A Trump national security adviser tapped as Singapore envoy

The 65-year-old bids adieu to her role as deputy National Security Advisor to Trump after less than three months amidst a shakeup in the National Security Council (NSC) following the resignation of Lieutenant General Michael Flynn in February.

McFarland defended her approach in a February interview, telling The New York Times, "Not only is this a new administration, but it is a different party, and Donald Trump was elected by people who wanted the status quo thrown out". She was officially brought onboard Trump's transition team in November, weeks after the president's election.

But she told The Hill that President Trump asked her to stay on, and she was "thrilled to do so". Stephen K. Bannon, Trump's chief strategist and senior counselor, is no longer officially part of the principals committee, consisting of agency heads who advise the president on national security issues but can still attend meetings.

A top national security adviser to President Donald Trump is in line to be USA ambassador to Singapore.

McFarland was not a good fit at the NSC, according to a person familiar with White House personnel moves who spoke to Bloomberg.

Women fight for equal pay
Over fifty years after the passage of the Equal Pay Act, women continue to earn about eighty percent as much money as men. Although women make up about half of the college-educated workforce, females are still underpaid in comparison to men.

She was the only woman in the widely distributed photograph of Trump and his aides receiving a briefing about the recent airstrike on Syria at his resort in Florida.

"She isn't leaving immediately", the official said.

She had previously served as assistant secretary of state for educational and cultural affairs under president George W Bush before joining Goldman Sachs.

Kathleen Troia (K.T.) McFarland was brought to the White House by Flynn, who was sacked for not disclosing his level of contacts with Russian Federation to the president or vice president.

In a separate development, the Secret Service said President Trump can not use the personal helicopter parked on the lawn of his Mar-a-Lago resort. The private Sikorsky S-76 carries Trump's name in bold red print on the tail and step.
