John Bolton could help with Taiwan-US visits

Also on Sunday, Hossein Naghavi Hosseini, spokesman for the influential parliamentary committee on national security and foreign policy, told the semi-official ISNA news agency that Bolton's appointment, as well as that of former CIA chief Mike Pompeo to secretary of state, "proves that the final USA objective is overthrowing the Islamic Republic". "If the government can't have a free interchange of ideas among the president's advisers then I think the president is not well served".

President Trump's controversial new National Security Adviser, John Bolton, has big plans for the National Security Council.

Trump's first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, was sacked for lying about contacts with the Russian embassy and has since pleaded guilty for making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Trump won't care what former Obama advisers and NY editorial writers say about Bolton and Pompeo, but at first glance their policy views appear to contradict many of his own.

Donald Trump has repeatedly said the U.S. war in Iraq was a mistake.

Trump took to Twitter to announce the latest in a cascade of staff changes, one which calls the future of a landmark deal to curb Iran's nuclear programme into serious doubt.

The 2018 World Press Photo of the Year contest: And the nominees are... All of the officials requested anonymity to discuss diplomatic conversations.

"The President has made it absolutely clear that he will support a two state solution if the two sides agree to it", the official said.

McMaster was also retained at the time because of the White House's challenge attracting top talent for jobs in the administration due to Trump's "blacklist" of individuals who have criticized the President, his personality and the Russian Federation investigation, according to a senior Republican source. The president indicated earlier this month that he would meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in May. Instead of diplomatic outreach favored by Tillerson and others, Bolton less than a month ago advocated a pre-emptive USA military strike in a Wall Street Journal editorial.

North Korea is immediately within Trump's crosshairs. But Bolton's background complicated his chances for Senate confirmation.

Bolton's PAC was one Cambridge Analytica's first customers when it hired the data firm in August 2014, reportedly for the specific goal of creating psychological profiles on voters based on the Facebook data harvested from millions of users without their knowledge. "Bolton stands out among them", Israel's far-right Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said.

Perhaps what is most important is how America's enemies feel about the pick. He was equally disinclined to indulge the bureaucratic constraints of the State Department back in Washington. Trump had campaigned against the deal and vowed to end it, but instead heeded the advice of two outgoing aides, national security adviser H.R. McMaster and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, to delay the move.

One US official who worked for the State Department when Bolton was at the United Nations said that the assistant secretary of state for global organizations, whose office oversees the US Mission to the United Nations, was in a constant tug-of-war with Bolton and his chief of staff, trying with limited success to rein in Bolton or persuade him to tone down his public comments. He may accommodate Ms Haley - who is very close to Mr Trump - because her views on various foreign policy issues are close to his.

One by one, Donald Trump is sacking the members of the so-called axis of adults in his administration, replacing the grown-ups with ideologues.

It also fit the pattern set with other high-profile departures, including Trump's first chief of staff, Reince Priebus, and press secretary Sean Spicer. But it can be argued that Bolton has been a vocal critic of the establishment GOP and they have kept him out of power as a outcome. Bolton seems likely to combine both of those traits in one pugnacious, mustachioed package.
