President Trump likes to schedule meetings and interviews at his Mar-a-Lago Florida estate, or what he calls “the southern White House,” and tweeted his intentions of doing so again on Saturday (see below).
Today, the president will be interviewing at least four people for the recently vacated position of U.S. national security adviser.
Trump told reporters while on Air Force One on Saturday that there are many people interested in the position but he may have a personal favorite to fill the job.
President Trump said, “I’ve been thinking about someone for the last three or four days.” He added, “We’ll see what happens. I’m meeting with that person. They’re all good, they’re all great people.”
Will be having many meetings this weekend at The Southern White House. Big 5:00 P.M. speech in Melbourne, Florida. A lot to talk about!

According to a Reuters, Trump told reporters on Air Force One that it is his intention to “make a decision over the next couple of days.”
Some of the possible candidates for the new position that Trump will be meeting with are: retired Army Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg; John Bolton, a former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations; Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster; and the present superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Lt. Gen. Robert Caslen.
The president originally had a first choice in retired Vice Admiral Robert Harward, but the admiral declined.
