Ambassador John Bolton was on The Factor tonight to discuss Barack Obama’s curious foreign policy. The former UN ambassador told Bill O’Reilly that Obama is actively trying to diminish the power of this nation.
Bill O’Reilly: Do you, John Bolton, believe that the president of the United States is actively trying to diminish the power of this nation?
Ambassador John Bolton: Yes, how else do you explain his defense budget?
Bill O’Reilly: Why is he trying to hurt the nation? If he diminishes our power we are weaker. Why does he want to make us weaker?
Ambassador John Bolton: Well, as I think I said before, in his view a weaker America is a less provocative America and therefore will contribute to international peace and security. I think it’s the opposite. I believe a weaker America invites challenge.
Bill O’Reilly: So you really believe he wants to weaken this nation and in doing that we will be safer?
Ambassador John Bolton: That is his view. I believe that is correct and I believe that is the predominant view in academia in America today.
