[5th Reuters]-US President Trump called for a significant reduction in the administrative staff of the National Security Council (NSC). Bloomberg reported late on the 4th as a story about a source. Some sources said it was part of the government's efforts to reduce diplomatic personnel.
According to media reports, President Malverny and President O'Brien (National Security Affairs) have applied for staff reductions to NSC officials.
NSC's current staff is 310, and it is expected to decrease due to natural decline. Mr. Trump's target for reduction is not clear.
The White House has not responded to requests for comments following the report.
