Looks like a decision has finally been made, and general Flynn has been replaced. Instead of Flynn has come Joseph Keith Kellogg Jr. who is a retired general officer of the United States army. Kellogg was born on May 12, 1944, and is also known as known as Keith Kellogg. President Donald Trump put Kellogg in charge of the presidential transition agency action team for defense. He was named a foreign policy advisor to then presidential candidate Trump in March 2016. He was named acting National Security Advisor on February 13, 2017 following the resignation of Michael T. Flynn.
