John Bolton is an atrocious pick for national security adviser

In another long-anticipated, and yet still surprising move, U.S. President Donald Trump has fired National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and announced that he will be replaced by John Bolton, a former ambassador and hard-line analyst. They just copy it and build their own.

Tension between Trump and McMaster had grown increasingly public.

Few thoughts are more terrifying than that the two main sources of foreign policy ideas in the White House will now be John Bolton and, pending Senate confirmation, Mike Pompeo. What makes this account nearly certainly dead on is the word "feels".

It's not just the left that has concerns about Bolton being at the helm of Trump's foreign policy. But not only is Bolton a forceful advocate of his positions, but he has a history of attacking those who disagree with him. There is no particular reason to believe that Trump either favors or opposes that stance. Mr. Bolton, in particular, believes the United States can do what it wants without regard to worldwide law, treaties or the political commitments of previous administrations. But Trump has not meaningfully articulated why we should pull out of it, because he can't.

Not only will he influence U.S. policy in Syria and Iraq, but more immediately and more worryingly, his appointment signals a much tougher USA stance against Iran and North Korea.

Bolton, who was born in Baltimore and graduated summa cum laude from Yale, briefly flirted with running for president in 2015, making campaign trips to early states and candidate cattle-calls. Trump has no idea whether this is true or not - it isn't - but it persuaded Trump to come close to decertifying, though ultimately the adults prevailed that time.

From his perch at Fox News, Bolton won Trump over with his rejection of global deals that restrain the United States and his denunciations of the Iran nuclear agreement and talks with North Korea.

And it comes at a crucial time for the Trump administration, as it prepares to make key decisions on both North Korea and Iran. That means Bolton will likely be stuck with his current staff for the May summit meeting between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

North Korea isn't the only country that Bolton is itching to go to war with; he hopes to take a jab at Iran, too. The title: "The End of North Korea".

Carter said he was "very much distressed" to see McMaster replaced by Bolton.

"I have been concerned at some of the things he's decided", the 93-year-old former president told "CBS This Morning" host Norah O'Donnell, according to a press release from the network.

Remember when we used to reassure ourselves that Trump's foreign policy wouldn't be so bad because there were grown-ups in the room? His posture was rather that he will magically smash our enemies and aggressively represent our interests overseas effortlessly, without any serious cost, because he's tougher, stronger, and smarter than those elites.

It would be hard to find a figure more different from McMaster than Bolton.

On trade, the process leading up to Trump's decision to impose tariffs was a joke with no regard for specifics. The national security adviser is supposed to be an honest broker who provides the president with objective analysis of national security threats and options. Flynn is now cooperating with investigators looking into potential collusion between Russian Federation and Trump's campaign and other potential misdeeds by Trump and those in the president's orbit. In both cases, these people are successfully giving shape to Trump's impulses.

The appointment of Bolton could lead to dramatic changes in the Trump administration's approach to crises around the world, The Washington Post said.
