SHAKEUP: Trump Administration Asks Deputy NSA K.T. McFarland to Step Down

There has been a lot of speculation about President Trump shaking up his administration and at least one staff change has been confirmed. Deputy National Security Adviser, K.T. McFarland has been asked to step down from her position.


McFarland will stay on for just two more weeks.

The move follows Trump’s removal of chief White House strategist Stephen Bannon from his role on the National Security Council last week.

McFarland was a national security analyst for Fox News and worked under three Republican administrations before she was tapped for the role as Trump’s deputy national security adviser.

The New York Times reported in February that McFarland was expected to leave her role following the resignation of national security adviser Michael Flynn.

McFarland will remain in the administration however. She will become the U.S. Ambassador to Singapore.
