John Bolton, a former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations who has written for Newsmax Magazine, would be an excellent choice to replace Mike Flynn as President Donald Trump's national security adviser, Sen. Ted Cruz says.
"One person I think would be very, very strong is John Bolton. He's someone who understands the world, he understands the threats of radical Islamic terrorism," the Texas Republican told CNN's Manu Raju on Friday.

Ted trying to be relevant again.
I don’t think I’d be against that if Bolton disavowed any future involvement or consultation with Bush operatives and their ilk.
Ted is spot on. Bolton would be great.
It could be if you had to look at that mustache every day during the briefing.
Bolton worked for the neocons and some of that transferred to him. With that said, he appears to be the most qualified person with the insider knowledge to take on the entrenched shadow government at state.
If he is to be part of the administration it seems to me he would be most effective as the right hand of Tillerson.
Well, we know that Trump has a preference for a certain "type".
For whatever reason he's obviously comfortable among those with military backgrounds.
...and long legs.
Bolton is just too war-happy for my liking. We need someone who doesn’t believe in intervening first and asking questions later.
Unrepentant neocon. Globalist. Wants new cold war, thinks all was fine in middle east with us till Obama. Cheney boy. No thanks until he develops a hard and documented track record of supporting a turn to the Trump foreign policy.
I like Bolton, but he’s been swimming in the MSM swamp a little too long for my taste.
As recently as a year ago, he was saying to defeat ISIS, create a Sunni state.
Still a moron, dancing like a monkey on a stick for his Saudi and Gulf State money masters.
Please not another Obama Admiral or General. Trump is really pushing his luck there. He’s bound to come up snake eyes soon dipping into that pool.
>Ted is spot on. Bolton would be great.
I like Bolton, but he’s too Neo-conish for NSA. I’d like to see him at state in 3 or 4 years once T-Rex has gotten the place under control.
Not necessarily a bad thing.
Especially of the iron curtain is a sandy barrier between civilization and islam.
A month ago according to Breitbart, he was displeased that Assad with Russian air support was able to take Aleppo.
Exactly. This guy was 100% in favor of every war that someone else would have to fight. No Ivy League globalist pr!cks, thank you.
What’s his RINO/Globalist score?
I think everyone would be happy with a sand wall between us and the middle east. They deserve zero access to America. I was speaking of the one Obama started with Russia.
