US President Donald Trump announced that he’s appointed US Special Presidential Envoy for Hostage Affairs Robert O'Brien to be the new National Security Adviser instead of John Bolton. He praised O'Brien's work in the latter’s current position, adding that he will "do a great job" in the new role, APA reports.

"I am pleased to announce that I will name Robert C. O’Brien, currently serving as the very successful Special Presidential Envoy for Hostage Affairs at the State Department, as our new National Security Advisor. I have worked long & hard with Robert. He will do a great job!", Trump twitted.

O'Brien is a seasoned official when it comes to foreign policy issues, serving as US Alternate Representative to the UN General Assembly and represented the US in the GA's Committee working on the Convention on International Terrorism under President George W. Bush. During Trump's tenure, O'Brien was first appointed as Secretary of the Navy in 2017, but was later redirected to serve as Special Presidential Envoy for Hostage Affairs in May 2018.
