Former US presidential Advisor on national security was appointed to his post because of the desire of the head of state Donald trump to see a team of people "with opposing views," said press Secretary of the President Kaylee Makanani at the briefing. It is reported by "Interfax".

According to Makanani, Trump likes it when the team is "rivals".

In October 2019, it became known that Bolton is going to write a book about her tenure as national security adviser. Trump has dismissed him a month before, explaining his decision to a strong divergence of views on national security.
