Trump’s choice for national security adviser turns down offer

Trump

US President, Donald Trump‘s, choice for National Security Adviser has turned down the job offer.

Retired Vice-Admiral, Robert Harward, was widely tipped for the post after Mr Trump fired Michael Flynn on Monday.

A White House official said Mr Harward cited family and financial commitments, but US media said the sticking point was he wanted to bring in his own team.

Vice-Admiral Harward told the press that Trump administration was “very accommodating to my needs, both professionally and personally”, adding: “I’m in a unique position finally after being in the military for 40 years to enjoy some personal time.”

Asked whether he had requested to bring in his own staff at the National Security Council (NSC), he said: “I think that’s for the President to address.”

Admiral Robert Harward is now a senior executive at Lockheed Martin.

Mr Flynn had misled US Vice-President, Mike Pence, over his conversations with Russia’s ambassador to the US.

The latest setback emerged hours after Mr Trump, robustly, denied media reports of White House disarray, insisting that his administration was running like a “fine-tuned machine”.
