Thirty-five years ago, the tenure of a national security adviser to the president was prematurely truncated by a scandal. Ronald Reagan’s choice of Richard Allen’s successor proved to be one of the most consequential of his presidency. Donald Trump is now facing a similar moment — and must make a similar choice.

Early in 1982, President Reagan selected a man of extraordinary competence and vision — William P. Clark.

Judge Clark helped develop and execute the strategy Mr. Reagan used to defeat his time’s "existential threat to freedom," namely, Soviet communism. President Trump recognizes "communism with a God" — Shariah-supremacy — to be a similar threat to today’s America.

Like Ronald Reagan, he needs a top hand who has the judgment and ability to staff up and guide a national security team to achieve victory over Jihad.

Retired Lieutenant General William "Jerry" Boykin is that man.
