Trump picks McMaster as new national security adviser

President Donald Trump announced Monday that Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster will serve as his next national security adviser, filling the void left last week by the sudden dismissal of Michael Flynn. Trump told reporter that McMaster is a man of tremendous talent and tremendous experience.

Retired Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg, who had been serving as the acting national security adviser since Flynn's exit, will return to his role as chief of staff of the National Security Council.

Neither appointment needs Senate approval.
