Former National Security Advisor Susan Rice: Trump’s National Security Council Shakeup Is “Stone Cold Crazy”

CNN reports:

President Donald Trump’s decision to reorganize the National Security Council in a way that removes the director of intelligence and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from always attending the principals’ committee is “stone cold crazy,” former National Security Adviser Susan Rice said Sunday.

Rice retweeted another Twitter user, P.E. Juan, who said: “Trump loves and trusts the military so much he just kicked them out of the National Security Council and put a Nazi in their place.”

Rice, President Barack Obama’s national security adviser, was reacting to an executive order signed by Trump that said that the head of DNI and the nation’s most senior military officer would be invited to attend the security meetings “where issues pertaining to their responsibilities and expertise are to be discussed.”

White House press secretary Sean Spicer told ABC News Rice’s comments were “clearly inappropriate language from a former ambassador.” NI James Clapper was always included in Obama administration’s NSC principals’ meetings, CNN confirmed.
