CFIF Applauds Selection of John Bolton for U.N. Ambassador
Urges Senate to Reject Obstruction and Confirm Him Swiftly

Alexandria, VA — The Center for Individual Freedom today commended the nomination of John Bolton to serve as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.

“This is an outstanding selection,” said Marshall Manson, the Center’s Senior Vice President of Public Affairs. “John Bolton has repeatedly demonstrated that Americans can count on him to be an unwavering advocate for U.S. interests and stand firmly for our principles.

“At a time when the United Nations is plagued by corruption and mismanagement, John Bolton is precisely the kind of representative we need in New York. He’ll be a consistent, firm voice for the United States. He’ll bring much-needed credibility with the American public to the world body at a time when its own credibility has been severely damaged. And he’ll be an advocate for meaningful U.N. reforms that introduce accountability and transparency.”

Despite Mr. Bolton’s extensive experience and impeccable credentials, some in the Senate have already indicated that they will strenuously oppose his nomination.

“Too many Senate Democrats have established an unprecedented record of obstruction by blocking consideration of the President’s judicial nominations. Now, they threaten the same treatment of the President’s nominee for U.N. ambassador,” Manson continued. “Are there no limits to their obstruction? The Senate should move quickly to confirm Mr. Bolton and let him get to work in New York.”

Currently, Mr. Bolton serves as Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security.

Monitor Project ( educates the public about the U.N.’s activities. The Center’s Confirmation Watch Project ( advocates up-or-down votes on the Senate floor for the President’s judicial nominees.
