Looney Cruz: Deep State Caused Trump to Fire Bolton

Sen. Ted Cruz openly speculated that “deep state forces” may have influenced President Trump’s decision to force out national security adviser John Bolton.

Bolton, a foreign policy hawk, was a key figure behind Trump’s decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal. In a flurry of tweets Tuesday, Cruz wondered if Bolton’s exit signals Trump has been convinced to go “soft” on Iran.

“I sincerely hope his leaving the White House does not mean that the deep-state forces at State and Treasury—who have been fighting tooth and nail to preserve the Obama Iran nuclear deal—have finally convinced the president to go soft on Iran,” the Texas Republican said.

“Relaxing the maximum pressure strategy, which is succeeding in dramatically weakening the world’s leading state sponsor of terror, would be an enormous mistake,” he added.

Cruz delivered a similar warning last week, during a speech in Washington, D.C., about sinister forces within the federal government bureaucracy working to salvage the Iran deal. (Read more from “Looney Cruz: Deep State Caused Trump to Fire Bolton” HERE)
