bush on foreign policy issues master replaced michael flynn fourteen months ago but also him as a so-called hawk who is previously advocated the use of military force against iran and north korea as has become the custom for trucks major personnel and policy decisions he made the announcement on twitter this is what he tweeted i'm pleased to announce that effective night of april john bolton will be my new national security adviser i am very thankful for the service of general h.r. but master who has done an outstanding job i'm always remain my friend emily howell could has more now on a chopping master's time with the trump administration general h.r. mcmaster will become the national security advisor he arrived at a tumultuous time just a month into his presidency trump had fired national security advisor michael flynn for lying to the vice president over his conversations with the russians it is both diplomacy and sanctions working together but it wasn't long before make master was
enveloped in his own controversy within months of his hiring many trump supporters wanted mcmaster out after reports surfaced he renew the security clearance of president barack obama's national security advisor susan rice they also blamed him for leaked white house conversations with world leaders even starting a hash tag fire mcmaster. although trump stood by his national security adviser publicly privately he reportedly clashed with the army general who didn't like trump's and disciplined style of governing but it was a comment at a security summit in germany in february that many believe was the beginning of the end following a department of justice indictment of thirteen russian nationals accused of interfering in the twenty sixteen u.s. election macmaster said this and as you can see with. f.b.i.
indictment of the evidence is now really incontrovertible and available in the public domain was reportedly livid tweeting that mcmaster forgot to add the results of the two thousand and sixteen election were not impacted or changed by the russians was secretary of state rex tillerson was fired and social media speculation began that mcmaster would be the next to go i'm really at a point where we're getting very close to having regard for other things that are wrong twenty years ago a charming master wrote a book called dereliction of duty about how military generals failed to stand up to presidents during the vietnam war many believe it is this approach that cost vaster his job after futile efforts to constrain the president kimberly hellcat al-jazeera washington. john bolton has served under several republican administrations getting a reputation as
a hawk he has regularly appeared on television advocating hardline policies bolton's argue for military action against a number of u.s. adversaries including north korea and wants the white house to take a strong stance against russia and in two thousand and fifteen york times opinion column the call for air strikes against nuclear facilities in iran is also written forwards for books by a noted anti muslim american authors and while working in the second bush administration he was accused of manipulating intelligence reports he said saddam was saying he developed weapons of mass destruction in iraq a claim that was clearly proven later to be true for spine is a former u.s. associate deputy attorney general who joins us live from washington d.c. bruce thank you very much so let's pick up on that point john bolton was one of the loudest voices advocating for a war that was later clearly proven to be a case built upon a false premises right what does that say about the fact that he still appears to have credibility in some circles and particularly how are at
a time that the middle east is so unstable how is he going to be perceived in the middle east. well i don't think you'll be welcome except in the eyes of israel mr bolton was supporting airstrikes against iran well before two thousand and fifteen in the administration of george bush and mr bolton didn't see a war they didn't like you know when he was at the united nations as an acting ambassador there because he couldn't get confirmed by the senate he said you know diplomacy is useless it could might as well float out into the sea and sink i think what we can see is an escalation of tensions we have in the near future a decision by mr trump as to whether or not to continue to comply with the agreement with iran and other countries with restricting its nuclear ambitions and with mr bolton there is likely that will be capsized i remember that earlier on mr
bolton interviewed mr trump for being deputy secretary of state under mr tillerson and mr tillotson said no and mr bannon who was the last voice in the trump administration who had any sense of restraint on our military projection of force is now gone and he was the one who killed the bolton nomination to be deputy secretary of state and i think that with mr bolton now taking the national security adviser we're just going to have one policy which is going to be confronted everywhere at all places and all times and diplomacy is going to. say that with the . talks assuming they happen are at that meeting between north korea and the u.s. supposedly a few weeks away what kind of influence do you think john bolton will have over that process. well it may well be that there are no talks that there are no agreement says to the venue or to the circumstances in which verification of any
kind of restriction on the nuclear program of north korea occurs it may all fall apart and mr bolton i'm sure is against having the meeting whatsoever and when mr trump just the other day said he anticipates a meeting with vladimir putin the president of russia that's likely also in my judgment to be shipwrecked he does not believe in negotiation you know he only has one strategy so we're bombing in news force and threats over she did bring up russia and that is at least one topic or it seems that that john bolton and donald trump might not be on the same page john bolton hans been a very harsh critic of russia donald trump has not how do you think those two things will be reconciled well i don't know that they can be reconciled although it's true that mr trump verb has been sympathetic to mr putin and nevertheless he's armed the ukrainians to oppose the british and i mean the russian incursion there
