National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster dismissed reports Tuesday he might be leaving the Trump administration, telling reporters at the daily White House briefing that "I have a job."
"It's a tremendous job every day to advance and protect the interests of American people and to do my best to provide options to our president — and once he makes decisions, to assist with the execution of those decisions," McMaster said.
McMaster and White House counsel Don McGahn have reportedly been told to decide whether they were staying through this year's congressional elections or were leaving.
The Trump White House has seen more first-year staff departures than any other administration — including Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Communications Director Sean Spicer — The Wall Street Journal reported.
McMaster, 55, an Army lieutenant general who remains on active duty, made clear his intentions Tuesday.
"I have a job," he reiterated. "It's my intention to go as long as hard as I can in service of the president and the nation in this job."
