Ambassador John Bolton said President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel was “exactly the right move to make” on Thursday’s Breitbart News Daily with SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam.
“Israel is one of the very few, maybe the only country in the world where the American embassy is not in its capital city,” Bolton pointed out.
“If people want to walk away from the Middle East peace process, they’re welcome to do it.
“I think this is actually a positive contribution to the Middle East peace process,” he proposed.
Bolton noted that most other countries base their foreign policy on their own national interests, but the United States is “the country that seems to succumb most often to ideas that are not really necessarily in our direct national interest.”
