". But given the rampant speculation about even McMaster's own status - President Donald Trump is said to be considering sending him to Afghanistan to command US-led forces there - few were mollified.
We're celebrating total solar eclipse with these fun gifts. Yay darkness!
Special glasses - or indirect techniques to view the sun - are needed to look at the sun safely during a partial eclipse. The next time a total eclipse will seen in the Continental United States (but not GA, SC, or NC) will be April 8 2024.
"Anyone who meets McMaster among us and is in contact with him is constantly impressed by how pro-Israeli he is", an unnamed Israeli security official told the Haaretz daily on Saturday. The president is making a public endorsement of his national security adviser and pushing back against criticism from conservative media.
Despite those differences, McMaster organized and attended a farewell reception for Harvey this week and voiced support for his pursuit of a new job in the Trump administration. She adds that McMaster, "constantly refers to Israel as the occupying power and insists falsely and constantly that a country named Palestine existed where Israel is located until 1948 when it was destroyed by the Jews". "I was upset while I was there in seeing how empowered Obama holdovers under McMaster were to essentially perpetuate Obama-era policies", another former official told TheDCNF. "He is a good man and very pro-Israel", Trump said in a statement Friday night. In early August, McMaster pushed out Ezra Cohen-Watnick, whom Flynn had hired for the NSC and McMaster had tried to fire earlier in the year (he was blocked by Bannon and others from doing so). "It doesn't work unless we are there for a long time, and if we don't have the appetite to be there a long time, we should just leave".
United Kingdom model 'kidnapped in Milan in bid to auction her off online'
It is claimed the woman was taken to an abandoned office block on July 11 close to Milan's Central station in the boot of a auto . The suspect, who has been named in reports as Lukasz Herba, dropped her off at the consulate on 17 July, police said.
General McMaster had sought to remove him in March when Central Intelligence Agency leaders raised concerns about him, but Mr Cohen-Watnick appealed to Mr Trump's top advisers, Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner.
In classified briefings, Trump would frequently flit between subjects.
Tax breaks for Foxconn plant considered in Wisconsin
Trump says Foxconn CEO Terry Gou told him "off the record" that the Taiwanese company may end up investing $30 billion. Trump made the comments while addressing small-business leaders at the White House.
"The goal was to give the president the idea that Afghanistan was not this hopeless place", an official said - but those efforts reportedly did not reverse Trump's pessimism. On July 21, McMaster dismissed Rich Higgins, a top NSC official who was "seen as an ally of" Bannon, after Higgins wrote a memo claiming that "globalists and Islamists" were trying to undermine Trump, according to The Atlantic. But multiple officials told BuzzFeed News that the main factors were differences between McMaster and Harvey on how the Middle East directorate should be managed as well as some heated discussions about Iran's presence in Syria during policy coordinating meetings. The deal trades sanctions relief for a rollback of Iran's nuclear program.
