John Bolton may no longer be part of the trump card of the administration — or even a supporter of the President, but former us national security Advisor continues to believe in the influence on the world stage, which he says is used to backup Canada amid tension with China.
“The negative consequences of the presidency of the tramp can be overcome,” he said in an interview Nationalwith Adrien Arsenault, however, noting that “the United States position in the world has not fundamentally changed.”
“Those who are anti-American will take on trump as an example of America in decline, and they would be wrong.”
He noted that the United States is still a force to be reckoned with, and that the country will be invaluable in efforts to secure the release of Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig, two canadian citizens detained in China as what Bolton called revenge for the arrest of the Executive Canada, Huawei Meng Wanzhou, at the request of the United States
“Obviously, they were collected in Canada, and not to arrest American citizens. It tells you a lot about the nature of this regime,” Bolton said.
“That’s why we are concerned about Huawei and [Chinese telecommunications company] ZTE to begin with. They are weapons States China, they are not commercial telecommunication companies in the sense that we in the West understand it and they have a much larger mission than a good telephone connection.
“So when they put pressure on such a small country as Canada, it is important for all of us to unite and speak with one voice.”
To watch | the United States stood behind Canada on the China arrests, says Bolton:
Said Bolton, he thought that the advice from the Trudeau administration to stand firm on the results of Meng not as pressure, but as the US is encouraging Canada “we will not allow the Chinese to get away with it”.
He also noted that the relations of Canada with the United States were strained under trump, but will remain strong, and he praised Justin Trudeau Prime Minister “Responsible” interaction with the President.
“It’s not easy for any foreign leader, especially from American allies to cope with this abnormal President,” he said. “Fundamental relations between the two countries really transcend the whims of even the election of the national leader.”

When it comes time to cast your vote in the upcoming presidential election, Bolton said he is not going to vote for trump, not for his democratic opponent, Joe Biden.
“I’m going to write in a conservative Republican. I think it’s philosophically the right thing to do” he said, acknowledging that some of the people who voted for trump in 2016, or not to vote at all will vote for Biden.
“I respect your choice, but it’s not mine.
“For a conservative Republican — and I have one from 15 years old and handed out leaflets for Barry Goldwater is not a happy time.”
