But the Secretary of state chose to stay in his place, and trump continued his search for worthy candidates. That acting may become the permanent Advisor, it is not, writes zn.ua.
The US President Donald trump said that he doesn’t consider the candidacy of Secretary of state Mike Pompeo for the post of assistant to the President for national security, the press service of the White house.
“We get along fine with him, our views match a lot… but he would prefer it if there was someone else,” said trump, adding that he agreed with Pompeo.
As reported, the President of the United States Donald trump suddenly fired his national security adviser John Bolton amid disagreements with him about how to deal with foreign policy challenges like North Korea, Iran, Afghanistan and Russia. Temporary duty Bolton assigned to his first Deputy Charles Kupperman.
“Last night I told John Bolton that his services are no longer needed in the White house. I strongly disagree with many of his proposals, like others in the Administration,” wrote trump on Tuesday, adding that next week he will appoint a replacement.
Trump has appointed Bolton’s Advisor on national security in March 2018. Pompeo was very pleased with the resignation of Bolton, with whom he was in conflict relations.
