Bolton: Interventionism vs. Non-Interventionism Debate Is ‘Very Unproductive’

While Former UN Ambassador John Bolton was careful not to discuss any potential role in a Trump administration or take on recent criticism from Senator Rand Paul, he did tell Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam on Thursday, “You hear a lot of debate about interventionism versus non-interventionism. I find that debate very unproductive.”

“To me,” continued Bolton, “it’s like saying, ‘Do you prefer a spoon or a knife?’ The immediate next question is, ‘For what?'”

Bolton described the two approaches to foreign policy more as “tools” to be used in any particular case, as opposed to set policy. “You do what’s appropriate,” said Bolton. “You don’t decide on a tool before you decide what your policy is.”

Breitbart News Daily airs on SiriusXM Patriot 125 weekdays from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Eastern.
