K.T. McFarland served as Ronald Reagan’s Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs, where she earned the Defense Distinguished Service Medal. She’ll now serve as Donald Trump’s deputy national security adviser. As Politico reports:
McFarland, a Fox News analyst, served as an official in the Reagan White House. She also unsuccessfully ran for U.S. Senate in New York in 2006.
“In asking KT McFarland to become his Deputy National Security Advisor, President-elect Trump has brought to the top ranks of his Administration one of our country’s most experienced, informed, and wise foreign policy and national security experts” former Sen. Joe Lieberman said in a release. “She is a woman of honor, compassion, and patriotism.”
Trump previously announced that retired Gen. Michael Flynn will serve as his national security adviser.
General Flynn welcomed McFarland with open arms:
So proud & honored to have KT McFarland as part of our National Security team. She will help us #MAGA
