Trump Said to Name McFarland as Deputy National Security Adviser

McFarland as deputy national security adviser, Trump's transition team announced on Friday.

McFarland, known as "KT", is now a FOX News national security analyst and worked in the Pentagon during the Reagan administration. Joe Lieberman, once the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee and a Democratic vice presidential candidate, on Friday praised President-elect Donald Trump's picks for the White House office of national security.

Trump said McGhan, who served as his campaign attorney, 'has a brilliant legal mind, excellent character and a deep understanding of constitutional law'.

"He will play a critical role in our administration". McGahn was Trump's campaign lawyer and is now his counselor for the transition effort. "Foreign policy, national security, defense is not the president-elect's skill", she said last week on Fox News.

She will serve as deputy under National Security Adviser-designee Michael Flynn, a retired lieutenant general and a fierce critic of Obama's stances on Islamist extremism.

McFarland ran unsuccessfully for U.S. Senate in NY in 2006. "She will help us".

McGahn will have the unique role of advising the NY billionaire on how to best separate his business and family ties to avoid conflicts of interest while serving in the White House.

McFarland dismissed suggestions that Trump should look at global interests, rather than USA interests, in making policy decisions.

"I am honored to continue advising President-elect Trump in the Trump-Pence administration", McGahn said in a statement.

Trump named Kathleen Troia "K.T".

Trump has spoken with five more foreign leaders since leaving NY for Florida on Tuesday, his transition team said.

Trump has always been familiar with the McGahn family.

Neither position requires confirmation by the U.S Senate.

Having faced criticism about the inexperience of his initial picks, Trump finds in McFarland someone who previously worked under three presidents, although none since Ronald Reagan.

McFarland will join the team lead by Michael Flynn, who was appointed on November 18 to the top national security post.

McFarland, 65, is known for her hawkish views in foreign policy. Trump had tweeted Tuesday that he is "seriously considering" Carson for the HUD post, and Carson tweeted Wednesday that "an announcement is forthcoming about my role in helping to make America great again, " though he declined to be more specific.

McFarland is President-elect Trump's third female appointee (after South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley as United Nations ambassador and businesswoman Betsy DeVos for education secretary).
