Trump Reveals His Top 5 Names To Replace John Bolton

Recommended Posts


President Trump Tuesday afternoon revealed to reporters his short list of candidates to replace former national security adviser John Bolton. He presented his "top 5 candidates" which had been whittled down from 15 he was previously reported to be considering. 

Obviously the choice comes at a very sensitive point, given this week's Saudi Aramco attacks and a potential crisis for global oil markets, and after a summer of escalating tensions with Iran which has put Washington and Tehran on a path to war. 

  • Top hostage negotiator Robert O'Brien

  • Former deputy national security adviser Ricky Waddell

  • Department of Energy Under Secretary for Nuclear Security Lisa Gordon-Hagerty

  • Bolton's former chief of staff Fred Fleitz

  • Vice President Mike Pence's national security adviser Keith Kellogg.
