John Bolton For Sec of State?
Media is abuzz over speculation over who president- elect Trump will choose for his cabinet positions. John Bolton's name came to the forefront yesterday as a possible appointment to Secretary of State. Let's hope not. I understand he has a long history of supporting just about any U.S. military intervention. Senator Rand Paul seems to agree.
No way of knowing why people voted for Trump, but I would think at least a fair amount of them did so in hopes of a less aggressive foreign policy. John Bolton is not the man for that. Appointment of John Bolton to Secretary of State would not only be a betrayal of voters, but a strong sign that nothing will change despite a Trump presidency.
Reason magazine also covered Rand Paul's feelings about Bolton.
