Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton had a face-to-face with President Donald Trump at the White House, and now the political world is wondering: Is he the new choice for national security adviser, the slot currently held by H.R. McMaster?
Rumors are swirling.
And really, what a brilliant move this would be on the part of the president. Who better to help Trump dismantle the Iran nuclear deal and cement America’s special relationship with Israel than Bolton?
The Daily Wire has more:
On Tuesday, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton met with President Trump.
umors have been swirling that national security advisor H.R. McMaster may leave his post, and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is rumored to be on tenuous ground. Bolton tweeted on Tuesday:
The premise of Obama's #IranDeal was that if only the United States showed "good faith" and dropped our "harmful intent" toward Iran, they would give up their nuclear program and behave like a normal nation. None of this has happened.

Trump is seemingly ready to jettison the Iran nuclear deal, as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated at the AIPAC conference on Tuesday. Netanyahu said, “President Trump has made it clear that his administration will not accept Iran’s aggression in the region. The President has also made it clear that the flaws of the nuclear deal are not fixed, he will walk away from the deal and restore sanctions.”
Bolton is considered a true hawk on foreign policy; he has served as Assistant Secretary for International Organization Affairs at the State Department from 1989-1993, where he coordinated the effort to rescind the United Nations resolution from the 1970s that equated Zionism with racism, and also was key in the efforts of the U.S. Mission to obtain U.N. resolutions endorsing the use of force to fight Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait. Between 1985-1989 he served as Assistant Attorney General at the Department of Justice.
