John Bolton's dismissal from the post of Assistant President of the United States for national security will make Washington's foreign policy even more "trampocentric", but will not lead to a serious aggravation of the international situation. On the eve of the start of the new presidential campaign, Donald Trump would prefer a more moderate policy than the convinced hawk Bolton advised him.
The fact that Trump fired the third for three years of his stay at the White House, John Bolton, a national security assistant, who worked on the job for about a year and a half, became known Tuesday night. Bolton's resignation was a surprise they were waiting for. He had been preparing for about six months: his views on the international situation and the way the United States acted in the world differed from the presidential ones, Bolton tried to actively influence foreign policy decisions and did not hesitate to oppose Trump. Now, the former presidential assistant was a pronounced hawk, insisted on stepping into Iran and Russia and resisted tensions with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, said Andrei Kortunov, director general of Russian Council for Foreign Affairs. The last drop that was approaching the day of his dismissal could be Bolton's attempt to oppose the agreement with the Taliban and the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan.
