And just as many suspected, el Presidente Trumpo is replacing McMaster with John Bolton.
I am pleased to announce that, effective 4/9/18, @AmbJohnBolton will be my new National Security Advisor. I am very thankful for the service of General H.R. McMaster who has done an outstanding job & will always remain my friend. There will be an official contact handover on 4/9.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 22, 2018
That is pretty darn yuge.
Bolton has advocated for a first strike against North Korea, and against Iraq, and that could change Trump’s foreign policy significantly.
