The US Presidential Administration proposes to appoint Secretary of State Michael Pompeo to the post of presidential adviser on national security, reports CNN.
“If we listened to him, we would have waged four wars.” What was Bolton fired for?
According to two sources, if appointed, Pompeo will retain his post in the Department of State and become the second politician in US history after Henry Kissinger to combine these posts.
On Wednesday, US President Donald Trump said he was considering five candidates for the post of his national security adviser, calling them all highly qualified specialists.
