"It is perfectly legitimate for the United States to respond to the current 'necessity' posed by North Korea's nuclear weapons by striking first."
-- John Bolton, President Trump’s newest National Security pick
On Monday, John Bolton's appointment as National Security Advisor became official.
Bolton has publicly advocated launching first strikes on North Korea and Iran. With Trump’s obvious desire to do anything to distract from the Mueller investigation, this is not the voice we need counseling him on national security. He’s a danger to American safety, and he must go.
Bolton has been a war hawk throughout the entirety of his career in international diplomacy and security. In his time in the Bush Administration, he distorted intelligence about WMDs and defended the invasion of Iraq -- and to this day, he claims that it was a “grave mistake” for our troops to withdraw.
Now, with the crisis in Syria worsening, will Bolton lead us into a yet another disastrous war?
We can’t afford to charge full speed ahead into war. Stand with Team Jason and millions of Americans who oppose John Bolton’s appointment.
Thanks for your support.
