North Korea, US must "cut to the chase" on denuclearization: Bolton

John Bolton talks with Ban Ki-moon at the South Korean Foreign Ministry in Seoul

In a CBS interview scheduled to air Tuesday, Jimmy Carter did not mince words when denouncing President Donald Trump's decision to hire John Bolton as his national security adviser.

When he replaces current National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster next month, the former ambassador to the United Nations and fierce foreign policy hawk will reportedly start with holdovers from the Obama administration, multiple sources told Foreign Policy. Two State Department officials and two Western diplomats in Washington said Friday that their offices are now operating under the assumption that Trump will nearly surely pull out of the Iran deal. "The timeline was expedited as they both felt it was important to have the new team in place, instead of constant speculation", the official said. 'This was not related to any one moment or incident, rather it was the result of ongoing conversations between the two, ' a WH official outlined. There will be an official contact handover on 4/9.

Bolton was so controversial a pick even back then that Bush used a recess appointment to make him United Nations ambassador even though the Senate was under GOP control.

As he confronts matters of war and peace with North Korea and Iran, Trump is bringing in an adviser likely to magnify many of his own instinctive qualities: hard-hitting, fiercely nationalistic and eager to confront USA adversaries.

Whereas McMaster was a three-star general who was relatively cautious about taking military action, Bolton takes no options off the table.

But the former president said that he is afraid Bolton's "influence on President Trump will be deleterious to our country".

Early in the Trump administration Bolton - a stalwart of several Republican administrations - was considered as a possible secretary of state and since then has made visits to the West Wing every few months to discuss foreign policy and national security.

Bolton told Fox News' "The Story" that his past comments are now "behind me" and what matters is "what the President says".

The excerpt CBS released on Monday did not include commentary from Carter on why he thought Trump had erred in hiring Bolton.

Pompeo echoes Bolton. He wants to roll back "the disastrous deal" with Iran, and said past year, on Fox News, that the only diplomatic option left with North Korea was "to end the regime".

Tennessee Senator Bob Corker once famously called the White House an "adult daycare" since the entire administration is focused nearly entirely on ensuring that the president doesn't hurt himself or destroy the country when he gets angry. This divergence will not be easy to paper over, and recall that McMaster's acknowledgement of Russian election meddling earned him a public rebuke by Trump and was one of the developments that drove the president to replace him.

The US Vice President Mike Pence has described Bolton as a "highly respected American patriot". McMaster will retire from the Army this summer. "General McMaster's leadership of the National Security Council staff has helped my administration accomplish great things to bolster America's national security". Trump is proud of the diplomatic pressure campaign he thinks forced Kim to invite him to a nuclear summit. President Trump could find Bolton a liability when it comes to voters who expect his attention and their tax dollars focused here at home - voters who will be essential to any hope of holding Congress in November and the White House in 2020.

Trump and Bolton also have volatile tempers and a tendency to want to fire those who challenge them.
