Trump national security adviser KT McFarland 'to step down'

President Donald Trump’s deputy National Security adviser, KT McFarland, has been asked to step down after just three months, US media say.

Ms McFarland, an ex-Fox News analyst, has been offered the function of ambassador to Singapore instead, Bloomberg and Reuters document.

It comes days after Mr Trump removed his senior strategist Steve Bannon from the National Safety Council (NSC).

The NSC advises the president on Nationwide Safety and overseas affairs.
