The Army's former vice chief of staff is a famous hawk known these days for his Fox News appearances as a national security analyst.

Keane has the expertise and military background most valued by Trump.

However, there are signs of deep policy disagreements between the two leaders, as there were with the president and Mattis.

Trump recently contemplated trimming the defense budget by $700 billion, a move Keane warned, "would be a huge mistake."

He's also known for not liking Mick Mulvaney, Trump's fiscally conservative budget director and acting White House chief of staff.

Yesterday Keane said he agreed with Mattis in opposing Trump's Syria decision – arguing our Kurdish allies will be slaughtered as soon as the U.S. military leaves.
