WASHINGTON D.C. (WOIO) - The Washington Post is reporting President Donald Trump has decided to remove H.R. McMaster from his post as national security adviser, and is weighing potential replacements, according to sources familiar with the situation.

The news comes just days after Trump's decision to fire Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Tillerson was reportedly unaware of his termination until he read the president's announcement on Twitter.

The pair joins scores of other WhIte House officials and staffers who have either been fired or resigned over the last several months.
