NBC: McMaster Dodges Questions About Working With Bannon

In what is being considered a dodge of the question of whether he can work with White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster refused to single out Bannon — or even mention by name — in an appearance Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press."

"I get to work together with a broad range of talented people, and it is a privilege every day to enable the national security team," McMaster told NBC's "Meet the Press" with Chuck Todd, when asked directly about working with the oft-criticized Bannon.

Host Todd then pressed whether McMaster "and Steve Bannon work in that same White House?"

"I am ready to work with anybody to help advance the president's agenda and advance the security, prosperity of the American people," McMaster responded.

Pressed further by Todd whether McMaster believes "Steve Bannon does that?"

"I believe that everyone who works in the White House — who has the privilege, the great privilege every day of serving their nation — should be motivated by that goal," he said.

Fired White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci has also signaled discord with Bannon in his own appearance on ABC's "This Week."

"I think the president knows what he's going to do with Steve Bannon," Scaramucci told host George Stephanopoulos.

"Let's leave it up to the president. It's his decision. But I mean, at the end of the day, I think the president has a very good idea of who the leakers are inside the White House. The president has a very good idea of the people that are undermining his agenda that are serving their own interests."
