National security adviser H.R. McMaster looks to be the latest top-level aide in President Donald Trump's White House to head for the exit, NBC News reported Thursday.

Officials said a front-running candidate to become Trump's third national security adviser is Stephen Biegun, an auto industry executive.

Trump lashed out at McMaster after the General said there was "incontrovertible" evidence that Russian Federation had interfered in the USA election.

However, Donald Trump has instantly slammed a media report that McMaster was going to leave office by the end of April as "fake news", and he praised his National Security Adviser as doing "a great job", National Security Council spokesman Michael Anton said.

Since then, McMaster's relationship with Trump has stabilized, even as rumors of his imminent departure have swirled.

Military leaders are looking for an opening for him, with an eye toward a command in which he would receive a fourth star, a promotion from his three-star rank, said a former military official with knowledge of the Pentagon's efforts. Both the White House official and the former military official requested anonymity to discuss the matter.

NBC cited unnamed people familiar with Mueller's investigation , as well as witnesses who have been interviewed by Mueller's team.

The two have never gotten along, and Trump continues to chafe at McMaster's demeanor when he briefs him, feeling that he is gruff and condescending, according to a source who is familiar with his thinking.

The publication said Trump griped that McMaster droned on too long and was too rigid in his thinking.

Later in February, it was reported that McMaster might soon be out of his position as National Security Advisor and headed back to the military, according to defense and administration officials, CNN reported at the time. Trump forced out Michael Flynn after revelations that he misled administration officials about his contacts with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. He later pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about those interactions.

McMaster has told fellow Army officers that he is honored to work on some of the most important issues facing the country, but he can be quick to show the strains of the job.
