The president has also begun considering candidates to succeed McMaster as national security adviser, a post which does not require Senate confirmation, the sources told ABC News.

The White House says there are no personnel announcements at this time, in response to a Thursday report from NBC News that White House chief of staff John Kelly and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis are engineering the replacement of H.R. McMaster, the national security adviser.

Last month, McMaster said there was "incontrovertible" evidence of a Russian plot to disrupt the 2016 USA election during a speech at the Munich Security Conference.

Principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah says: "We frequently face rumor and innuendo about senior administration officials".

Last month, McMaster told reporters it is his "intention to go on as long and as hard as I can in service of the president and the nation in this job".

Stephen Biegun: Vice president for worldwide government affairs at Ford Motors and a former senior staff member to then-national security adviser Condoleezza Rice in the George W. Bush administration. Those sources added that a whisper campaign against McMaster has existed within the White House for some time and has recently reached a crescendo.

National Security Council spokesman Michael Anton said Trump called the report "fake news" in a meeting with McMaster Thursday and informed McMaster "that he is doing a great job".

Trump and McMaster have had an uneasy relationship. CNN reported last week that the Pentagon was looking for a military job for McMaster.

McMaster came into his role after his predecessor, Michael Flynn, resigned when it was reported he lied to the vice president about his contact with Russian officials during the presidential transition.
