John Bolton has never met a military conflict he didn’t want to get involved in. He advocates a foreign policy that exaggerates threats, belittles diplomacy, shows contempt for international institutions and is quick to use violence. He was a key instigator of the Iraq war and has no regrets, and now he is hell-bent on destroying diplomacy with North Korea and going to war in both Iran and Venezuela.
Bolton is in bed with the Iranian terrorist organization the MEK and has been advocating for years that the U.S. should bomb Iran. Now he is using propaganda and outright lies to try to make that happen. He hates the United Nations and International law, opposes Palestinian rights and freedoms, and, along with Elliot Abrams, is trying to orchestrate a coup in Venezuela.
Trump has been complaining that the coup in Venezuela isn’t turning out to be as easy as Bolton said it would be. Despite multiple coup attempts, Maduro remains in power. And in Iran, Bolton is trying to push Trump into a war that he says he doesn’t want.
Donald Trump is well known for firing people, and no one is more ripe to be pink-slipped than Warhawk John Bolton. Add your name to our statement below to #FireBolton and we will deliver the signatures to the White House.
Statement of the People Calling on Trump to Fire Bolton
As citizens of the United States, we the people are tired of bloated Pentagon budgets and endless wars.
Trump campaigned on a platform of bringing troops home, not creating more wars based on fake evidence and outright lies. But here we are on the brink of new wars in Venezuela and Iran, talks with North Korea have broken down, and the war in Yemen rages on.
Trump is correct about National Security Advisor John Bolton misleading him into thinking it would be easy to replace President Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela with puppet Juan Guiado. The coup attempts continue to put the Venezuelan people at risk of a bloody civil war.
Bolton played a key role in the collapse of Trump’s summit with Kim Jong-Un in February and now, with the help of the media, he is running a propaganda campaign of lies about Iran similar to what led us into war with Iraq. Both Trump and the American people have been clear about having no appetite for another destructive, senseless war, but Bolton has other ideas.
Bolton’s position in Trump’s cabinet is contrary to Trump’s campaign promises to bring troops home and to have a less interventionist approach than his predecessors. For the sake of the people of Venezuela, Iran, Yemen, Korea, America, and the entire world, we call on President Trump to FIRE BOLTON!
