President Donald Trump is growing tired with his national security adviser John Bolton, and he is goading Bolton frequently regarding the mustachioed neocon’s lust for endless war.
Trump has been teasing Bolton for his hawkish beliefs for quite some time while conducting business inside the White House. According to reports, Trump said to Bolton in the White House Situation Room last year: “Ok, John, let me guess, you want to nuke them all?”
Trump has even taken Bolton to task in front of foreign dignitaries, showing a marked lack of respect for the neoconservative who served in the administration of globalist former President George W. Bush.
The President dressed down Bolton during a meeting in the Oval Office with Irish prime minister Leo Varadkar. Trump quipped to Bolton: “John, is Ireland one of those countries you want to invade?”
Administration officials have told The Independent that Trump frequently laments that “John has never seen a war he doesn’t like” while speaking about foreign affairs. He has made similar comments about Bolton publicly.
“If it was up to him he’d take on the whole world at one time, okay?” Trump said during an appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press.
But still, Trump is keeping Bolton around in the administration because he reportedly believes that Bolton serves a purpose by playing “bad cop” to Trump’s “good cop” in diplomatic matters.
“He thinks that Bolton’s bellicosity and eagerness to kill people is a bargaining chip when he’s sitting down with foreign leaders,” one government official told The Independent. “Bolton can be the bad cop and Trump can be the good cop. Trump believes this to his core.”
The Iranian government is singling out Bolton for allegedly attempting to draw the U.S. into another war:

Only prudence and foresight can thwart such ploys.

Trump is deploying Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) as an intermediary to keep the peace with Iran. Unable to trust his own advisers, Trump is enlisting the non-interventionist to clean up the mess of Bolton and other neocons within the administration.
“Rand is a friend of mine, and Rand asked me if he could get involved. The answer is yes, and if the other senators ask me to get involved, I’d probably say yes depending on who they were,” Trump said to reporters last week. “I have many people involved, and Iran is going to work out very nicely. “
Bolton may want to draw the U.S. into a war with Iran, but Trump is not going to make it easy for the bloodthirsty bureaucrat to achieve his ambitions. The President knows that he was elected to put ‘America First,’ and has frequently called the Iraq war the biggest mistake in U.S. history. He does not want to repeat the mistakes of his globalist predecessors in Iran.
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.
