Trump defends national security adviser, says McMaster is 'pro

Breitbart attacks quoting "administration officials" alleged McMaster opposed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appearing alongside Trump at the president's recent visit to the Western Wall.

McMaster's firing of Ezra Cohen-Watnick on Wednesday is linked to the arrival of John Kelly, the former secretary of homeland security who took over as chief of staff on Monday.

McMaster is now involved in a power struggle within the Trump administration, facing off against the far-right wing headed by senior adviser Steve Bannon, who is attempting to bring about McMaster's resignation.

"General McMaster and I are working very well together", Trump explained.

It did not discuss Trump's statement about the total investment amount or Trump's claims that Gou told it to him in confidence. The Wisconsin factory is scheduled to open by 2020.

Some of the most prominent survivors from the Flynn era include: Kevin Harrington, the deputy assistant to the president with close ties to Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel; Josh Steinman, special assistant to the president for cyber; Brad Hansell, a mainstream Republican who serves as senior director for transnational threats, and Gorka, a Hungarian-American with an interest in counterterrorism who often defends the president on television.

But the fact he sent the letter to Rice - given the controversy surrounding her and the "unmasking" of members of the Trump campaign, transition and administration in intelligence documents - was not viewed favorably by members of the administration who aren't particular fans of McMaster.

In response to "the president's skepticism that winning in Afghanistan was even possible", McMaster also reportedly showed Trump promising photos of the country.

"At the time, I and other reporters were led to believe that this was the decision of rogue anti-Israel officers at the USA consulate in Jerusalem".

It was revealed on Wednesday in news reports that Rich Higgins, who served as director for strategic planning at the NSC, was sacked July 21. Higgins was sacked for circulating a memo in which he alleged that there was a "Maoist" insurgency within and without the government of "globalists and Islamists". Last month, McMaster joined Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary James Mattis in persuading Trump to recertify Iran's compliance with the Iran nuclear deal; Trump had been leaning toward decertification, which could trigger a crisis with USA allies who favor the deal, struck by Obama.

Last week, McMaster also removed Middle East director Derek Harvey from his position at the NSC due to a "difference in vision", according to a White House source. Harvey may assume another role in the administration.

Bannon was kicked off the NSC's principals committee soon after McMaster became national security adviser. The deal trades sanctions relief for a rollback of Iran's nuclear program.
