"We frequently face rumour and innuendo about senior administration officials", principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah said.

The White House had no immediate reaction and said it had no personnel announcements.

National Security Council spokesman Michael Anton dismissed reports of McMaster's departure, telling CNN, "I was just with President Trump and H.R. McMaster in the Oval Office".

"General McMaster forgot to say that the results of the 2016 election were not impacted or changed by the Russians and that the only Collusion was between Russia and Crooked H [Hillary Clinton], the DNC [Democratic National Committee] and the Dems", Trump tweeted.

US National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster is expected to leave his position by April after clashing repeatedly with President Donald Trump, US media reported.

"The United States will expose and act against those who use cyberspace, social media and other means to advance campaigns of disinformation, subversion and espionage", McMaster said.

As for talk of a White House in upheaval, Sanders pointed out the tax cuts passed late previous year: "If they want to call it chaos, fine, but we call it success and productivity and we're going to keep plugging along". After Mattis met with Biegun at a think tank event he was convinced Biegun would be a good fit for the national security adviser role, the associate said.

She continued that accusations that the White House is in chaos are misguided.

The President has privately expressed irritation with McMaster stemming from differences in "personality and style", a senior Republican source previously told CNN.

NBC reported Thursday that Ford Motor Company Vice President of International Affairs Stephen Biegun is one likely successor to McMaster.

Trump has been at odds with McMaster since the three-star general took the reins from former adviser Michael Flynn last February.
