Action: Condemn the Appointment of John Bolton as National Security Adviser (NSA)

John Bolton will soon be the second-most dangerous American according to George Will in the Washington Post (3/23/2018). As the new National Security Adviser, John Bolton will be advising President Trump, the most dangerous man in America. Bolton will play a key role in the negotiations with North Korea concerning their nuclear weapons program, but Bolton does not believe that the negotiations will succeed. Instead, he has been an advocate for bombing North Korea to prevent the country from threatening the United States with nuclear weapons later. Bolton’s extreme views will increase the risk of a military confrontation with North Korea. The combination of Trump’s impulsive behavior and Bolton’s warmongering may be a recipe for disaster.
