John Bolton accepted the congratulations for his appointment as Nat’l Security Adviser to President Trump, and was asked if he still stood by his positions on Russia now that he’s…
President Trump’s incoming National Security Adviser, John Bolton, made an appearance in an interview with Fox News, in which, after accepting congratulations and an endorsement of his predecessor, he answered a few questions. [[WATCH VIDEO BELOW]]
The first was related to the non-scandal of President Trump recognizing that Vladimir Putin is the leader of a major global player and will be for another six years and having the good sense to treat him with the respect that position deserves. It’s something Democrats only understood as it pertained to the impostor Hussein Obama and which they have chosen as yet another vehicle for attacks against the President.
Bolton is asked, “Is there any scandal in the President ignoring the advice he gets and doing what he wants to do?” Bolton replies, “No, that’s why he got elected, you know. It’s not the function of political officials whether it’s the President or his nominees across the executive branch to do what their subordinates tell them to do.”
He points out, “If that were the rule then you could just have a bunch of GS15s running the entire government. A President’s entitled to do what he wants to do, that’s what the Constitution says, the executive power resides in the President. And if he wants to say congratulations to Vladimir Putin, number one, I don’t see anything particularly significant about it one way or another.”
Bolton says, “It’s a courtesy, he had other subjects he wanted to bring up.” He notes “You say things to be courteous in diplomatic context. What I think was outrageous was the leak of the notes. And I just think that this is the kind of disservice that some people [H.R. McMaster?] think that they’re called upon to do.”
He says, “It’s not for them to put in jeopardy the other 300 plus million American citizens just because they think their morality is better than everybody else’s.
Bolton is asked if he’s going to press President Trump to go harder on Russia or if he’s okay with the overtures that he’s made from time to time. Bolton says he won’t be commenting on what he said before as a private citizen because it really doesn’t matter going forward. “It’s what the President decides based upon all of his advisers recommend and what he decides.”
