A Conversation with former National Security Advisor Ambassador John Bolton
In partnership with the United States Studies Centre, the Perth USAsia Centre convened a live virtual “in-conversation” discussion with former US National Security Advisor, Ambassador John Bolton.
Ambassador John Bolton served as National Security Advisor to President Trump for 453 days. One of America’s most experienced international relations advisors, Bolton has served every Republican president since Reagan. In his time with the Trump administration he dealt with chemical attacks in Syria, G7 showdowns, and the Kim Jong Un negotiations.
As an unabashed national security hawk, Bolton's critique of Trump’s handling of US foreign policy are thoroughly detailed in his new book The Room Where it Happened. During the 1st September public event, Professor Simon Jackman and Professor Gordon Flake unpacked with Ambassador Bolton his book, his foreign and strategic policy positions, and views on the future of American foreign policy.
