Trump adds new candidate to national security adviser hunt

Apparently the White House has another national security adviser candidate. It's West Point superintendent Lt. Col. Robert Caslen, per the White House pool report. Caslen will meet with Trump tomorrow, in addition to acting national security adviser Keith Kellogg, former UN ambassador John Bolton and Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster.

Confirmed: retired Gen. David Petraeus is not a candidate, per the pool.

The missing one: the White House didn't comment on retired Gen. Ray Odierno, who the WSJ reported earlier was a finalist.
