Five "highly qualified people" want Bolton's job: Trump

President Trump says lots of people want to replace John Bolton as National Security Adviser, also saying that sometimes Bolton just wasn't smart.

Rough Cut (no reporter narration)

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.

On being asked about the interview of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's National Security Advisor (NSA) to an Indian media outlet, the Ministry of External Affairs responded that the neighbouring country is using such tactics to divert attention from internal failures. "We've seen reports on interview of senior Pakistani official to an India media outlet and he commented on India's internal matters. As always, this is Pak's efforts to divert attention from domestic failures and mislead its domestic constituents by pulling India into headlines," said Anurag Srivastava, Spokesperson, MEA. He further added, "The official is advised to restrict his advice to his establishment and to not comment on India's domestic policies. His statements are contrary to facts, misleading and fictitious. With regard to the purported message that was referred to, no such message was sent from our side."

Kim Jong-un tears up during massive military parade

[11:05] Dessent-Jackson, Louee North Korean leader Kim Jong-un appeared emotional while speaking at a massive military parade in Pyongyang early on Saturday, marking the 75th anniversary of the Workers’ Party, the country's ruling party. Before shedding a few tears, he thanked volunteers who responded to the recent flooding in the country. Tens of thousands of spectators loudly welcomed the leader as he appeared from a building as the clock struck midnight. It’s unusual for North Korea to hold a military parade in the middle of the night, although such conditions may provide benefits in protecting sensitive information about weapons that were rolled out. This week’s festivities are designed as a major event to glorify Kim Jong-un’s achievements as leader of North Korea. Report by Bassaneseg.
