New video obtained by The Blast shows national security adviser H.R. McMaster relaxing in Southern California over the weekend, as reports claimed he would be leaving the administration.
The Blast reports McMaster was on Balboa Island in Newport Beach enjoying his time paddle boarding Sunday afternoon.
NBC News reported Thursday that sources claimed he would be exiting his position as early as next month. The White House however denied those claims.
According to a pool report, spokesman Michael Anton responded with a statement, "President Trump said that the NBC News story is ‘fake news,’ and told McMaster that he is doing a great job."
The White House said there were no planned personnel announcements.
