Preferred Trump Admin. Choices

Reader comment on item: America's Know-Nothing Diplomacy [article]

Excellent points. That is why, as a Conservative, I am hopeful that President Elect Trump will appoint Ambassador John Bolton SOS, rather than the highly anticipated Newt Gingrich. Bolton would hit the deck running, i.e., would not have Gingrich's steep learning curve to be optimally effective. However, I also understand that political payback exerts strong influence on such decisions.

I'd like to think there is room for you in an international advisory capacity within the Trump Administration. Your mid-east expertise is certainly present in abundance. (You might have to mollify your views of Trump as a complete idiot to warrant consideration :)

Daniel Pipes replies:

I am with you concerning John Bolton, also my first choice for secretary of state.

I will modify my views on Trump if he earns it. I am opened minded. More to follow on this topic.
