Cruz: John Bolton ‘Would Be a Terrific Choice’ for National Security Adviser

‘One person I think would be very, very strong is John Bolton’


CRUZ: “One person I think would be very, very strong is John Bolton. He is very well known on the hill. Republicans and Democrats know John Bolton well. He understands the world. He understands the threats of radical Islamic terrorism. He understands the threats of an overaggressive Putin. And at the same time I think he has demonstrated an understanding that we should be reluctant to use military force. We should do only when absolutely necessary. So I think there are lots of good people being considered. Someone like John Bolton would be a terrific choice.”
