MSNBC National Security Analyst Jeremy Bash said Friday that President Donald Trump is assembling a “war cabinet” to fight China, North Korea and Robert Mueller.
“I think the president is assembling a war cabinet,” Bash said on “Morning Joe.” “To take a war to Bob Mueller he’s got Joe DiGenova. To take a trade war to China he’s got Larry Kudlow and now to actually have a real war he’s got John Bolton and the only question is will we find ourselves in a military conflict vis-a-vis North Korea or Iran or both.”
“John Bolton’s rhetoric has been very clear,” Bash continued. “He believes the Iran deal should be torn up. That we should engage in military action in the Middle East. And his view … is that we have the legal authority and the military necessity of launching preemptive military strike against the North Korean regime.”
“Morning Joe” regular John Heilemann said Trump is getting consistency and toughness out of Bolton and doesn’t expect action over diplomacy.
“One thing about John Bolton is he’s been consistent for a long time,” Heilemann concluded. “You know what you’re getting from him. You know what kind of advocacy you’re going to get from him. It’s going to be unrestrained. It’s going to interventionist. It’s going to be undiplomatic.”
