July 10, 2017

Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton on President Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the fight against ISIS.

“After bringing up the Russian meddling at the beginning of the meeting,Trump got to experience Vladimir Putin looking him in the eye and lying to him directly.”

“I do think Donald Trump is a strong personality, has strong views, he’s got a strong resolve which makes him the polar opposite of Barack Obama.”

“I think that what extending the Baghdad government’s control over western Iraq does is just lay the ground work for another uprising by the Sunnis.”


Ambassador John Bolton, a diplomat and a lawyer, has spent many years in public service. He served as the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations in 2005-2006. He was Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security from 2001 to 2005. In the Reagan Administration, he was an Assistant Attorney General.
