Trump to interview four possible candidates for national security advisor at Mar-a-Lago
New York [U.S.A.], Feb. 19 (ANI): U.S. President Donald Trump is scheduled to interview at least four candidates for the post of the U.S. National Security Advisor in Florida on Sunday.
Speaking to reporters on Air Force One Saturday, Trump said he had "many, many that want the job" and even hinted that he had a favourite to fill the position, as reported by Fox News.
Scheduled to discuss the job with the President at Mar-a-Lago were his acting advisor, retired Army Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg; John Bolton, a former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations; Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster; and the superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Lt. Gen. Robert Caslen.
White House spokesman Sean Spicer said more meetings for the job could happen, which is now open after retired Michael Flynn resigned after revelations that he misled Vice President Mike Pence about discussing sanctions with Russia's ambassador to the U.S. during the transition.
Earlier, Trump's first choice to replace Flynn, retired Vice Adm. Robert Harward, turned down the offer.
Trump tweeted on Saturday that he "will be having many meetings this weekend at The Southern White House." (ANI)
