One of President Donald Trump's advisers on the National Security Council was reassigned after criticizing the administration's policy towards Central and South America, CNN reports.

Craig Deare, formerly the senior adviser at the NSC's Western Hemisphere division, was "sent back to his original position," according to White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders.

"I don't think that any person that is there in order to carry out the President's agenda should be against the President's agenda," Sanders told reporters in Florida. "It seems pretty silly that you would have someone who is not supportive of what you are trying to accomplish there to carry out that very thing."

This is the latest personnel problem for the NSC. Recently, former national security advisor Mike Flynn resigned only weeks after taking the post, and Trump's choice to replace him, Vice Adm. Robert Harward, declined the offer.

Sanders added that she wasn't "extending a blanket policy here," but did reiterate that "If you don't support the President's agenda then you shouldn't have a job in the White House."

Politico reported Saturday that Deare had been dismissed from the NSC after he "harshly criticized the president and his chief strategist Steve Bannon and railed against the dysfunction paralyzing the Trump White House," at a Woodrow Wilson Center roundtable, according to an unnamed source.

CNN could not reach Deare for comment.
