WASHINGTON, Nov. 25 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President-elect Donald Trump on Friday named K.T. McFarland as his deputy national security adviser.
"I am proud that KT has once again decided to serve our country and join my national security team," Trump said in a statement.
"I'm honored and humbled that he has asked me to be part of his team," McFarland said in response.
Michael Flynn, who had been named national security adviser, tweeted "So proud and honored to have KT McFarland as part of our National Security team. She will help us."
McFarland, 65, is known for her hawkish views in foreign policy. She has served in various national security posts under Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations and is now a national security commentator.
