US's new security adviser meets with Japanese and South Korean counterparts

US's new security adviser meets with Japanese and South Korean counterparts

Mr. Bossert's resignation coincided with the arrival of John R. Bolton as the president's national security adviser, and was an unmistakable sign that Mr. Bolton is intent on naming his own people.

"I'm not going to get into specific details about the ongoings of personnel". Bossert also suffered from a confusing chain of command inside the White House.

"The administration thanks Schadlow for her service and leadership", The Hill quoted White House spokesman Raj Shah as saying on Wednesday.

Bossert has been involved in many of President Donald Trump's most important initiatives, including the construction of the southern border wall, CNBC reports, as well as leading the administration's response to the devastating hurricanes previous year that affected Puerto Rico, Florida and Texas.

He also discounted any potential impact of Russian manipulation of social media in the 2016 election. Monday, Bossert said "no voter in this country was influenced" by Russian Federation during the 2016 vote.

Two more advisors on Trump's national security team have resigned in the past 24 hours.

Under the George W. Bush administration, the HSC and NSC worked as separate staffs.

While Bolton, a controversial foreign-policy hawk and former ambassador to the United Nations, is reportedly putting together a new team, the White House hasn't yet announced any replacements for the outgoing officials. One former senior administration official called him a "steady hand and a workhorse". He added: "At the end of the day the only thing that creates instability or the perception of it is (a) the coverage and (b) the turnover".
