Donald Trump's new national security adviser Robert O'Brien will warn him not to 'appease' Iran

Earlier this year, Mr Trump sent him to Sweden to monitor the assault court case of American rapper A$AP Rocky, in which the president took a personal interest.
Mr Trump wrote on Twitter: “I have worked long & hard with Robert. He will do a great job!”
Mr O’Brien has given all the credit for hostage releases he worked on to Mr Trump.
He called the president “the greatest hostage negotiator that I know of in the history of the United States.”
Mr O’Brien will become Mr Trump’s fourth national security adviser, and the most senior Mormon in the administration.
His hostage role had been overseen by Mike Pompeo, the US secretary of state, whose power within the administration is growing.
However, Mr O’Brien also has long links to Mr Bolton.
In 2005  President George W. Bush appointed him US Representative to the UN General Assembly. Mr Bolton was UN Ambassador to the UN at the time.
Mr Trump was said to have been attracted to Mr O’Brien’s personal style, which is a contrast to that of Mr Bolton, and to have concluded that he “looked the part” of national security adviser.
US officials indicated the president wanted an adviser who would be less of a public figure, and cause less controversy.
