After the resignation of Lt. General Michael Flynn from his position as National Security Adviser to President Trump, Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg was named interim National Security Adviser as the decision for a replacement was pondered. On Wednesday morning, it was reported that Trump White House has settled on their top pick to succeed Flynn in the position.
The Washington Post reports that retired Vice Admiral Robert Harward is the top pick to become the new National Security Adviser to the President.
Harward rose through the ranks in the Navy after joining right out of high school. He has served as a Navy SEAL before becoming top commander of the SEALs. Prior to his retirement in 2013, he was a three-star deputy to then-General Mattis, the newly confirmed Secretary of Defense in the Trump administration.
Adding to Harward’s breadth of experience is his role at the National Security Council during the George W. Bush administration. In that position, he combatted terrorism as the director of strategy and policy.
How long will it take Democrats to complain about Vice Admiral Harward and find things to pick up this decorated hero over?
