General H.R. McMaster (Ret), former National Security Adviser to President Trump and author of “BATTLEGROUNDS: The Fight to Defend the Free World“, spoke with Brian Kilmeade about President Trump continuing to fight to have all legal votes counted. McMaster says he is not surprised the President is still fighting and sees this as similar to what Al Gore did in 2000. McMaster is bothered by the fact many Americas do not believe the election was fair because he said while in the Trump administration they took a lot of steps to make sure our electoral process was secure. On the firing of Secretary of Defense Mark Esper, McMaster does not think that was a good decision by the president during a transition period because you want to make sure your successor can succeed and prioritize what is best for the country. When asked about former Secretary of Defense saying the Joe Biden has been wrong on every foreign policy and national security issue over the last 40 years, McMaster agrees and hopes Biden does not turn back the clock to 2016 because our challenges have evolved. McMaster also feels the Trump administration’s approach to China in particular has been extremely positive and there ought to be an element of continuity. McMaster hopes Biden resists the temptation of defining his foreign policy only as an opposition to the Trump administration’s foreign policy.
