It didn’t take long for John Bolton, the former White House national security adviser, to land on his feet after leaving his position in Washington D.C. The former White House national security adviser parted ways this week with President Donald Trump and immediately resumed his old job on Friday. He is the head of two political action committees and announced $50,000 in contributions to Republican candidates.
Bolton took the reins of the John Bolton PAC and the John Bolton Super Pact, two groups he had headed before joining the White House 17 months ago. There was a seamless reentry into leadership for him.
Bolton left the White House earlier this week in the midst of smoldering differences of opinion with PresidentTrump on issues such as the U.S. military presence in Afghanistan. There were ongoing disagreements over diverse issues between Bolton and Trump.
As part of the resumption of his political action groups, Bolton announced the endorsement of five Republicans running in the November 2020 elections.
Those being supported are Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Senator Cory Gardner of Colorado, Senator Thom Tillis of North Carolina, U.S. Representative Adam Kinzinger of Illinois and U.S. Representative Lee Zeldin of New York.
Each candidate received $10,000 in contributions from the Bolton groups for a total of $50,000.
“The experience that these incumbent members of Congress have provides them with a remarkable understanding and knowledge of the threats we face from international terrorism and rogue regimes such as Iran and North Korea,” Bolton said in a statement.
