For Immediate Release:
Statement by John Kerry on Recess Appointment of John Bolton as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations
“The president has the right to make this recess appointment, but it’s the wrong decision. It only diminishes John Bolton’s validity and leverage to secure America’s goals at the U.N.
“John Bolton has been rejected twice by the Senate to serve as our Ambassador to the United Nations. This is not the way to fill our most important diplomatic jobs.”