he's pronounced a trillion dollar upgrade in our nuclear arsenal he's continued to be old in anti-missile system in eastern europe in supporting increased troop levels in the baltic states so he hasn't actually done anything that tried to diminish the confrontation that's now is being resurrected as though we're in another cold will my belief is now he is going to say i do think that. i was going to i believe that mr bolton is going to take us back to the cold war era and mr trump i think is just going to decide he may say nice things about mr putin but i believe that he will not be able to resist mr bolton in what i call the military industrial complex insistence that they thrive in a cold war atmosphere and that's what we're going to get all right first fine thank you so much for joining us we appreciate it beijing is hit back at the u.s. president's order to impose sixty billion dollars worth of tariffs on chinese
imports it's planning tariffs on three billion dollars worth of american products including pork and steel trump said on thursday the deficit with beijing was out of control and called for reciprocal trade agreements trading in u.s. an asian stocks has been volatile because of fears have an all out trade war some people call it a mirror tariff or a mirror tax just use the word reciprocal if they charge us we charge them the same thing that's true it's got to be that's not the way it is for many many years for many decades it has not been that way and i will say the people we negotiated with smilingly they really agree with us i really believe they cannot believe they've gotten away with this for so long or how as an independent analyst and author of the book read capitalism the fragile financial foundations of china's extraordinary rise he joins us live from singapore and we appreciate it so.
president said a lot there he said that if they charge us this week charge them that back and forth is that too simple a way to look at the way the world economy works. i think that's the trouble isn't it you know if you're going to charge five and they're going to charge five then what's the point of charging five a tall old just goes out in the wash what he has done though he has and we knew he was going to do this is just about a year later than everyone thought he has very much spotlight on china and the feeling that china has abused a lot of the trade practices and the have not followed through in their opening and i've been very unfair as a partner to not just america but to other cars he had their point so i think this is the wrong approach he's taking but he is there's a fundamental problem i think he does i think he does have a fair point many companies and many u.s. companies european is well over the past few years i've certainly said that access to china is becoming harder and harder over the past few decades access to china
has you know has always been difficult especially in let's say financial sectors and the chinese seem to you know have insulated many of their say parts of that are calling me from foreign to foreign companies so he certainly has a point i think this is a rather blunt tool to try and address the and then of course the what is does he actually have an exit strategy it's all very well so of a lot of bluster and hard talk but does he have an exit strategy how do you anticipate this escalating things between the u.s. and china. well this is very difficult to tell of course because if it was is simply just two countries fighting out but that's not what's happening you're talking about global supply chains here to which china is very well integrated into and so it's not just china that suffering it isn't just chinese goods that are being bought you know a lot of people are going to suffer a lot of countries and companies are going to suffer here i would guess that the this is ultimately a negotiating tactic and what he's going to do is that he will put some type of
some place you make a lot of noise and you'll basically try and fight for a better a better deal in ceratin is that you know global trade rules have been taken decades to form you're not revising them just overnight you know i think you may get the chinese may give them a few easy wins but i also don't believe the chinese are going to fold the tall they do need us technology they still need foreign money and the obviously you do buy things from the rest of the world but you know they don't lot stronger and richer than they were a decade or two decades ago and they're going to fight back as well what is the takeaway for from this that other countries may see and the way donald trump is handling this well i think this is you know donald trump is are is an unpredictable characters although he did talk about being harsh on china when he was getting elected you know we all expected this to happen soon after he became president last year and then last year was basically a bit of a you know a wait screw when it came to china he was all buddy buddy was she jinping in this
didn't come through but he is prepared to take some pretty bold actions and certainly make a lot of noise and a lot of trouble in the short term the question is is he actually a rational actor who will be able to follow through and have an exit strategy the trade can continue because trade wars are not beneficial for anybody but he is and he does have a fair point right fraser alley thank you very much for joining us from singapore thank you very much. still ahead on al-jazeera. place in south korea arrest of former president lee young over charges of corruption plus the poisoning of a former double agent and his daughter in the u.k. it's of the recall of a singer a new ambassador i'll tell you. hello
