BREAKING: TRUMP’S REPLACEMENT FOR MICHAEL FLYNN TURNS DOWN JOB

The retired admiral President Donald Trump wants to replace Michael Flynn as national security adviser has turned down the job, Financial Times reported, citing two sources familiar with the matter.

Trump offered the position to retired Adm. Robert Harward on Monday, according to Tom Ricks at Foreign Policy.

At the time, the former Navy SEAL commander told the president he’d need some time to “think it over.”

Now Harward has apparently said no to the offer, and Trump has asked him to return to the White House to see if his mind can be changed, according to FT’s sources.

CBS News’ Major Garrett also confirmed the report.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
