Trump adviser reportedly speaks regularly to Grayling and Fox on Brexit

Johnathan Swan, Axios:

Trump isn’t the only senior White House official rooting for Brexit. National security adviser John Bolton talks regularly by phone with his Brexiteer friends inside Theresa May’s imploding government — Cabinet ministers Liam Fox and Chris Grayling — according to a May government source.

What they’re saying: “John is a strong believer in Brexit and has been encouraging the Brexiteers to keep it up,” the source told me.

Joe Lo, writing at Left Foot Forward:

Bolton has been described as a US nationalist and is a longstanding critic of the European Union.

Bolton says he is opposed to EU bureaucracy but sceptics say Bolton opposes the European Union because it acts as a counter-balance to US power on issues such as the nuclear deal with Iran, which Bolton fiercely opposes and the EU supports.

Great. Just what we need. More idiots who think they’re smart.

We need a General Election, stat.
