President Trump Just Made A Huge Announcement Via Twitter (TWEET) ⋆ Epeak . Independent news and blogs
Amidst all of the speculation that President Donald Trump is entirely incapable of controlling himself and his behaviors due to raging narcissism — he issues a tweet like this one.
Monday evening, he shared and confirmed his new selection for National Security Adviser, General H.R. McMaster. This nomination comes on the heels of the controversial resignation of Trump’s initial National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn.

In the tweet, he links followers to a video where he reiterates the announcement, flanked by the General and temporary acting National Security Adviser General Keith Kellogg.
It was reported that to secure the position, General McMaster won out against General Kellogg and Vice Admiral Harward, who were named as the other potential nominees.
Donald Trump claims that the decision comes following “two days” of “watching and reading a lot,” and tells Americans that “we are lucky to have him.”
For his part, General McMaster seems humbled and pleased by the decision. In the video, he asserts that:
‘I’m grateful to you for that opportunity and I look forward to joining the national security team and doing everything that I can to advance and protect the interests of the American people.’
As long as he can avoid lying to the Vice President and engaging in likely illegal communications with Russian ambassadors, we suppose he is an improvement.
