POTUS Hires ‘Bad Cop’ in Bolton, Says National Security Expert
After staff changes within the White House staff, President Trump recently appointed John Bolton as the nation’s new national security adviser. For Corri Zoli, the director of research at INSCT, there may be one clear motive behind this move.
“I would say he’s chosen Bolton very much thinking about North Korea,” she told Newsday. “So he can have a bad cop . . . so that Bolton can be the real hardliner in the discussions so that Trump can negotiate on even terms, so the president can play the pure negotiator role.”
