Report: Donald Trump close to naming John Bolton Secretary of State
It is now being reported in several places that Donald Trump is leaning towards naming John Bolton as his Secretary of State. It is also being reported that Newt Gingrich is out of the running. Here is how the Huffington Post is reporting the unconfirmed story:
President-elect Donald Trump is leaning toward naming as secretary of state John Bolton, a bellicose enemy of Russia and Iran who is among the most hawkish members of the Republican foreign policy community, according to two sources familiar with Trump’s thinking.
Bolton is the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, but served less than two years, as Democrats banded together to block his long-term appointment. His time was marked by a rapid uptick in anti-American sentiment among the global diplomatic community. Bolton remains one of the most disliked foreign policy operators on the world stage.
That’s odd! During the campaign the left claimed that Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin were working together to take down Hillary Clinton so how can this be? Oh yeah, the left had no proof of this claim, they simply made it up for political gain.
During the election the left accused Donald Trump of being too close to Russia and now they are claiming he is basically trying to antagonize Russia. They cannot have it both ways but they are trying hard. The left-wing media has become unhinged at the unexpected loss and they are losing credibility–that is if they had any left after being so wrong (purposely) during the campaign.
