Mr Bolton have already served in the George W. Bush administration. He served as the ambassador to the United Nations. In a recent interview, he said that he will paly the role of an honest broker who will bring different views in front of the president and Mr Trump will decide accordingly.
When the president will take the final decision, it is his duty to make sure the Bureaucracies will get the decision and will implement it effectively.
Bolton criticized the former work done by the national security team by saying, “The president cannot conduct diplomacy is some munchkin in the white house is leaking information to the news media which will be simply unacceptable”.
Lindsey Graham, Senator of the South Carolina said, “selecting John Bolton as national security adviser is good news for America’s allies and bad news for America’s enemies”.
He added, “Bolton has a firm understanding of the threats we face from North Korea, Iran and radical Islam”.
With the shuffling in the cabinet with the new security adviser and Mike Pompeo as the secretary of the state , the policy will be more aggressive than ever before and everything will be left out to president’s gut instincts.
