WASHINGTON — As national security adviser John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo jockey for influence amid a variety of pressing international concerns, including Iran, North Korea and Venezuela, there is growing tension between the two men, four people familiar with the matter say.
That tension, sources say, doesn’t stem so much from policy differences as it does from clashes over their personal operating styles.
Multiple sources says that Bolton’s more calculating methods have rubbed Pompeo the wrong way and caused him to feel that Bolton is overstepping the role of national security adviser and infringing on his turf as the country’s top foreign policy official.

It sort of feels too complex and extremely large for me. I am having a look ahead for your subsequent publish, I will attempt to get the grasp of it!
