President Donald Trump hinted Friday at possible replacements for his national security advisor, one day after a potential taker for Michael Flynn's key position turned it down.
Retired Navy Vice Adm. Robert Harward decided against an offer to serve in the top position. He told The Associated Press it was "purely a personal issue," though some reports suggested he thought the White House was too chaotic.
Flynn resigned Monday following reports that he talked about sanctions against Russia with Russia's ambassador and misled Vice President Mike Pence about what was discussed. Trump said Thursday he "fired" Flynn "because of what he said to Mike Pence," not because of what he discussed on the calls.
