Sen. Rand Paul Thanks President Trump for Firing Mustachioed Warmonger John Bolton

President Donald Trump fired globalist warmonger John Bolton from his administration earlier today, and supporters of Trump’s “America First” mandate are jubilant as a result – with noninterventionist Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) among those relieved by the President’s decision.

Paul commended Trump in a tweet for finally relieving the disgraced neoconservative of his duties:

Trump also threw some shade at his former national security advisor, mentioning that Bolton’s foreign policy recommendations weren’t taken seriously by other members of the administration throughout his time working for the White House.

“I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House,” Trump explained in a Tweet.

“I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions, as did others in the Administration, and therefore I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning. I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week,” Trump added.

Bolton has been a harsh critic of President Trump’s policy of engagement with the political leaders of Afghanistan, including the Taliban. Trump recently cancelled a planned peace summit in America over the weekend with Afghani leaders, the mere idea of which enraged neocons like Bolton.

Although the peace process in Afghanistan has hit a roadblock, Bolton’s ouster from the administration shows that Trump will be more likely to pursue peace there and in the rest of the Middle East.

Trump has acknowledged the existence of a military-industrial complex, which he believes has been holding back his preferred foreign policy of peace throughout the world from taking shape.

“We have tremendous power economically. If I can solve things economically, that’s the way I want to do it,” Trump said during an interview with Fox News in May.

“I’m the one that talks about these wars that are 19 years and people are just there, and don’t kid yourself, we do have a military-industrial complex. They do like war!” Trump exclaimed, reiterating a popular talking point that he used on the campaign trail before he was sworn in as President.

“You have people here in Washington, they never want to leave!” Trump added.

There will be one less person in Washington D.C. who never wants to leave the Middle East now that Bolton has been sent packing. Trump would be wise to replace him with an individual who actually has a sane and credible record on matters of war and peace.
