John Bolton

John Bolton
John Bolton is a neoconservative American attorney, diplomat, and political commentator.

John Bolton was born on November 20, 1948, in the United States. He is a neoconservative American attorney, diplomat, and political commentator, and he has served as the United States ambassador to the United Nations (2005-2006) and as the United States National Security Advisor (2018-2019). Bolton was Assistant Attorney General of the United States under Ronald Reagan and he served in the U.S. State Department as an Assistant Secretary for State and International Organization Affairs from 1989-1993 and returned to public life in the George W. Bush administration as the US Ambassador to the United Nations. He would later return to the federal government as a National Security Advisor for Donald Trump.

Bolton’s neoconservative policy positions have led him to be one of the leading “hawks” in the US foreign policy sphere, advocating for the United States to take an aggressive posture towards its geopolitical rivals and for the use of military force illegal under international law. He has admitted to having “helped plan coups d’état” in countries around the world, a statement made in defense of former President Donald Trump’s attempted coup in the United States on January 6th 2021. Bolton has openly advocated for regime change in Venezuela, Cuba, Iran, and North Korea. He used to serve as a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, from 1997 to 2001 and again from 2010 to 2018. Since 2021 Bolton has been a critic of Donald Trump.
