Donald Trump has named Lieutenant General HR McMaster as his National Security Adviser, following the resignation of Michael Flynn after just 25 days in the job.
Gen McMaster replaces former national security advisor Michael Flynn, who stepped down when it emerged that he had misled vice-president Mike Pence and other officials over his contacts with officials in Moscow.
President's first choice of National Security Adviser, Vice Admiral Robert Harward, turned down the role.
Speaking from his Palm Beach club, Mar-a-Lago, President Trump also announced retired army Lt Gen Keith Kellogg - who had been his acting adviser, will serve as the Chief of Staff for the National Security Council.
In the same announcement the US President said he will ask John Bolton - a former US ambassador to the UN - to serve in a "somewhat different capacity".

A day after his fiery encounter with the Washington press, US President Donald Trump has enjoyed a far less critical audience outside of DC.
He was cheered to the rafters as he told workers at a factory in the pro-Trump state of South Carolina he would be putting American business and jobs first.
While he suffered another blow in his bid to appoint a national security adviser, his connection with the audience was a reminder of how the maverick candidate succeeded in winning almost 63 million votes.
