The US president’s national security adviser, John Bolton, along with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, are known “hawks” when it comes to Tehran, with both Trump appointees often suggesting harsh steps to “deter” an alleged Iran threat.

“I disagree very much with John Bolton. […] John Bolton is doing a very good job, but he takes a generally tough posture. I have other people that don’t take that posture, but the only one that matters is me”, Trump told reporters prior to his departure to Camp David.
