"Throughout my career, it has been my greatest privilege to serve alongside extraordinary service members and dedicated civilians". Bolton has been completely opposed to nuclear proliferation of the Iranian state for years, dating back to his time in the George W.

Echoing Condoleezza Rice's "mushroom cloud" argument in the lead-up to the Iraq war, Boltonargued that "Given the gaps in USA intelligence about North Korea, we should not wait until the very last minute".
Democratic senator Bernie Sanders describes Mr Bolton as "too extreme to be confirmed as United Nations ambassador in 2005 and is absolutely the wrong person to be national security adviser now". Trump is proud of the diplomatic pressure campaign he thinks forced Kim to invite him to a nuclear summit.

He preferred his near daily briefings with his Central Intelligence Agency director Mike Pompeo, whose gung ho attitude towards Iran rhymed with his own, and enjoyed watching Bolton fulminating on Fox News.
