Pompeo ‘last man standing’ after Bolton exits White House


The end of John Bolton’s fractious tenure as national security adviser leaves one man at the helm of the Trump administration’s foreign policy as it manages crises from Iran to North Korea: Secretary of State Michael Pompeo.
From the moment Bolton arrived at the White House in April 2018, he brought a hawkish foreign policy vision honed over decades — a mindset that would inevitably collide with the unorthodox style of Donald Trump and culminate in his firing.
Bolton’s approach stood in contrast to Pompeo’s deference to the president, first as Central Intelligence Agency chief and then as secretary of state.
Pompeo is now without peer on Trump’s national security team.
