Trump Says He's Considering Five Candidates for Top Security Job

Tuesday, 17 September 2019 02:59 PM

President Donald Trump said he’s considering five candidates for national security advisor to replace John Bolton, who left the White House abruptly last week.

Trump told reporters on Tuesday that candidates include Ricky Waddell, a former national security official in the Trump administration, and Robert C. O’Brien, a presidential envoy for hostage affairs. Trump is also considering Keith Kellogg, a national security adviser to Vice President Mike Pence.

Trump ousted Bolton last week, saying he “strongly” disagreed with many of his positions. Bolton -- known for his hard-line approach to U.S. adversaries, including Iran, North Korea and Venezuela -- had also clashed repeatedly with Secretary of State Michael Pompeo.
