BREAKING: Trump’s pick to replace Flynn just turned him down…

It looks like Trump’s pick to replace Mike Flynn is not going as he had hoped. It was reporter earlier that Trump had offered the job to Vice Admiral Robert Harward, but according to the Financial Times, he’s turned down the job:

The Financial Times is reporting that Trump is trying to convince Harward to change his mind, and has called him back to the White House to do so.

They also report that others familiar with the situation say that Harward’s concerns lie in him being able to appoint his own team underneath him. He’s worried that Trump staffers won’t allow him to do that.

If Trump can’t convince him to take the position, then it’s probably a good thing he didn’t give his name at the press conference today.
