Jeff Brody

Charles Kupperman, deputy national security adviser, has been named interim national security adviser to President Trump, the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday. A spokeswoman for the White House said Kupperman will succeed John Bolton, who resigned from the national security adviser post due to disagreements with the president over foreign policies, including peace talks in Afghanistan.

Trump said in a tweet Tuesday he will appoint a new national security adviser next week. Kupperman assumed his current role in January.

He has over four decades of national security experience and held various advisory and executive positions during the Reagan administration. Previously, he served as vice president of business development at Boeing and Washington space operations VP at Lockheed Martin.
