President Trump has found a successor to the convicted National Security Adviser John Bolton: Robert O’Brien, previously very successful as a special envoy for hostage matters, will take over the post.

One week after the expulsion of John Bolton, US President Donald Trump announced that he would appoint diplomat Robert O’Brien as the new National Security Adviser. O’Brien has been very successful as a special envoy for hostage affairs in the State Department, Trump wrote on Wednesday on Twitter.

The day before Trump had called the names of five possible successors. In addition to Robert O’Brien, these included former Assistant National Security Adviser Rick Waddell, the Director of the Nuclear Safety Authority, Lisa Gordon-Hagerty, former Chief of Staff Fred Fleitz, and National Security Adviser Mike Pence, Keith Kellogg.

After the expulsion of hardliner John Bolton on Tuesday last week, Trump had to seek a new security adviser. It will be the fourth in his term. Trump had fired Bolton over substantive disagreements.
