Former National Security Advisor and neoconservative Iraq War proponent John Bolton showed his true colors Monday, bashing President Trump’s historic negotiations with North Korea in pursuit of denuclearization. Bolton was giving at talk at the neocon Center for Strategic and International Studies.
Bolton was fired as National Security Advisor by President Trump last month. He’s already making a speaking tour condemning the President’s America First foreign policy vision, a development that causes many to question why the unrepentant pro-war advocate was ever hired to work in the White House to begin with.
Bolton took the opportunity to slam President Trump’s initiative to hold at least one historic ‘summit’ with the Supreme Leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un. He went on the record stating that he believed any form of negotiation would be a hopeless effort in seeking to convince North Korea to drop its nuclear program.
The former UN ambassador and Bush administration official instead prefers a strategy of regime change, either through military force or through other means. Another Korean War has the chance to devastate millions of lives. But if Bolton had any capacity to reconsider his hawkish views, he’d have done so years ago, when it became clear that the Iraq War was one of the greatest foreign policy failures in American history.
President Trump’s negotiations with the North Koreans have resulted in a slight thawing between the United States and the cult-of-personality dictatorship. The President has thus far declined to remove crippling sanctions placed upon North Korea, instead waiting to see a concrete commitment to denuclearization carried out by the nation’s regime.
As President Trump continues taking measures to end the decades-long Korean War stalemate with a diplomatic conclusion, Bolton is set to become a regular among D.C’s well-funded neoconservative foreign policy think tanks.
NEW: Joe Biden Bashes Incoming Trump Administration In Leaked 2016 Call to President of Ukraine
Joe Biden speaks in critical and partisan terms of the incoming Trump administration in a new leaked call to the President of Ukraine unveiled Wednesday.
In the call, conducted in November 2016 a week after then-candidate Trump’s election victory, Biden bashes the incoming administration to the foreign leader, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Biden assails the Trump transition team as incompetent, turning down the idea of visiting the country before the January transition before Trump is “fully briefed” on matters related to Ukraine.
In a second call, Biden asks for Poroshenko to describe his conversations with incoming President Trump, going to to speak of Trump in more dismissive terms. He describes Trump as a “dog who caught the car, and who doesn’t know what to do.” Not quite a “dog-faced pony soldier,” but definitely not an appropriate way for an outgoing vice president to describe an incoming president to a foreign leader.
A Ukrainian comedian originally released the calls, suggesting questionable operational security within the conversations of Joe Biden and Poroshenko. Biden has a lengthy history of ethical questions regarding his relationship with Ukraine, including looking the other way as his son Hunter secured an extremely lucrative position at a Ukrainian oil company without any experience whatsoever in the energy industry.
Biden himself would later go on to demand the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating corruption allegations against the younger Biden, a clear conflict of interest Biden merely dismissed when he spoke openly of securing the prosecutor’s firing at a Council on Foreign Relations public event.
This is a totally inappropriate way for a Vice President to speak to a foreign leader, and the public should be concerned about how Biden plans to conduct diplomacy should he be elected President.
