Considerations and appointees for Secretary of State in President elect Trump’s new administration:
Rumors were flying through the news networks that President-elect Trump was considering John Bolton for Secretary of State. It’s been noted in some circles that John Bolton’s bellicose reputation as an enemy to Russia and Iran was substantive information for President-elect Trump to take into consideration.
John Bolton has quite an impressive career and resume. Bolton served as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations from August 2005 until December 2006. His resignation came early as a result of an unlikely loss for his confirmation in the Senate which was then controlled by the Democratic Party.
His knowledge on foreign policy comes from multiple levels and experience. Currently he is senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), Senior advisor for Freedom Capital Investment Management, a Fox News Channel commentator, and counsel to the Washington, D.C. law firm Kirkland & Ellis. He was a foreign policy adviser to 2012 for presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
Huffington Post’s review didn’t spare the adjectives to describe Bolton’s reputation. But then again Huffington Post never shed a wonderful glowing review of President-elect Trump. With most of mainstream media practically ruining their reputations based on the stubborn sense of supporting and trying to elect Hillary Clinton and her criminal enterprise as Commander-in-Chief, not to mention those deadly foreign policy decisions turned into disasters. Everything we read with a grain of salt should give us pause; asking ourselves, ‘Who is the credible source?” An objective review and still not stuck in the praises of pushing someone’s else agenda at the risk of not establishing themselves to be a credible source for information.

“Bolton is the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, but served less than two years, as Democrats banded together to block his long-term appointment. His time was marked by a rapid uptick in anti-American sentiment among the global diplomatic community. Bolton remains one of the most disliked foreign policy operators on the world stage.”
The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that Rudy Giuliani is also under consideration for the post. (He “could be” the next secretary of state, Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, said Tuesday on the “Today” show.)
From WASHINGTON — Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani is now the leading candidate to be President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for Secretary of State. I would assume something very appealing to former Mayor Rudy Giuliani and a move that would elevate a well-known national figure to become the U.S.’s Chief Diplomat. Mr. Giuliani and President-elect Trump established a very important bond based on trust during the campaign in this past election.
I think we can rest assured that former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani wouldn’t peddle and sell his influence for money as Secretary of State. Our military deserves better than the fiasco and burden associated with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Rudy Giuliani has a great deal of respect for law enforcement and our military men and women. Market Watch added the following:
“Asked at The Wall Street Journal CEO Council meeting in Washington on Monday evening if his title would soon be “Secretary,” Giuliani responded, “One never knows.” Giuliani also said that Bolton would be a good choice for secretary of state. He was then asked if there was a better choice than Bolton and he replied, “Maybe me, I don’t know.”
“For Trump, it is a choice between a longtime friend and ally in New York, Giuliani, and a hawkish conservative diplomat, Bolton, who called last year for the U.S. to bomb Iran. A final decision could be several weeks away, these people said, and other candidates could still emerge.”
