ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE — Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump told re­porters Tues­day he’s con­sid­er­ing five peo­ple to re­place ousted Na­tional Se­cu­rity Ad­viser John Bolton.

Trump says his short­list for the crit­i­cal post is made up of Robert O’Brien, Ric Wad­dell, Lisa Gor­don-Hagerty, Fred Fleitz and Keith Kel­logg. Press sec­re­tary Stephanie Gr­isham later clar­i­fied to re­porters that Trump was still con­sid­er­ing other can­di­dates for the post.

O’Brien is the spe­cial pres­i­den­tial en­voy for hostage af­fairs. Wad­dell served as Trump’s deputy na­tional se­cu­rity ad­viser. Fleitz served as ex­ec­u­tive sec­re­tary of the NSC last year. Gor­don-Hagerty is the En­ergy Depart­ment’s un­der­sec­re­tary for nu­clear se­cu­rity. And Kel­logg is the na­tional se­cu­rity ad­viser to Vice Pres­i­dent Mike Pence.
