Bobby Ghosh: ‘John Bolton Has Never Met a War He Didn’t Like’

‘It’s a question of who is Donald Trump listening to’

GHOSH: "It’s not a question of who remains in the cabinet. It’s a question of who is Donald Trump listening to. It’s not clear he’s listening to anyone. John Bolton, his position in Iran is well known. He finds himself serving a president who is essentially ceding territory. It can’t sitcom fortable with John Bolton that his president is walking away from a fight. John Bolton has never met a war he didn’t like. Here he finds himself in a situation where he has a president who wants to walk away from a war and leave the field to a country, Iran, that Bolton loathes with every fiber of his being. It’s not a question of who thinks what in the cabinet. Any given day, any given hour, it’s about how the president of the United States feels."
