John Bolton in Trump Cabinet members actions and issues


On War & Peace: Abrogate the Iran nuclear deal; encourage Israel to attack

Bolton is strongly opposed to the Iran nuclear deal and is a known opponent of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Like Trump, he supported the invasion of Iraq in 2003. "The Middle East peace process has long needed clarity and an injection of reality, and Trump has provided it by making the decision to move the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem," Bolton tweeted after Trump announced the landmark decision to recognize Jerusalem.

He has also been a strong critic of the nuclear accord with Tehran, writing on Twitter that "the Iran nuclear deal was a strategic mistake in 2015. This deal needs to be abrogated and America must craft a new reality that reflects the actions of the Iranian regime."

Bolton also advocated for Israel to attack Iran to rein in its nuclear ambitions: "Time is terribly short, but a strike can still succeed," he wrote in The New York Times in 2015.
