BROADCAST AND DIGITAL RESTRICTIONS~** U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he was considering five "very highly qualified" people to replace John Bolton as his national security adviser.
Speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump said Bolton, who he abruptly fired on Tuesday, had made some mistakes, including offending North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un by demanding that he follow a "Libyan model" and hand over all his nuclear weapons.
Trump said many people were interested in Bolton's position.
"There are five people that I consider very highly qualified," he said, without naming them.
"We'll be announcing somebody next week, but we have some very highly qualified people." He said he got along well with Bolton and hoped they parted on good terms, but added that the former adviser was out of line on Venezuela, which has been another of the administration's top foreign policy challenges.
While the two were mostly in sync on the need to push Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro from power, Trump had become increasingly impatient at the failure of a U.S.-led campaign of sanctions and diplomacy to remove the socialist leader.
Trump declined to comment on whether he would meet with Maduro.
