National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster could be next in line to be sacked by U.S. President Donald Trump in the wake of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s firing.
According to Fox News, McMaster is likely to be replaced by John Bolton, a former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
Other departures from the administration would include Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin and Chief of Staff John Kelly.
The sources have cautioned that Trump will make the ultimate decision about all staff changes.
However, the departure of McMaster has been described by multiple sources as “imminent.”
After announcing Tillerson’s dismissal on Twitter Tuesday, Trump himself hinted that more changes might be forthcoming.
“I’ve gotten to know a lot of people very well over the last year,” Trump told reporters at the White House, “and I’m really at a point where we’re getting very close to having the Cabinet and other things that I want.”
