Graham on Bolton Resignation

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on the news that National Security Advisor John Bolton has resigned.

“I have known John Bolton for many years and very much appreciate his service to our country in a variety of positions. John understands the world for what it is and the dangers that threaten America’s national security interests.

“As National Security Advisor to President Trump, I found him to be accessible and always pursuing an agenda that not only helps the President but makes America safe.

“President Trump, like every other president, has the right to a National Security Advisor of his own choosing. I hope the president will choose someone with a strong background in national security and a world view that there is no substitute for American power when it comes to world order and that strength is better than weakness.”
