President Trump's national security adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster is hitting the Sunday show circuit for the second week straight.

McMaster will appear on ABC’s “This Week” following the U.S. military’s Thursday strike on ISIS tunnels in northeastern Afghanistan. Last week he sat down for an interview on "Fox News Sunday."

The latest Sunday shows cap off a week of national security developments, including the U.S. dropping for the first time ever in combat a Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb (MOAB), known as the "mother of all bombs," in Afghanistan, as well as North Korea’s failed attempt to launch a missile early Sunday.

This week's shows will feature other top White House national security officials, including McMaster’s deputy, K.T. McFarland, and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.

McFarland was expected to leave her position soon amid reports she would be nominated to be U.S. ambassador to Singapore.
