President Trump is still looking for a new national security adviser to replace Michael Flynn, who resigned this week.
Trump reportedly offered the job to Vice Admiral Robert Harward, who turned it down. At his press conference Thursday, Trump said he asked for Flynn's resignation because he misled Vice President Mike Pence, not because of the conversations he had with the Russian ambassador during the transition.
