H.R. McMaster, the former national security adviser to President Donald Trump, warned in a speech that some advisers in the White House were a "danger to the Constitution."

McMaster said that they were more interested in their political agenda than they were in serving the president, and that others cared more about a personal mission to save the world from the president.

He made the comments during a speech at an event for the Foundation for Defense of Democracy.

McMaster identified three groups of advisers in the White House, saying he was a part of the first that offered their unbiased opinions for the president.

But there were other groups who had their own agendas.

"The second group of people," McMaster said, are advisers "who are not there to give the president options — they're there to try to manipulate the situation based on their own agenda, not the president's agenda."

He said there was a third group, who "cast themselves in the role of saving the country, even the world, from the president."

"I think those latter two categories of people are actually a danger to the Constitution of the United States," McMaster added.

He did not identify any of the specific people in either group.

McMaster left his position in the White House in March 2018 and John Bolton was named as his replacement.
