Jennifer Rubin then: ‘If not Bolton himself, someone very much like him would be ideal in the No. 2 spot at State.’
John Bolton not only shares the president’s views on many foreign policy issues, he has decades of experience in government, politics, and American leadership.
To Americans tired of military campaigns to social engineer governments in distant lands, Donald Trump suggested he might embrace a less belligerent foreign policy. That’s not happening.
You may have never heard of Robert Kagan or Max Boot, but they are hugely influential to the people you vote for.
Speakers from both parties, including early and vociferous opponents of President Trump, trashed the deal while urging the president to take a harder line on Iran.
