According to Fox News, retired Navy Vice Admiral Robert Harward turned down the Trump Administration’s offer of the recently vacated national security adviser position;
One source told Fox that retired Navy Vice Admiral Robert Harward “really wanted” to do the job, but ultimately decided that he could not.
A senior administration official said that Harward’s acceptance of the national security adviser post was contingent on the agreement of his family. The official said Harward’s wife and other family members wanted him to remain in the private sector.
“It’s purely a personal issue,” Harward said Thursday evening. “I’m in a unique position finally after being the in military for 40 years to enjoy some personal time.”
Who can blame him in this toxic environment? The media has insured that the best people for jobs will shy away from those jobs just to avoid being the subject of false news.
