Trump has chosen General Herbert Raymond McMaster to be his National Security Advisor
McMaster's prior assignments include Ft. Benning and the International Institute for Strategic Studies in London.
"Throughout his career, McMaster has established himself as a hawk against Russia...
"In a 2016 speech to the Virginia Military Institute, McMaster stressed the need for the US to have 'strategic vision' in its fight against 'hostile revisionist powers' - such as Russia ... and Iran"
Trump national security adviser McMaster
"In a talk given at the Center for Strategic and International Studies - funded by corporations such as ExxonMobil, Hess, Chevron, and Boeing and chaired by individuals including President Trump’s Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson and representatives from Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, and Betchel - General McMaster provides a well-rehearsed pitch collectively reflecting the worldview hashed out by not only the CSIS itself, but admittedly the worldview and objectives of the Brookings Institution, the Council on Foreign Relations, and a myriad of other special-interest driven policy think tanks.
"The talk, published on CSIS’ YouTube channel in May of 2016, features General McMaster in his military uniform accusing Russia of “invading Ukraine” and China of “challenging US interests at the far reaches of American power.”"
