BREAKING: Trump Taps Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster as new National Security Adviser

Trump Picks Aggressive General To Be National Security Adviser

On Monday President Trump announced through Twitter that he was “Meeting with Generals at Mar-a-Lago in Florida. Very interesting!”

Trump has since deleted that tweet and put out a new one stating “Just named General H.R. McMaster National Security Advisor.”

Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster is an excellent choice for the position because he recognizes that the U.S. was made weak and vulnerable under the Obama administration.

From Heavy:

As a futurist within the Army, it’s McMaster’s job to predict how the U.S. will do against future threats. In an April 2016 testimony before the Air-Land subcommittee of the Senate Armed Services Committee though, he warned that the Army is too small at this point and the shrinking needs to stop.

“We are outranged and outgunned by many potential adversaries,” McMaster said, reports Breaking Defense. “[And] our army in the future risks being too small to secure the nation.”

At the time of his testimony, there were only 980,000 soldiers in the Army. The Army Times later reported that the Army is at its smallest size since before World War II.

“As we look to the future sir, we think that risk will become unacceptable,” McMaster told Senators. Even today, “we’re having a harder and harder time for the smaller force to keep pace with increasing demand.”
