Rand Paul on John Bolton’s Firing: ‘The Chances of a War Worldwide Go Greatly Down’

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is celebrating the firing of President Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser John Bolton, noting that ‘the chances of a war worldwide go greatly down.”

Senator Paul asserted that Bolton was “working against Trump” and that “Bolton’s probably the leading advocate for regime change everywhere.”

“Bolton’s probably the leading advocate for regime change everywhere,” Paul told Fox News. “He’s got the naïve worldview that believes that we should recreate the world in our image by toppling countries through violent overthrow and that somehow democracy will prevail.

“And I think when we’ve done it in the Middle East, often the governments that come into place after the authoritarian is removed end up being as bad or worse as the government we saw in place before.”

Senator Paul also commended the president on Twitter for giving the hawkish neocon the boot.

“I commend @realDonaldTrump for this necessary action,” he said. “The President has great instincts on foreign policy and ending our endless wars. He should be served by those who share those views.”
