Trump adds Cotton, McCaul to expanded national security team

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump added 10 names, including a group of U.S. senators and congressmen, to his already comprised national security advisory council Friday. In a press release, Trump announced that Sen. Tom Cotton and Rep. Michael McCaul, the chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, were added to the list after a meeting in New York. The formation of the group was originally announced in March when he named Sen. Jeff Sessions to chair the advisory council. Along with Cotton and McCaul, Sens. Richard Burr, Bob Corker and Jim Inhofe are also listed as members of the council, along with Rep. Darrell Issa and former Attorney General John Ashcroft. Original members of the council are Sessions, Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani. The list was also announced two days before Trump is set to take part in the second presidential debate against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
