Statement from Will Ruger on John Bolton’s White House Departure

ARLINGTON, Va.—Will Ruger, Vice President of Research and Policy at the Charles Koch Institute, in response to news that national security advisor John Bolton has left the White House:

“President Trump has made clear he wants to pursue a more restrained foreign policy and he should have a national security advisor who shares his vision. We hope that the President selects a national security advisor who will help him implement his stated goals to end the wars in Syria and Afghanistan instead of impeding those efforts. The right choice could also help him find better paths forward with North Korea and Iran that avoid unnecessary wars while safeguarding our interests, and make sure our wealthy allies pay a fair share for their defense.”

The Charles Koch Institute is working to expand public debate about what foreign policy will make us more safe and secure. Find out more below:
