Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told Fox News he was disappointed by some of the people President Trump appointed in his administration. The two picks he was most upset about where John Bolton as National Security Advisor and Mike Pompeo as secretary of state.
“Well, you know I’ve been a big fan of President Trump,” Paul stated. “I supported him for a long time — ever since I was defeated in the primary. But you know, one of the things I really liked about him is he has been outspoken that the Iraq war was a mistake, that regime change didn’t work. It led to unintended consequences, that when we removed Saddam Hussein, we actually emboldened Iran and made Iran stronger. Now Iran and Iraq are closely aligned, and there’s more of a problem since we removed Saddam Hussein.”
