The tensions will be shaped not by Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election - which Mr Trump vehemently denies - but by the US-Russia dynamic in Syria, Iran, and Ukraine. "Iraq was a waste of blood and treasure".

"Let's have this conversation by May, or even before that, and let's see how serious North Korea really is", Bolton said, according to a transcript of his remarks posted on the RFA website on Friday.

Even by Bush administration standards he was tough, variously described as a "hawk's hawk" and the most "hawkish of hawks" in Washington.

A source familiar with those meetings said the two have spent more time recently getting to know each other, discussing Bolton's views and getting a better sense of each other.

With Bolton the newest addition to Trump's ever-changing White House leadership, he will add years of diplomatic experience and political intelligence. Their disagreements are real - Bolton has famously pooh-poohed the kind of summit diplomacy with North Korea that Trump is now committed to.

Significantly, the New York Times editorial cites Bolton's attitude to Russian Federation as his one saving grace.

"The risks of a war with Iran or North Korea are now significantly greater than they were this morning", he says.

Bolton said North Korea had used negotiations in the past to camouflage its weapons development and he was skeptical about its intentions. The president indicated earlier this month that he would meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in May. Bolton advocates regime change in Iran and is opposed to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

But his most potent role will be framing the security decisions that make it to Trump's desk.

Bolton, known for his walrus moustache, is a fierce North Korea hawk who, in his prolific writings and television commentary, has said that preemptive war would likely be the only way to stop North Korea from obtaining the capability to attack the U.S. with a nuclear missile.

Wright called a timeout to settle his team down and remind them to stick to the game plan with plenty of time left. We had been in that game so many times , and I had talked about it so many times , saying this is going to happen.

Now, if Trump decides to abandon the Iran nuclear deal he has an adviser who thinks Iran can be disarmed by force - and was one of the principal players who pushed for the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Bolton's executive wrath is said to be directed primarily at those who were brought in during the Obama administration.

But while Bolton's pugnaciousness might pair well with Trump's, his views could cause friction with the president's anti-interventionist bent. He and Trump have met regularly since Trump took office.

McMaster was Trump's second national security adviser after Michael Flynn was dismissed past year for misleading Vice President Mike Pence about his contacts with the Russian ambassador to the US.

And, as his ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley pushes ahead with efforts to cuts to U.S. funding for the world body, he will have a die-hard unilateralist by his side, cheering him on.

Grote said his son, who lives about 100 yards (91 meters) away from the blast, heard the explosion and raced outside. Police have not uncovered a motive and have not ruled out the possibility those bombings could be hate crimes.

Back in 1994 he was quoted saying the U.S. was the world's "only real power". In a bellicose comment in 2015 in the New York Times entitled "To stop Iran's bomb, bomb Iran", he advocated U.S. military strikes combined with a concerted effort for regime change in Tehran. "If it lost 10 storeys, it wouldn't make a bit of difference", he said.

"It is past time for Washington to bury this ineffective "carrots and sticks" approach", Bolton wrote in August in a Wall Street Journal op-ed calling for pre-emptive military strikes.

He has shown similar disdain for other multilateral institutions, including the International Criminal Court.

"With him as Nat Sec Adv, @POTUS will continue to keep America strong and secure".

Those targeted for removal include officials believed to have been disloyal to President Donald Trump, those who have leaked about the president to the media, his predecessor's team, and those who came in under Obama.
