Top 7 Reasons Why John Bolton Should Never Be Secretary of State

Bolton Poses a Grave Threat to Liberty

UPDATE: On November 14, rumors began to swirl that John Bolton is the leading candidate to become President Donald Trump‘s Secretary of State. While this list was originally written to dismiss Bolton as a possible presidential candidate, it can just as easily be used to explain why he would be a terrible Secretary of State.

On Thursday, former US Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton is expected to announce whether he intends to run for President. Bolton has never run for elective office before, but he also pondered a run for the Presidency in 2012 before deciding against it. No matter which choice Bolton ends up making, his policies reflect a dangerous precedent for the United States. Here are the top 7 reasons why John Bolton should never be President.

1. He is a champion of failed policies of the past.

Bolton has a long and well-documented relationship with the Republican Establishment, as he served in prominent roles in the administrations of the last three GOP Presidents. In each instance, he represented the fringe neo-conservative elements of the political party, seemingly never finding a conflict in which he did not wish to embroil the United States. Accordingly, Bolton continues to justify the invasion of Iraq, stating that the region is better off now than it was under Saddam Hussein.
