President Trump has had some problems when it comes to the position of National Security Advisor. Michael Flynn just resigned this past week. He is desperately looking to fill the role and it seems he has. On national television he said that he will be filling the position with Army Lt. General H.R. McMaster.
The announcement came at a press briefing at his Mar-a-Lago hotel. He made it with two high-level military officials and Fox News was one of the first media outlets to report on the announcement.
Just named General H.R. McMaster National Security Advisor.

He attended the Army War College and Ranger schools. They are some of the most prestigious in the business. Formerly, he served as a Senior consulting fellow at the International Institute of Strategic Studies in London, England on the other side of the pond.
The General was the Director of Army Capabilities IntegrationCenter and Deputy Commanding General, Futures, US Army Training and Doctrine Command three years ago in 2014. His most recent command was serving as Commanding General, Maneuver Center of Excellence at Fort Benning between 2012-2014. He has served in Kabul, Afghanistan.
A holder of a number of degrees, his highest is a PhD in Military History from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Clearly the President chose a very highly qualified and educated candidate. Unlike his last choice this gentleman did not turn such an amazing opportunity down.
This appointment also comes at an opportune time. National Security is a serious issue with the influx of illegal immigrants and radical Islamic terrorists. We need a strong National Security Advisor now more than ever before. One who will follow through with the President’s agenda and policy initiatives.
While he has not proven how he will be in this role, his credentials certainly insinuate he will do an exemplary job while in this position.
