K.T. McFarland, the deputy national security adviser to President Donald Trump, has been asked to resign from her post in another major shakeup within the Trump administration in less than a week, according to The Daily Caller.
The former national security analyst for Fox News has been asked to step down after less than three months in her position and is expected to be nominated as U.S. ambassador to Singapore, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.
The change will allow National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, who replaced Gen. Michael Flynn after he resigned, to put his own stamp on the NSC and choose his second in command.
McFarland’s removal comes following a reorganization of the NSC in the past week that saw the removal of Trump’s chief strategist Stephen Bannon.
In February, the New York Times reported that McFarland was expected to leave after the resignation of Flynn. However, McFarland stayed on in the Trump administration at the request of the president, according to The Hill.
