National Security Advisor Replacement Robert Harward Turns Down Job

President Donald Trump's choice to replace Michael Flynn, the National Security Advisor who resigned on Monday, has turned the job.

Former Navy SEAL Robert Harward was offered the position on Wednesday but wanted to bring his own team on board.  This contradicted President Trump's promise to Flynn's team that they could stay, according to Reuters.

Flynn was forced to resign after he failed to disclose facts to the Vice President Mike Pence.

"The thing is, he didn't tell our vice president properly, and then he said he didn't remember. So either way, it wasn't very satisfactory to me," Trump said.
