Trump Picks H.R. McMaster for National Security Adviser

President Trump has chosen Lt. Gen. Herbert Raymond "H.R." McMaster for the National Security Adviser role. The decision comes a week after Michael Flynn resigned and Robert Harward turned down the job.

Trump made the announcement at his "Winter White House," Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Fla. The New York Times reports Trump had been at Mar-a-Lago interviewing candidates for Flynn's replacement.

McMaster said he was privileged to be chosen and is proud to continue his service to America. He is the current director of the Army Capabilities Integration Center.
