Trump’s Cabinet, top appointments: HR McMaster to replace Michael Flynn as national security adviser – amNY
President Donald Trump may have thought he was done making top appointments, but in recent days he has been forced to find a new national security adviser and a new labor secretary.
Just two days after Michael Flynn resigned as national security adviser, Trump’s nominee for secretary of labor, Andrew Puzder, withdrew his name from consideration.
But Trump wasted no time in finding replacements for Puzder and Flynn.
On Monday, Feb. 20, 2017, Trump announced the appointment of Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster to the role of national security adviser. Trump also nominated R. Alexander Acosta, the dean of the Florida International University College of Law in Miami, as his next secretary of labor on Feb 17.
Acting national security adviser Keith Kellogg has been tapped to become chief of staff of the National Security Council.
