Stay TOONED: John Bolton in the House

  • Donald J. Trump on Twitter:

President Donald Trump's surprise announcement Thursday to replace his national security adviser H.R. McMaster with John Bolton is not only part of a broader shakeup but represents a shift toward an increasingly hawkish foreign policy posture as he faces major decisions within weeks on North Korea and Iran.

A super PAC led by former USA ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton paid Cambridge Analytica more than $1 million.

A White House official said Trump and McMaster mutually agreed on the resignation.

"Actually although it's certainly true the normal route here is months and months and months of preparation, that would simply play into the North Korean playbook: what they've done many times before", he said, adding that Pyongyang and Washington would need to begin "concrete" discussions on denuclearization as soon as possible. "This was not related to any one moment or incident, rather it was the result of ongoing conversations between the two". Trump tweeted that Mr. McMaster had done "an outstanding job & will always remain my friend". "Maybe one of the worst mistakes that President Trump has made since he's been in office is the appointment of John Bolton".

Not only will he influence United States policy in Syria and Iraq, but more immediately and more worryingly, his appointment signals a much tougher USA stance against Iran and North Korea.

Whereas McMaster was a three-star general who was relatively cautious about taking military action, Bolton takes no options off the table. When nominated by Bush to serve as ambassador to the United Nations - about which Bolton said "if it lost 10 stories, it wouldn't make a bit of difference" - not even Republicans would support him.

The move, which was sudden but not unexpected, signals a more confrontational approach in American foreign policy at a time when the USA president faces mounting challenges, including from Iran and North Korea, the New York Times commented.

Despite once bemoaning Bolton's thick mustache as unbefitting of a senior White House official, Trump has now determined he can look past it, one person familiar with his thinking said. This divergence will not be easy to paper over, and recall that McMaster's acknowledgement of Russian election meddling earned him a public rebuke by Trump and was one of the developments that drove the president to replace him.

Foreign Policy reported that Bolton is planning to remove dozens of current officials, with a focus on those who have been "disloyal" to the president.

"I am particularly anxious that if the Trump-Kim summit fails, Bolton will take that as proof that we must hit North Korea", said Robert Kelly, an American who teaches worldwide relations at Pusan National University in South Korea. Walking in to the White House?

The Facebook data had been obtained by a researcher for academic purposes and improperly shared with Cambridge Analytica, Facebook officials said last week. "General McMaster's leadership of the National Security Council staff has helped my administration accomplish great things to bolster America's national security".

The two have never gotten along, and Trump continues to chafe at McMaster's demeanor when he briefs him, feeling that he is gruff and condescending, according to a source who is familiar with his thinking.

While the views of the president and his top advisers should be in alignment, the national security adviser has a special role.

Bolton was also accused of threatening to fire analysts who disagreed with his conclusions, as well as insubordination, spying on his superiors and leaking documents.
