Trump has just announced his replacement for former National Security Advisor John Bolton:
I am pleased to announce that I will name Robert C. O’Brien, currently serving as the very successful Special Presidential Envoy for Hostage Affairs at the State Department, as our new National Security Advisor. I have worked long & hard with Robert. He will do a great job!

O’Brien was recently sent to Sweden, in his capacity as Special Presidential Envoy for Hostage Affairs at the State Department, to try and get the assault allegations against ASAP Rocky dropped.
He interviewed for the job last week.
He also reportedly worked for/with Mitt Romney at some point. And apparently Richard Grenell likes him a lot:
