John Robert Bolton (born November 20, 1948) is an American diplomat and attorney, who is currently the National Security Advisor-designate of the United States. He is expected to begin his tenure as National Security Advisor on April 9, 2018.

A devout right winger ( so bad he doesn’t make left turns in his car)  nationalist and conservative,  ( TRANSLATION:   WARMONGER AND RIGHT WINGER NUTCASE By MANY THINKERS)  Bolton served as the United States Ambassador to the United Nations from August 2005 until December 2006 as a recess appointee by President George W. Bush.  he didn’t last long, it was his mouth that got him in trouble.

He resigned in December 2006, when the recess appointment would have otherwise ended, because he was unlikely to win confirmation from the Senate in which a newly elected Democratic Party majority would be taking control in January 2007.  

INSIDER:   He was also considered fairly dangerous and not well liked. only liked on FOX faux news as an agitator.

On March 22, 2018, President Donald Trump announced his appointment as National Security Advisor, to take office on April 9, 2018.  LORD HELP US

It's no small irony that the same week in which ultra-hawk John Bolton finally rose to a position of power at the White House also marked the 15th anniversary of the disastrous war he helped birth.

Bolton, a veteran “swamp” creature who held several national security posts in both Bush administrations, is poised to replace H.R. McMaster as national security adviser in early April. McMaster’s departure and Bolton’s appointment were both expected after weeks of White House whispers, but their tweeted confirmation on Thursday still set alarm bells ringing across the capital.

There are few more notorious hard-liners in Washington than Bolton, a 69-year-old former diplomat known for being profoundly undiplomatic. He shares President Trump’s scorn for multilateralism, and his loathing for the United Nations (where Bolton served a brief stint as U.S. ambassador) is matched by his contempt for the European Union. He sees both institutions as forums for ponderous deliberations that undermine American sovereignty and impede Washington's ability to act decisively.

Bolton’s geopolitical impatience matches his rumored professional demeanor: Allegations of bullying and abuse trail his conduct in office. In 2005 congressional testimony, he was famously described as a “kick-down, kiss-up” manager by a State Department colleague. That insight derailed his chances of permanently securing the U.N. post (he was later chosen by recess appointment). But under Trump, Bolton’s bellicosity has catapulted him into the most important foreign policy position in the White House.
