McMaster Opposes Trump's Every Move on Foreign Policy

Reports suggest that Mc Master wants to axe anyone involved with a controversial memo claiming that the “deep state” is engaged in a Maoist-style insurgency against the Trump administration

There are new questions about the future of National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, as President Donald Trump is reportedly growing more frustrated with the lack of progress in Afghanistan. "Senators and the people the president talks to say, 'We love H.R.,'" the official told The Post.

Trump himself has expressed frustration with McMaster after being presented options on key security issues that appear only marginally different than what Obama pursued while he was in office.

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. You know, across the board, we want to get rid of the Iran deal.

"General McMaster and I are working very well together", the statement read.

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. He warned that globalists and Islamists are seeking to destroy America and said it "constituted a national security priority".

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.

According to two senior White House officials, McMaster has been irritated by the impression that he's lost standing with the President. Trump added that McMaster is "a good man and very pro-Israel".

The Company is engaged in developing, producing and marketing generic medicines and a portfolio of specialty medicines. Guinness Asset Management Ltd acquired 100,250 shares as Teva Pharmaceutical Inds Ltd ( TEVA)'s stock declined 15.11%.

The undated and unclassified letter from McMaster was sent in the mail to Rice's home during the last week of April.

Kelly has also sought to tamp down on the type of death-by-leak that now is plaguing his former military colleague.

A White House official said McMaster is "confident that Ezra will make many further significant contributions to national security in another position in the administration".

What's more, allies of McMaster "have accused Bannon and his protege Sebastian Gorka, a cable-news mainstay, of waging a concerted campaign to minimize the national security adviser's influence". This, despite accusations of her "unmasking" Trump transition team members who's names were blacked out in national security reports. McMaster had sought to dismiss him for months, but was prevented after interventions by Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, and Bannon, the senior strategist.

Members of the alt-right tweeted under the hashtag "Fire McMaster" in an attempt to pressure the president. That remark is apparently in rebuttal to a widely circulated Facebook post by Jerusalem Post columnist Caroline Glick, who called McMaster "deeply hostile to Israel".

Glick claims that during Trump's visit to Israel, McMaster "pressured Trump to agree not to let Netanyahu accompany him to the Western Wall".
