K.T. McFarland

Presidential Senior Adviser

  • K.T. McFarland, a senior adviser to Donald Trump, was removed from the National Security Council principals committee after a reorganization gave National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster more authority to shape the council in his image. NSC Adviser H. R. McMaster and McFarland were often at odds and Trump gave him the authority to remove her after McMaster insisted on having more control of the council.
  • Donald Trump's soon to be Deputy National Security Adviser once accused President Obama of supporting ISIS and other terrorist groups because he decided to attend the Paris Climate Conference over focusing solely on defeating ISIS. She claimed that President Obama's attendance at the conference "gives encouragement to the terrorists who feel that they have been selected and chosen by Allah to establish the caliphate and kill everybody who disagrees with them."
