National security adviser H.R. McMaster looks to be the latest top-level aide in President Donald Trump's White House to head for the exit, NBC News reported Thursday.

The White House is already preparing for his replacement. The White House said Thursday night there were no personnel announcements to make and said the administration often faces "rumor and innuendo" about senior leadership.

The move is apparently being "orchestrated" by Chief of Staff John Kelly and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, and the top candidate to take the position is Ford Motor Company executive Stephen Biegun, the sources told NBC.

Trump lashed out at McMaster after the General said there was "incontrovertible" evidence that Russian Federation had interfered in the US election.

National Security Adviser H.R. McMasters, shown with President Donald Trump, said "we're in a race" with North Korea.

McMaster has always been rumored to be eyeing the exits amid reports of friction with President Donald Trump.

Former Bush U.N. Ambassador John Bolton, who met with Trump at the White House late previous year, is also in the running for the job.

It is said the demoness Holika was conquered through unwavering devotion to the Hindu god of preservation, Lord Vishnu. Many people were seen taking selfies with their mobile phones, capturing the colorful moments during the celebration.

As Cohn sees his authority diminished among the Trump administration's economic players, National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster is also rumored to be resigning.

Yet White House officials are downplaying the reports, claiming the matter is "fake news", and that Trump believes McMaster is doing "a great job".

The White House didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

"The United States will expose and act against those who use cyberspace, social media and other means to advance campaigns of disinformation, subversion and espionage", McMaster said. CNN reported last week that the Pentagon was looking for a military job for McMaster.

McMaster replaced Michael Flynn, who resigned after 24 days in office, over revelations that he lied about his contacts with Russian officials.

Trump and McMaster have had an uneasy relationship.

Sources with knowledge of McMaster's standing in the White House have repeatedly said that he has been on thin ice for months.
