President Trump Claims To ‘Temper’ John Bolton’s Warmongering Style

But recent developments in Venezuela and Iran don’t indicate much tempering is going on.

President Donald Trump is losing control of his foreign policy, as his hawkish advisers are driving him closer and closer to another regime change war.

However, Trump is standing by these hawks – including national security adviser John Bolton. Bolton has supported every disastrous war of the past three decades, but Trump likes having him around because he said tough things on Fox News or something.

“He has strong views on things but that’s okay. I actually temper John, which is pretty amazing,” Trump said Thursday during an Oval Office press conference. “I’m the one that tempers him. That’s okay. I have different sides. I have John Bolton and other people that are a little more dovish than him. I like John.”

But it doesn’t seem like there is much tempering going on if the situations in Iran and Venezuela are any indicator.

The Mad Mustache is goading Iran into a war that could be as bloody and horrendous as the mess in Iraq, which Trump has frequently called the worst disaster in American history.

Bolton’s demented handiwork is on full display in Venezuela too where the un-elected, illegitimate Juan Guaidó is fomenting a revolution at the behest of foreign powers.

“Juan Guaidó is a character that has been created for this circumstance,” Marco Teruggi, an Argentinian sociologist and leading chronicler of Venezuelan politics, said to The Grayzone. “It’s the logic of a laboratory – Guaidó is like a mixture of several elements that create a character who, in all honesty, oscillates between laughable and worrying.”

Bolton has pushed Guaidó frequently and supported his coup attempt which fizzled out in a day and may have strengthened the disposed socialist Maduro regime.

Trump may believe he can “temper” Bolton, but right now he looks like a fool as his foreign policy collapses. It’s time to boot Bolton and all the neocons from his administration and replace them with ‘America First’ patriots.
