Trump Fires Neocon John Bolton


John Bolton somehow survived failure after failure in Washington. Did John Bolton ever get anything correct?

The guy was literally the architect of some of America’s biggest foreign policy blunders – Look Obama made it worse but it was Boltin and Bush who started that stupid war.

When Trump brought on Bolton it was widely assumed he brought him on to get a more hawkish opinion in his cabinet.


Trump ran on not being a stupid neocon but adapted and probably realized having that guy around may give him a negotiating advantage.

With Trump representing peace as the carrot and Bolton the warmonger as the stick.

Who knows why Trump brought him in but we could tell the relationship had soured as Trump continues to follow through on one his main campaign promises – end our stupid wars.

Bolton was a bureaucrat skilled in the art of leaking and often tried to make his case in the press.

So it was a matter of time before Trump sent him packing and believe me this is a good move.

Trump tweeted:

“I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House. I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions, as did others in the Administration, and therefore….

….I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning. I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week.”
