O'Brien had the backing of Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, whose central role shaping the administration's foreign policy will be solidified by the appointment. Trump later wielded that conflict as a cudgel against political rivals George W. Bush and John Bolton, who was recently ousted as his national security adviser. On Tuesday, Trump named five finalists for the job, including O'Brien. Even as tensions escalate, fueled in piece by Trump's win rhetoric, the president has hesitated, paying homage to his marketing campaign pledge to preserve away from navy battle.

"Through hostage negotiation, I got to know him very well myself but also, a lot of people that I respect, rated him as the absolute number one choice. He happens to be right".

There are dangers with the formulation: Too significant incendiary language might perhaps also lead to a strike, whereas a refusal to determine on might perhaps also embolden a rogue regime to test Trump additional.

They relayed that the ex-national security adviser also said the president's decision to invite leaders of the Taliban to Camp David the weekend before the anniversary of 9/11 sent a "terrible signal" and was "disrespectful" to the victims of the terrorist attack because the jihadist group harbored al-Qaeda.

"This is not a figure who is going to in any way threaten the primacy of the president on foreign policy", Rubin told Al Jazeera. "A very sharp negotiator".

While the president made his remarks, O'Brien stood beside him, wondering what the hell he had gotten himself into, and thinking no matter how quickly he was sacked, it couldn't come soon enough. He is not as well known as the previous national security advisors but has a stellar history with the State Department and a long list of qualifications.

He said the cruise missiles had a range of 700 kilometers (435 miles), meaning they could not have been fired from inside Yemen. The government in Baghdad, which is allied with both Iran and the USA , has tried to keep a neutral stance amid the tensions.

The policy differences between Trump and Bolton were no secret, and Trump said the final straw happened when Bolton wanted to apply to "Libya model" to the US handling of North Korea. He also was a State Department official under former Secretary Hillary Clinton.

President Trump on Wednesday made a superb selection to be his new national security adviser.

"He understands the world for the unsafe place it is".

"Robert has been fantastic", Mr Trump said, praising Mr O'Brien's work with hostages. In the most unusual episode, O'Brien was dispatched to United States ally Sweden to attend the trial of USA rapper ASAP Rocky, who was accused of assault.

The rapper, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, was convicted and given a conditional jail sentence, but the Swedes released him after Trump took up his cause on Twitter. He helped secure the release in February of American citizen Danny Burch, who was freed after 18 months in captivity in Yemen. Bolton's departure left Pompeo unchallenged as Trump's closest foreign policy adviser.
