John Robert Bolton (1948–) is the former National Security adviser of the United States. He was hired on March 23, 2018 by current U.S. President Donald Trump. He is also a huge wingnut, whose foreign policy is best described as Jeane Kirkpatrick on steroids. He wants to invade Iran and Venezuela and sabotage any peace talks to "prove" peace doesn't work.
Bolton was a mainstay from the George W. Bush Chief of Staff. He, like most of former president Bush's Chief of Staff, is a neoconservative. Despite him being labeled a neocon by most people, he dislikes being called one. He is a former member of the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), and contributed several articles on there.
He left his position as National Security adviser on September 10, 2019.  It is currently unclear whether he resigned or was fired by Trump.
