National Security Council spokesman Michael Anton is leaving the administration, a senior White House official confirmed to The Hill on Sunday evening.
It is the latest move in a wide-ranging shakeup of President Trump’s national security and foreign policy teams.
The official said that Trump had called Anton on Sunday and thanked him for his service. The president expressed personal regard for Anton and said he would be missed.
Anton’s exit comes soon after national security adviser H.R. McMaster departed. McMaster is being replaced by John Bolton, who served as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations under President George W. Bush.
