1. Wide, reporter asking question about John Bolton
2. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, U.S. President:
"So, John is somebody that I actually get along with very well. He made some very big mistakes when he talked about the Libyan model for Kim Jong Un. That was not a good statement to make. You just take a look at what happened with (Muammar) Gaddafi. That was not a good statement to make and it set us back and frankly he wanted to do things, not necessarily tougher than me, you know John's known as a tough guy. He's so tough he got us into Iraq. That's tough. And but he's somebody that I actually had a very good relationship with but he wasn't getting along with people in the administration that I consider very important. And I hope we we've left in good stead but maybe we have, maybe we haven't. I have to run the country the way we're running the country we're doing very well we're respected all over the world again."

"(Reporter: Who are your top picks to replace him?)
Well, I have five people that want it very much. I mean, a lot more than that would like to have it. But there are five people that I consider very highly qualified, good people I've gotten to know over the last three years and we'll be announcing somebody next week. But we have some very highly qualified people. But we were setback very badly when John Bolton talked about the Libyan model and he made a mistake. And as soon as he mentioned that the Libyan model, what a disaster. Take a look at what happened to Gaddafi with the Libya model and he's using that to make a deal with North Korea? And I don't blame Kim Jong Un for what he said after that. And he wanted nothing to do with John Bolton. And that's not a question of being tough, that's a question of being not smart to say something like that. So, I wish John the best. We actually got along very well. I'm sure he'll you know do whatever he can do to, you know, what spin it his way. John came to see me the night before in fact I think a lot of you people were out there waiting for me to get on the helicopter. I'm sure you have a shot somewhere along the line and he sat right in that chair and I told him John if too many people you're not getting along with people and a lot of us, including me, disagree with some of your tactics and some of your ideas and I wish you well but I'd like you to submit your resignation and he did that and I really I know he's going to do well, I hope he's going to do well and I wish him well."
