VideoCast: How Dangerous is John Bolton in a Trump White House?

I join TRT World’s The Nexus to discuss the entry of John Bolton — “a man who never met a confrontation he didn’t like” — into the Trump Administration as National Security Advisor.

The program consider Bolton’s background as a loud voice, then and now, for the 2003 Iraq War and his advocacy of military action against North Korea and Iran. Then there is the overriding question: what will a combination of an unstable Donald Trump and a hawkish National Security Advisor mean? Are there any adults left in the White House playground?

The other panelists are Will Fischer, Director of Government Relations for VoteVets, and Greg Swenson of Republicans Abroad UK.
