President Donald Trump's second national security adviser H.R. McMaster has a book set for publication in April that could pose potential headaches for the White House just as it fights release of a book by McMaster's successor in the job, John Bolton, The Guardian reports.

According to publisher Harper Collins, McMaster's book will be a "groundbreaking reassessment of America's place in the world, drawing from McMaster's long engagement with these issues, including 34 years of service in the U.S. army with multiple tours of duty in battlegrounds overseas."

However, he also writes about his 13 months as national security adviser in the Trump White House," where he was known to regularly clash with the president.

In the bestselling book "A Very Stable Genius: Donald J. Trump's Testing of America," Washington Post reporters Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker note that McMaster had "difficulty holding the president's attention" and that Trump "would get annoyed with what he considered McMaster's lecturing style."

The relationship between the two never improved, according to the book, since, "McMaster felt it was his duty to speak truth to his commander."

Trump has fought publication of Bolton's book, "The Room Where It Happened," set for release in March, saying most of their Oval Office conversations were classified.
