Trump Isn't Thrilled About Working With McMaster Because He Doesn't Like Lectures

Although it might be hard to believe, it looks like yet another one of President Trump’s top advisers might be on his way out the door. According to multiple recent reports, President Trump has frequently complained about his national security adviser H.R. McMaster, calling him "a pain."

According to an article published in the New York Times earlier this week: "Mr. Trump, who still openly laments having to dismiss his first national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, has groused that General McMaster talks too much in meetings, and the president has referred to him as 'a pain,' according to one of the officials."

The article goes on to note in meetings with foreign leaders, "General McMaster, in particular, has tried to insert caveats or gentle corrections into conversations when he believes the president is straying off topic or onto boggy diplomatic ground."

Moreover, based on a Bloomberg report from last week, the apparent conflict between the two is common knowledge at the White House and doesn’t seem to be getting any better. Other media sources have also claimed that Trump has yelled at or complained about McMaster to other staff members on a number of occasions.

The NYT article also alleges that Trump is "disillusioned" with McMaster because he "has failed to read the president — by not giving him a chance to ask questions during briefings, at times even lecturing Trump."

Keep in mind that these leaks and other leaks that have been damaging to Trump could be being made by administration officials who want the outspoken national security adviser out of a job.

That said, even if there is a real conflict between the two men, it cannot be denied that McMaster has recently been speaking out to support the Trump White House. The administration is reeling after many damaging disclosures over the last week or so, especially the backlash over Trump's reckless decision to give sensitive Middle East intelligence information to visiting Russian diplomats.

According to McMaster, he was actually in the room when the disclosure of intelligence occurred, and he argues that Trump's comments to the Russians were "wholly appropriate" and "consistent with the routine sharing of information between the president and any leader with whom he's engaged."
