McMaster becomes the first active-duty officer to serve as national security adviser since Colin Powell, then a three-star general, assumed the job in President Ronald Reagan's final two years in office. Powell went on to grab the military's top job as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Robert Harward, a retired three-star admiral, was Trump's first choice to replace Flynn but turned down the offer. The national security adviser has a special role within the government, working directly with the president but not subject to confirmation by the Senate. McMaster will advise Trump and serve as his coordinator of foreign and defense policy. He will approach matters differently than Flynn, who was a contentious figure before Trump appointed him. After being fired as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014, Flynn publicly lambasted the Obama administration as soft on Islamic extremism.

While Obama was president propaganda of this kind didn't have much influence on American policy but it now has a receptive audience in the White House. The danger is that if Trump becomes mired in domestic political conflicts, as seems very likely, he may view confrontation with Iran as a way of rallying Americans around him. Fox, of course, isn't the only source of the scaremongering but it is one of the more extreme examples. In large sections of the media Iran's deep involvement in Yemen is taken for granted: it is assumed to be so obvious that there is no need to consider or even provide any evidence. This is reminiscent of the run-up to the 2003 war in Iraq when it became almost heretical to question whether Saddam Hussein really had weapons of mass destruction. This isn't to suggest that Iran has no role in Yemen at all but it's important not to exaggerate.

Around 1,000 protesters gathered at the Stonewall Inn bar and monument in New York, Thursday, to oppose US President Donald Trump administration's decision to revoke 'Title IX,' an Obama-era guidance instructing schools to allow transgender people to use the bathrooms of their choice. People attending the demonstration gathered outside the Stonewall Inn chanting "Stand up, fight back" and holding signs reading "Protect Trans Youth" and "Resist" before around 400 protesters marched to Macy's department store and demanded Macy's divest from all Trump related products. While one protesters said "We need to come together as one," another rally attendee assured that "We are there for you, we will protect you, and we will be the victors at the end of the day" while speaking to the crowd. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer confirmed the new policy during a press conference in Washington DC on Thursday, and stated that the issue will be left up to individual states.
