At Least 10 Mames Being Discussed to Replace John Bolton


The White House is currently discussing potential candidates to replace John Bolton as national security adviser after he was ousted Tuesday, with at least 10 names being circulated at this time, several sources told CNN.

While President Donald Trump said he would make a decision "next week," there does not appear to be a short list at the moment. White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley told reporters Tuesday that Charles Kupperman, who was Bolton's deputy, will serve as acting national security adviser until a replacement is picked.
Given Trump's unpredictable nature, sources warn that the President could choose someone who is not being discussed right now to become his fourth national security adviser in less than three years.
But in the short term, these are the individuals who have been mentioned as possible candidates:
Brian Hook, US Special Representative for Iran and senior policy adviser to Mike Pompeo,
Ricky Waddell, Major General in the United States Army Reserve who served for a year as Trump's Deputy National Security Adviser to Trump: Steve Biegun, US Special Representative to North Korea: 
Rob Blair, national security adviser to acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney: Richard Grenell, US ambassador to Germany: Pete Hoekstra, US ambassador to the Netherlands: Keith Kellogg, national security adviser to Vice President Mike Pence: Douglas Macgregor, retired US Army Colonel: Jack Keane, retired four-star general: Fred Fleitz, former chief of staff to Bolton at NSC:
