While the national spotlight has shifted to Trump’s former Director of National Security, Mike Flynn, Bloomberg is out with a piece by Eli Lake (previously of Daily Beast and Kurt Eichenwald’s employer Newsweek) suggesting that Flynn’s replacement, H.R. McMaster, is seriously undermining President Trump’s agenda and has fallen out of favor. This is all according to new leaks from McMaster’s ‘allies and adversaries’ inside the White House.
So, McMaster – an ‘establishment masterstroke’ and intellectual, has clashed with Trump in front of underlings, and has allegedly been trying to trick Trump into regime changing guys like Bashar Al Assad and Kim Jong Un – actuibs which would be in direct opposition to the “America 1st” platform Trump was elected on. Moreover, McMaster has apparently been talking down to his new boss.
McMaster’s allies and adversaries inside the White House tell me that Trump is disillusioned with him. This professional military officer has failed to read the president — by not giving him a chance to ask questions during briefings, at times even lecturing Trump.
And while President Trump explicitly reaffirmed his public support of McMaster, the National Intel Director allegedly went behind the President’s back and called South Korea to let them know Trump was full of shit on them paying for their own missile defense Apparently this upset the President, according to the leakers.
Opponents of McMaster have pointed out that he was very close to David Patraeus, former director of the CIA under Obama and commander of US Central Command. McMaster is also a member of the globalist hive known as the ‘Council on Foreign Relations’ – an institute ideologically polar opposite to the nationalist platform Trump campaigned on. And apparently McMaster’s antics have pissed off the boss:
So – McMaster is apparently on the outs, though word that dyed in the wool neocon John Bolton was apparently considered as his replacement makes me think this all might be 4D kabuki theater.If you enjoy the content at iBankCoin, please follow us on Twitter
