Attention leakers and Obama holdovers (or both!) currently working to undermine President Trump’s foreign policy: your days in the White House are reportedly numbered.
Daily Caller reports:
Sources told Foreign Policy that Bolton’s planned purge will start with Obama administration holdovers and eventually broaden to include leakers and those disloyal to the president. […]
Another official issued a warning to former Obama officials — “Everyone who was there during Obama years should start packing their shit.”
But the purge reportedly won’t stop with former Obama appointees. A source told Foreign Policy that Bolton intends to “remove almost all the political [appointees] McMaster brought in.”
Another Daily Caller report adds:
These officials tell TheDC Bolton has been charged by President Donald Trump to stop national security leaks from inside the administration and to change the current relationship between the NSC and the president. […]
“Bolton understands that the NSC’s job is to implement the president’s policy, not to influence policy,” a former Trump NSC official told TheDC.
The official added that outgoing NSA H.R. McMaster would tell staffers before any decision was formulated that “our solutions would start with our values,” but added that “Bolton will throw all that crap out” by focusing on a threat and all available solutions.
As The Gateway Pundit‘s Jim Hoft reported, President Trump announced last Thursday that former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton will replace H.R. McMaster as National Security Advisor next month.
“I am pleased to announce that, effective 4/9/18, @AmbJohnBolton will be my new National Security Advisor. I am very thankful for the service of General H.R. McMaster who has done an outstanding job & will always remain my friend. There will be an official contact handover on 4/9,” Trump tweeted.
