Two Deputy National Security Advisors stepping down

On Wednesday, National Security Council deputy Nadia Schadlow said goodbye.

She was tapped in January to take over for Dina Powell, who chose to step down a year ago as Deputy National Security Adviser. Her last day at the White House will be April 27. The strategy has set a strong foundation going forward for protecting the homeland, promoting American prosperity, preserving peace through strength and advancing American influence. "We wish Nadia and her family the best", he said in a statement sent to various news outlets.

Bolton is Trump's third national security adviser, replacing H.R. McMaster, who replaced Michael Flynn.

Hours after White House Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert announced he was resigning, the administration signaled Tuesday that John Bolton was through with what appears to be a purge of personnel within the National Security Council he now heads. In fact, it is being said that Nadia's resignation has brought the National Security Adviser Bolton one-step closer "to build his own NSC leadership team".

This is a breaking news story and will be updated if more information becomes available. "And I am particularly proud that you were able to submit your NSS to Congress earlier than any previous administration ... on time and under budget!" Recently, Trump's national security spokesperson Michael Anton quit the White House to return to writing and academics. Bolton, a longtime advocate of pre-emptive strikes against rogue regimes like Iran and North Korea, reported for work at the White House on Monday.

Bossert, who also served in the George W. Bush administration, wasn't a marquee name, but he was liked by Trump, senior administration officials said, and often defended his agenda in meetings and in interviews with the media.

Trump appointed John Bolton, a former USA ambassador to the United Nations, to replace McMaster. Today, Deputy National Security Adviser Rick Waddell has handed in his own notice.
