But this framing is built on a distortion that underplays just how risky Trump's evolution really threatens to become.
Tension between Trump and McMaster had grown increasingly public.
Sources close to the situation told Foreign Policy that John Bolton is preparing to "clean house" and remove almost all of the political appointees brought in by his predecessor. What makes this account nearly certainly dead on is the word "feels".
Trump had originally considered choosing Bolton, a Fox News contributor, as his secretary of state. Last summer, he was the target of a far-right attack campaign, as conservative groups and a website tied to former Trump adviser Steve Bannon targeted him as insufficiently supportive of Israel and not tough enough on Iran. There is no particular reason to believe that Trump either favors or opposes that stance.
Bolton served as US Permanent Representative to the United Nations from 2005-2006 and as Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security from 2001-2005. But Trump has not meaningfully articulated why we should pull out of it, because he can't.
Trump and Bolton see eye to eye on a more hawkish foreign policy, especially when it comes to North Korea and Iran, and are equally averse to multilateral diplomacy, whether that means the United Nations or working with the European Union. Whether Kelly and Bolton are able to forge a working relationship will mark an early test for both men's ability to run a well-functioning staff. Trump has no idea whether this is true or not - it isn't - but it persuaded Trump to come close to decertifying, though ultimately the adults prevailed that time. "He has won many battles and his bravery and toughness are legendary", Trump said in a statement.
While Tillerson insisted throughout his tenure that all diplomatic avenues be exhausted with North Korea, Pompeo has spoken of decapitating that country's leadership and offering the president "a range of options" if he decides to choose a more forceful approach. If Trump's planned summit with Kim Jong-Un does not lead quickly to North Korea's nuclear disarmament he has a team that is more ready than his last to contemplate pre-emptive war.
Bolton, known for his walrus moustache, is a fierce North Korea hawk who, in his prolific writings and television commentary, has said that preemptive war would likely be the only way to stop North Korea from obtaining the capability to attack the USA with a nuclear missile.
Another Bolton super PAC ad said "our world is becoming an increasingly unsafe place", citing Iraq, Russia and ISIS, before asking "what's next?"
"What people really should be concerned about is the leak of the talking points that the president's staff gave to him", Bolton contended.
We are about to see the real Donald Trump, unchained, in the foreign-policy arena - flexing his muscles at the world (minus Vladimir Putin).
And that foreign policy vision is formless. His posture was rather that he will magically smash our enemies and aggressively represent our interests overseas effortlessly, without any serious cost, because he's tougher, stronger, and smarter than those elites.
Federal Election Commission records show Bolton's super PAC paid Cambridge Analytica more than $340,000 during the 2014 midterm elections cycle.
