    Former national security adviser John Bolton on Monday said Russian President Vladimir Putin “may not be bluffing” about his plans to move nuclear weapons into neighboring Belarus as Moscow’s war on Ukraine stretches into its second year. Putin’s threat to station the weapons in Belarus has been condemned by the U.S. and NATO — and Ukraine has called the move “nuclear blackmail.” “Well, I think he’s been bluffing when he’s tried to rattle the nuclear saber before. He may not be bluffing here in the sense he may actually move tactical nuclear weapons into Belarus, which is its own separate...

    Since President Trump left office, many of the “trustworthy” media outlets have created a talking point that is now held by a minority, yet noticeable number of Conservative Americans. The belief is “DeSantis is Trump, without the baggage.” If DeSantis chooses to run for president, whether that is in the next election or sometime down the road, his opponents (from both parties) and leftist media will have no shortage of ammunition to create baggage specific to him. 1) As Governor of Florida, DeSantis image as a protector of school children and being “anti-groomer” has gone unchallenged. His press secretary Christina...

    President Joe Biden hasn’t blocked Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi from entering the U.S. to speak at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) meeting in New York City next month. Raisi will attend even after an Iranian military officer was charged this month with trying to assassinate former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. For weeks, Senate Republicans have been calling for President Joe Biden to block Raisi, who the U.S. sanctioned in 2019 for his role in executing children in 2018 and 2019. Earlier this month, The Department of Justice charged an Iranian military officer with trying to hire people...

    Former national security adviser John Bolton called the political philosophy of former President Trump “performance art” as Bolton mulls a potential 2024 presidential bid. Bolton, who served in the Trump administration from 2018 to 2019, told NBC’s Ali Velshi on Saturday that the “fundamental point in politics is philosophy.” “Everything else flows from that. Donald Trump has no philosophy,” Bolton said. “Donald Trump doesn’t think in policy terms. There is no Trumpism. And there is no real succession to Donald Trump.” Bolton said Trump is an outlier in the GOP with no clear vision for the party’s future. “It’s not...

    Former President Trump on Sunday said he turned down a deal to release former U.S. Marine Paul Whelan, who’s been detained by Moscow since 2018, in exchange for Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout during his time in the White House. “I turned down a deal with Russia for a one on one swap of the so-called Merchant of Death for Paul Whelan. I wouldn’t have made the deal for a hundred people in exchange for someone that has killed untold numbers of people with his arms deals,” Trump said on Truth Social.

    Thursday, FNC’s Tucker Carlson was critical of the prisoner swap between the U.S. and Russian governments that gave the United States Brittney Griner in exchange for Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout. Carlson suggested Griner was the beneficiary because Paul Whelan, another American imprisoned in Russia, was a Trump voter. “So, at this point, we can assume the obvious,” Carlson said. “The Biden administration chose Brittney Griner over Paul Whelan. The basketball player over the Marine facing 16 years. There was only room for one in the lifeboat, and the Marine got left behind. Well, why did they make that choice?...

    Former President Donald Trump shot down Russian attempts to trade former Marine Paul Whelan for “Merchant of Death” arms dealer Viktor Bout, former national security adviser John Bolton said Thursday — as Trump ripped his successor for agreeing to send Bout home in exchange for the return of WNBA star Brittney Griner. Bolton recalled in an interview with CBS that he was in the midst of his 17-month tenure at the White House when Whelan was detained on concocted espionage charges in December 2018. “The possibility of a Bout-for-Whelan trade existed back then,” said Bolton, 74, “and it wasn’t made,...

    Former Trump National Security Advisor John Bolton said Tuesday on “CNN This Morning” that the former president’s comments on the Constitution were a “time bomb” for every Republican. Co-host Kaitlan Collins asked, “I’ve seen your response to this, what you’ve been saying about Trump’s calls to terminate the Constitution. Do you think it should be disqualifying for a presidential candidate if they made comments like this?” Bolton said, “Well, of course, it is disqualifying. You know, the president takes an oath of office prescribed by the Constitution itself that says he will to the best of his ability preserve, protect...

    Former national security adviser John Bolton said he will “seriously consider” challenging former President Trump for the GOP’s presidential nomination in 2024 if other GOP candidates don’t step in and stop him from winning again. Bolton said: “We’ve got perhaps a dozen or more potential presidential candidates looking to 2024. I think every one of them, before they declare their candidacy, should say, ‘Donald Trump was wrong. We repudiate him. He doesn’t belong in the Republican Party.’ “And, honestly, if they don’t, there’s one thing that would get me to get into the presidential race, which I looked at in...

    Donald Trump could face a challenge for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination from his own former national security adviser John Bolton, who condemned the ex-president’s call to “terminate” the Constitution on Monday. Bolton said he would “absolutely” consider jumping into the presidential race to prevent Trump from winning the GOP nomination during an appearance on NBC News. He said his potential run would be motivated by Trump’s widely condemned remarks on the U.S. Constitution last week. Trump sparked backlash Friday night when he wrote a Truth Social post ranting about alleged “Massive Fraud” from the Democratic Party he believes was...

Bolling brought up remarks Bolton made in an interview with ABC News back in 2020 after he left the Trump White House. “I think we’re in a weaker position around the world,” Bolton said of Trump’s foreign policy at the time. “I think we have given up leadership in a wide variety of areas.
