Trump to pick KT McFarland to be deputy national security adviser

President-elect Donald Trump on Friday chose Fox News national security analyst KT McFarland to serve as his deputy national security adviser, Politico reported, citing a transition aide. McFarland previously served as a White House spokesperson under former President Ronald Reagan and as an official in the Pentagon. In 2006, she launched an unsuccessful bid to run for the New York Senate seat held by then-Sen. Hillary Clinton.

McFarland would report to retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, who Trump named national security adviser.
