    Question Pompeo called to White House after meeting with Bolton, Haley canceled

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was called to the White House on Friday after a scheduled meeting with national security adviser John Bolton and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley was abruptly canceled, a State Department official said.
    The official told The Hill that Pompeo had been asked to meet with President Trump, though the nature of that meeting was not immediately clear.

    The meeting between Pompeo and Trump comes days after North Korea threatened to back out of a June 12 summit with the U.S. president if Washington insisted on "unilateral nuclear abandonment."

    Pompeo has been a key player in the Trump administration's efforts to set up the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. He traveled secretly to Pyongyang in April, and once again earlier this month, during which he secured the release of three American prisoners from the isolated country.
    The meeting between Trump and Pompeo also comes days before the nation's chief diplomat is expected to deliver a speech at the conservative Heritage Foundation laying out a plan for reining in Iran's nuclear ambitions on other activities.
    The speech follows Trump's announcement earlier this month that he would withdraw the U.S. from the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, which sought to curb Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief

    Bolton forgot ALL about the NPT (Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty), as the moron he truly IS.

    As stated elsewhere:

    Using these kinda terms about a key cabinet member could put big question mark about judgment of POTUS, is that what we really want ahead of midterms?
    That was one of the reasons GOP voters base was not thrilled with last SoS Tillerson and his allegedd M-word comments provided unnecessary ammo to liberal media.
