Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), frequently joined at the hip of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), is one of President Donald Trump’s most outspoken critics in the legislature. He is alarmed at recent rumors that H.R. McMaster will likely be removed from his post as national security adviser within the Trump administration.
McMaster succeeded Michael Flynn after he was removed from the post for being dishonest with Vice President Mike Pence. McMaster was a favorite of neoconservatives and Never Trumpers from the start, and has tried to save the controversial Iran deal since he assumed his position. He has also reportedly denigrated the President and questioned his mental facilities in private conversations.
This is the type of leadership that Graham desperately wants to remain in the White House.
“I’m very confident in H.R. McMaster. I think he’s learned as much about the war on terror from fighting it than anybody that I know. I think he’s really smart on North Korea and Iran. I hope the president will keep him around,” Graham said during CBS News’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday.
McMaster has contradicted Trump on many key issues as well, with the most recent case being the Russian collusion investigation. On the issue of Russian meddling, McMaster sided with special investigator Robert Mueller and the Democrats. Trump had to go on Twitter to correct his underling.
Trump said: “General McMaster forgot to say that the results of the 2016 election were not impacted or changed by the Russians and that the only Collusion was between Russia and Crooked H, the DNC and the Dems. Remember the Dirty Dossier, Uranium, Speeches, Emails and the Podesta Company!”
Presently, the White House has called rumors of McMaster’s ouster to be “fake news.” This hasn’t stopped Graham from sounding the alarms in favor of one of the globalists’ greatest allies within the Trump administration.
“I have a lot of confidence in Gen. McMaster,” Graham said.
