“I just think it was a very bad idea,” Bolton said during an
interview with John Catsimatidis on AM 970 in New York. “It was
vindictive, because everybody knows that Donald Trump has a different
policy view and this is intended to try to box him in.”
strange turn of logic, though, Bolton also called for the incoming
administration to take action against the United Nations and the member
countries who supported the resolution, despite the fact that the US’s
historic decision to abstain from voting and not use its veto power that
let the resolution pass. Previously, the United States had always
exercised its veto right to block resolutions that it considered too
harmful for Israel.
“I think what Israel together with the
incoming Trump administration should do is say, ‘Look, we’re going to
give everybody a chance to do this over again, repeal this resolution
and pass something that’s acceptable,’” Bolton said.
