US President Donald Trump announced the names of five candidates for the position of national security adviser, which was previously held by John Bolton. CBS News reported.
Among the candidates are former Bolton Deputy Rick Waddell, Deputy Secretary of energy for nuclear security Lisa Gordon-Hegerty, head of the center for policy and security Fred Fritz, special envoy of the President on hostage situations Robert O’Brien and Assistant of Vice President of the United States Mike Pence Kate Kellogg.
Trump particularly noted the last candidate: “I love Keith Kellogg. Kellogg has been with me since the beginning. He is wonderful,” the President told reporters.
Early it was reported that the American leader considered as a candidate for the post of Secretary of state Mike Pompeo, but he refused the offer to combine the two positions.
