Trump Plans to Remove Adviser McMaster, Washington Post Reports

(Bloomberg) -- U.S. President Donald Trump is ready to remove H.R. McMaster as his national security adviser, the Washington Post reported, citing five people with knowledge of his plans.

Trump is willing to take his time over removing the three-star Army general, with whom he never personally gelled, so he has a strong successor lined up, the newspaper said on its website.

The development is part of a broader possible shake-up under consideration by the president that may include senior officials at the White House, according to the newspaper.

Separately, Bloomberg reported Trump hasn’t made a final decision on removing McMaster, citing a White House official.
