John Bolton Energizes Trump’s Agenda—And His Own

Tuesday 13:36 GMT

Soon after taking the helm as President Trump’s third national security adviser, John Bolton installed a gold-framed painting of President George H.W. Bush sitting at the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office, surrounded by his vice president, national security adviser and the secretaries of State and Defense as they discussed plans to invade Iraq in 1990.

“If John ever behaved in a way that led people in the administration to refer to him as ‘President Bolton,’ his effectiveness would be destroyed,” said Elliott Abrams, a longtime Bolton friend and one time member of President George W. Bush’s National Security Council. “It’s critical that the president never think that, and no one understands that better than John.”
