A former member of the George W. Bush administration has called John Bolton, the former US Ambassador to the UN and rumored replacement for National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster, a "dangerous man."
Richard Painter said that Bolton's potential appointment to security advisor role was "an invitation to to war, perhaps nuclear war" and "must be stopped at all costs."
Bolton is known for his hawkish views on the Iraq War and on Iran.
Richard Painter, the former chief White House ethics lawyer in the George W. Bush administration, blasted the prospect of former US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton replacing General H. R. McMaster as President Donald Trump's National Security Advisor.
"John Bolton was by far the most dangerous man we had in the entire eight years of the Bush Administration," Painter tweeted on Friday. "Hiring him as the president's top national security advisor is an invitation to war, perhaps nuclear war."
Painter ended his post with a blunt and stark sentence: "this must be stopped at all costs." He also linked to an article in the Atlantic titled "Hiring John Bolton Would Be a Betrayal of Donald Trump's Base."
