Sarah Sanders Counters Reports: H.R. McMaster Isn’t Going Anywhere

The White House is now pushing back on reports that President Donald Trump decided to fire National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, saying there is no change occurring.

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders took to Twitter to deny the claims, which were first reported by The Washington Post.

News of the rumored ousting quickly spread across the media, which The Post said was confirmed by “five people with knowledge of the plans.”

Despite Sanders’s denial, reporters remain skeptical, and FOX‘s Fin Gomez found one official who corroborated The Post‘s claims.

To further complicate matters, Axios reporter Jonathan Swan noted that the wording of Sanders’s statement didn’t offer much clarity as to the potential timeline for another staff shakeup.
