“I am proud that KT has once again decided to serve our country and join my national security team,” Trump said in a statement. “She has tremendous experience and innate talent that will complement the fantastic team we are assembling, which is crucial because nothing is more important than keeping our people safe.”

“The American people chose Donald J. Trump to lead them for a reason,” McFarland said in a statement. “He has the courage, brilliance and energy to Make America Great Again, and nobody has called foreign policy right more than President-elect Trump, and he gets no credit for it. I’m honored and humbled that he has asked me to be part of his team.”

From 1970-1976 McFarland served as an aide to Dr. Henry Kissinger on the National Security Council. In the Reagan White House she served as a principal deputy assistant secretary of defense Pentagon spokesman.
