Trump jokes about being jealous of Bolton

President Trump on Monday joked that new national security adviser John Bolton could lose his job if he receives “all the credit” for last week’s airstrikes on Syria.

Trump acknowledged Bolton, who was standing along the wall of a gym near Miami where the president was participating in a tax event. The crowd gave Bolton a raucous standing ovation.

“John, that’s pretty good. I didn’t expect that. I’m a little jealous,” Trump quipped. “Are you giving him all the credit? Uh oh, you know that means the end of his job.”
....................
The president is said to chafe when his aides receive what he feels is outsized attention.

Trump was reportedly angered by a Time magazine cover that dubbed his former chief strategist Stephen Bannon as “the great manipulator.”

Those aren't jokes or quips - that's how he really feels.
I agree, LaRump DOESN'T share the limelight and I can't see Bolton not wanting the credit.

I think the poll would be better if we guess who wouldn't be thrown under the bus during the week.

OK, I have trouble telling the difference betwen "under the bus" and "Transisition" :blackeye:
Top cyber official to leave White House
A top White House cybersecurity official is leaving the National Security Council and returning to the National Security Agency, the latest in a string of departures from the White House national security team.

President Trump’s cybersecurity coordinator Rob Joyce is a detailee from the NSA and is returning to the agency rather than continuing in his post at the White House, according to a source familiar with the situation.
...................
News of Joyce’s expected departure comes as new national security adviser John Bolton is seeking to reshape his team. Joyce's boss, Tom Bossert, resigned last week as White House homeland security adviser amid the reshuffle. Joyce was tapped to fill Bossert's position in an acting capacity.

It was Bossert who, 13 months ago, announced that Joyce would join the NSC as cybersecurity coordinator. Joyce previously led an elite NSA hacking group called the Tailored Access Operations (TAO) unit.

Joyce’s departure will leave a void in one of the top cybersecurity roles in the administration. Joyce was among top U.S. and British officials who earlier Monday blamed Russian-backed hackers of conducting cyberattacks on internet infrastructure across the globe in an apparent spy campaign targeting government, critical infrastructure and private businesses.

ETA:
US, UK blame Russia for coordinated cyberattacks on internet devices worldwide
..............
White House cybersecurity coordinator Rob Joyce said that the hackers were likely conducting the attacks for spying purposes or intellectual property theft, but said the access could also be used to facilitate future offensive activity.

“When we see malicious cyber activity, whether it be from the Kremlin or other nation-state actors, we are going to push back,” Joyce told reporters Monday.
.................
Joyce said Monday that the Trump administration is prepared to use all elements of national power, including “offensive” capabilities, to push back on Russian attacks.
.........
Joyce said that the attacks point to the broader vulnerability of the growing ecosystem of Internet-connected devices, often called the "internet of things," and the need for companies to take security into account when developing cutting-edge technologies.

“This means building devices from the ground up to be secure by design,” Joyce said.

I can't find it confirmed in any news source, which I suppose means either it hasn't been released yet or that Kelly talked her into staying?

The new official spin.

http://www.newsobserver.com/news/state/ ... 76814.html
Haley's remark had an immediate impact. Kudlow apologized for what he said, but new sanctions against Russia don't appear to be any closer to being enforced.

“She was certainly not confused. I was wrong to say that — totally wrong,” Kudlow told The New York Times, saying he called Haley and apologized. “As it turns out, she was basically following what she thought was policy. The policy was changed and she wasn’t told about it, so she was in a box.”

The issue began when Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, appeared on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday, saying Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin was going to announce additional sanctions that would target “any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to (Syria) and chemical weapons use," according to thehill.com.

But the Washington Post reported President Donald Trump conferred with his national security advisers later Sunday and told them he was upset the sanctions were being officially rolled out because he was not yet comfortable executing them.

Don't rain on my parade.

I was really hoping this one would be true; but as there is still no verification, I'm thinking it's not.

I think it's quite possible that it is true: she "discussed her resignation with Kelly." It doesn't mean she resigned.

Instead of going under the bus, Haley may stomp out with something akin to dignity and maybe run for President in 2020.

Haley sets a red line for Trump
The U.N. ambassador made crystal clear after initially being blamed for 'confusion' on Russia sanctions that she will not tolerate public humiliation quietly.

By ELIANA JOHNSON and BURGESS EVERETT 04/18/2018 06:10 PM EDT

In the span of 24 hours, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley has done what none of her colleagues in President Donald Trump’s Cabinet have before: successfully telegraphed to her boss that she will not quietly suffer his public humiliations.

Haley was initially blamed by White House aides for creating confusion by speaking on national television about the administration’s plans to roll out new sanctions against Russia that the president ultimately decided to defer.

But within hours of White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow’s statement Tuesday that Haley had fallen prey to “momentary confusion” and gotten “out ahead of the curve,” she’d exacted a public apology from her colleague. But that alone wasn’t enough for the former South Carolina governor, who issued a direct statement to make her point crystal clear: “With all due respect, I don’t get confused.”

The incident met with silence from the president and his loyalists but has only helped to burnish Haley’s image outside the White House.

“She’s been a very forceful advocate and I would hope the administration really values that. She stood up for herself admirably, so hopefully that will end the story there,” said Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) on Wednesday.
