Sen. Rand Paul on Sunday slammed former UN Ambassador John Bolton as "a bad choice" for national security adviser.
In an interview on ABC News' "This Week," the Kentucky Republican said Bolton, under consideration by President Donald Trump to fill the position vacated by Michael Flynn's resignation, is too independent and hawkish for the role.
"The problem with John Bolton is he disagrees with President Trump's foreign policy," Paul said. "He would be closer to [Arizona Republican] John McCain's foreign policy – he still believes the Iraq war was a good idea. He believes that nation-building is a good idea."
"I think John Bolton would be much closer to McCain than Trump. And I think that his history of sort of acting on his own, my fear is that secret wars would be developing around the globe. So no, I think he would be a bad choice. "
