Herbert Raymond "H. R." McMaster is a United States Army lieutenant general, "a maverick military intellectual",[1] and the incoming National Security Advisor to Donald Trump. Jeff Schechtman, who interviewed him in 1997, remarked that "President Donald Trump has picked as his national security advisor a man who, at least 20 years ago, believed in the importance of character. A man who believed that presidential advisors should not lie and that they should speak truth to power."[2]

Rejection of the label “radical Islamic terrorism”

McMaster is reported to have objected to the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism”, because terrorists are "un-Islamic".[3]
