White House

John Bolton as National Security Adviser

All his critics call him a neo-con, but he’s a hard-headed realist. The Twitter and cable-TV mob is saying he’s a Fox News analyst, as if that were the sum total of what he’s about, when, of course, he has extensive diplomatic and governmental experience. He is shrewd, knowledgeable, and always speaks his mind. He shares most of President Trump’s instincts, while knowing how government works and having a philosophical true North. He will serve this most difficult White House well.
