Trump fired national security adviser McMaster

35
US President Donald Trump fired his national security assistant, Herbert MacMaster. His place will be taken by former US representative to the United Nations, John Bolton. Trump has traditionally reported on staff shifts via Twitter:
I am pleased to announce the decision that from April 9 (former) Ambassador (to the UN) John Bolton will be my new national security assistant.



At the same time, Trump thanked McMaster for his "outstanding" work and added that he "will forever remain a friend."

Trump fired national security adviser McMaster


Recall that in his post, MacMaster served for a little over a year - since February 2017, when he replaced Michael Flynn in the position.

What is known about John Bolton?

He has a law degree. From 2001 to 2005, he served as deputy head of the US Department of State — head of the Arms Control and International Security Department. It was during his campaign for the unilateral withdrawal of the United States from the ABM Treaty. In the 2005-2006 years, Bolton was the US envoy to the UN.

On the specific reasons for the dismissal of McMaster Trump in the social network is not reported.

      Most likely this is a change of lobbying team for a new arms race. So far, a free US budget allows pockets of arms manufacturers and their lobby to be poured. Trump is an oligarch, this is his element.

          Horseradish radish is not sweeter.
          Bolton is known for his conservative views on foreign policy. He is a supporter of the hard line in relation to the countries of the so-called "axis of evil": North Korea, Iran and Cuba, as well as in relation to Russia and its allies. In particular, in 2002 he indicted the Cuban leadership and Castro personally for exporting biological weapons to “rogue countries”. In 2003, he became an active supporter of the invasion of Iraq. In May 2007, Bolton called on the US Presidential Administration to conduct a military operation against Iran as soon as possible. Despite the fact that Bolton has been the US representative to the UN for more than a year, he did not hide his skepticism about this institution. So, he once declared that “There is no such thing as a UN. There is only the international community, which can be led only by the world's only superpower, which the United States is. ”
          The same ghoul as its predecessor.

        Bolton has always been my favorite, since the time when he was in the position of US representative to the UN. Always said the right, albeit unpleasant things. And no less important is Israel’s great friend.
        VIVA, Bolton !!!

          But are there Israel’s enemies? I didn’t know.
          I wonder who else Putin ordered to change by telephone? My desire is that every month of his entire term (and the second too) he changes and shuffles the whole top there. As long as they get into business, they’ll get used to farming and there’s a new one ...

          Most likely it is. If you recall how the congressmen put pressure on Trump after winning the election and how he literally dictated his team under their dictation, then along the way he now felt his strength. Rex Tillerson was from Senator McCain's circle; this Macmaster was also from the Clinon-Obama cage. In short, a trimming of Trump’s entourage from elements controlled by the previous administration went.

    It's a good news. Yes, one Russophobe was replaced by another Russophobe, but McMaster was a very intelligent Russophobe, much more dangerous. Bolton is simply a hawk from the Bush era.
    The reason for his resignation was that Macmaster was an opponent of the war with Iran, Bolton was a supporter of him, as was Trump himself.

    This is most likely the reason for all the shuffling. Iran, as the sworn enemy of Israel, is automatically the cruel enemy of the United States. It will never be left behind, up to the destruction and seizure of resources. But how to attack ANOTHER ONE country in this region? And it seems to me that if we had not saved Assad, now Iran would have been rolling fervently through the desert ... If there are adequates at the top of Iran, then they simply must conclude a real military treaty with us .. .with all our bases, communications and electronic warfare ensuing ... But the pro-Israeli lobby in our elite can also sabotage such an agreement. And this is in the US’s favor.
    In any case, the war will go on for a long time.
