“I know that the president isn’t a big fan of what McMaster’s doing. I don’t understand why he’s allowing a guy who is subverting his foreign policy at every turn to remain in place.”

So why is this subversive still in place? McMaster must be fired.
“EXCLUSIVE: ‘Everything The President Wants To Do, McMaster Opposes,’ Former NSC Officials Say,” by Jonah Bennett and Saagar Enjeti, Daily Caller, August 3, 2017:

“I just fear there is a real creeping of status quo thinking that is taking over the place. I was upset while I was there in seeing how empowered Obama holdovers under McMaster were to essentially perpetuate Obama-era policies,” another former official told TheDCNF.
Both officials expressed particular concern over the Trump administration’s future policy in Afghanistan.
