Bolton, as USA ambassador, was sharply critical of the United Nations and its notoriously cumbersome bureaucracy - a view of multilateral obligations that echoes that of Trump. "Iraq was a waste of blood and treasure".
According to a White House official, Trump and McMaster mutually agreed that the latter will resign as the National Security Adviser (NSA).
As Under Secretary, he repeatedly advocated tough measures against the nuclear weapons programs of both Iran and North Korea, and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction generally.
"He has won many battles and his bravery and toughness are legendary".
Unlike Bolton and the Bush administration, Trump has famously little appetite for troop-heavy regime change and "nation building".
"He is among the most hawkish of neoconservative hawks", Mr Bennett says.
But the contract between the political action committee and Cambridge, a copy of which was obtained by the New York Times, offers more detail on just what Bolton was buying. -North Korea summit - the first of its kind - is odd. It's an isolationist, protectionist platform within which he clearly craves the freedom to use all the levers of US power and influence - including the military - as and when he wishes.
At that time, the North's state-run Korean Central News Agency regularly denounced Bolton, calling him "human scum and a bloodsucker". Mr Bolton has publicly defended the option of a pre-emptive strike against North Korea's nuclear arsenal, and has strongly argued for the United States to abandon the Iran nuclear deal.
President Donald Trump's choice of John Bolton as his new national security adviser - and his ongoing escalation of trade hostilities and reshuffling of his legal team - have all been widely interpreted as evidence that Trump is finally governing and conducting himself as he wanted to all along. With over a year to get his sea legs, Trump is feeling his oats and remaking the administration more in his image by surrounding himself with like-minded hawks. Bolton is a fierce critic of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and a proponent of preventative war with North Korea. If he was reportedly turned off by Bolton's mustache during job interviews, imagine that mustache showing up to brief him every day.
It was a familiar scenario after the firing last week of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson: His eventual departure had been viewed as a certainty ever since he was reported to have called the president a "moron" after a meeting on Afghanistan strategy last July.
"I am thankful to President Donald J. Trump for the opportunity to serve him and our nation as national security advisor".
As Trump takes a more active role in reshaping his White House, the same assertive decision-making style is beginning to surface on matters of policy. "This new generation of missiles has basically took us by surprise", said Hill, who argued that "we've kind of lost all the fidelity on things that we gained by engaging with them, by talking to them".
Significantly, the New York Times editorial cites Bolton's attitude to Russian Federation as his one saving grace. He showed disregard for the opinions of others, caring little what effect this had on his global counterparts.
Writing in the Wall Street Journal in 2016, Bolton called on the United States to play the "Taiwan card" by upgrading official ties with the island that China regards as an integral part of its territory.
Bolton, meanwhile, has asserted projection of American power throughout the world, nearly the opposite of Trump's views.
But critics on both sides of politics have slammed the appointment.
"Using online ad networks like Facebook, Yahoo, Twitter, Collective, Direct TV, Dish Network, the John Bolton SuperPAC pioneered new technology that delivers personality-based advertising to individual voters across digital platforms", according to a memo obtained by The Post. It's probably too early - and over simplistic - to talk of the development of a "Trump doctrine".
"You just hired someone who is likely to start another wasteful war!", tweeted another.

And just to up the shadiness level , his super-PAC has been a customer of Facebook-data-swiping Cambridge Analytica since 2014. Bolton has maintained a pair of political committees, which he has used to funnel political support to hawkish candidates.
