The former presidential adviser on national security was appointed because of the desire of the head of state, Donald Trump, to see people with “opposing views” in the team, said presidential spokeswoman Kaylee Mackenani at a briefing. It is reported by Interfax.
According to Mackenani, Trump likes when there are “rivals” in the team.
In October 2019, it became known that Bolton intends to write a book about his work as a national security adviser. Trump fired him a month before, explaining his decision by a strong divergence of views on national security issues.
