President Trump has offered the national security adviser job to retired Vice Adm. Robert Harward, according to Reuters.
Foreign Policy Magazine reports that Harward was offered the job late Monday night and told Trump he needed a few days to think it over.
Harward would replace Michael Flynn, who resigned from his post over conversations he had with a Russian ambassador before Jan. 20.
The retired vice admiral and Navy SEAL served as deputy commander of United States Central Command when it was under the direction of Gen. James Mattis, Trump's secretary of Defense.
He's not new to matters of national security. Harward served on the National Security Council for President George W. Bush and commissioned the National Counter Terrorism Center.
When he retired in 2013, Harward took a job as chief executive officer at Lockheed Martin in the United Arab Emirates.
