Trump’s New National Security Adviser Is…Mohammed Bin Salman? | Vanity Fair

With John Bolton handed his walking papers, the title of White House national security adviser technically belongs to Charles Kupperman, who is holding down the fort until Donald Trump finds a new whipping boy. But at the moment, it’s not exactly clear whose hand is guiding Trump’s when it comes to foreign policy, particularly following a series of drone strikes on Saudi Arabian oil facilities, which the Trump administration has blamed on Iran. According to his Twitter account, Trump is waiting on the Saudis to tell him what to do. “Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked,” the president tweeted on Sunday evening. “There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!”

Bolton is surely going out of his mind, watching his old boss outsource the powers of the presidency to Mohammed bin Salman
