Does anyone think the Bolton hire was to intimidate / put pressure on NK?
It wasn't long after Bolton was hired that the 1st NK summit was held.
Was Bolton the "bad cop" so trump could play "good cop"
that was my 1st thought when he was hired
Lol at the trumptards trying to justify bolton being hired. He was hired because trump saw him talking shit on tv and high quality candidates weren't exactly beating down the door to be nsa.
I thought he was hired to play a roll with NK.
exactly..because he was talking tough.
That roll has played its part and is now a detriment... I think people on this board left and right will agree it was time for Bolton to go.
this is the kind of brilliant 4D chess that only the true faithful like you can appreciate for next level strategy that it is:
- publicly, repeatedly praise a murderous dictator
- hire a guy who disagrees strongly with you on this issue
- make it clear that your POV is what matters
- don't make any deal whatsoever
- fire the guy who disagrees with you
i can only imagine how tired you are of all of this winning.
I said this when Bolton was hired
I may be wrong... but that's what it looked like to me
at the time trump needed someone to put the threat of fear into kim
did it work... not sure but it got him to the table for a summit.
Hopefuliy the firing gets Kim back to the table.
I don't care who the president is... or how they negotiate.
I just want economic prosperity and peace
sounds like some on here want the opposite just so you can declare trump a failure.
Think about that
