Previous Sunday, after ‘The Daily Telegraph’ described that Bolton told a newspaper that he is going to vote for Joe Biden, former vice president, but the spokesperson of Bolton said the newspaper was wrong.
The statement was incorrect, Sarah Tinsley says
Spokesperson of Bolton, Sarah Tinsley, told a media company, CNN, that this statement is wrong, the Ambassador never told anyone that he decided to vote for former vice president, Joe Biden. She added that the Telegraph was inspected for a correction. She concluded the whole matter by saying that Bolton will not be voting for Trump or Biden.
However, the Telegraph described in an article that former national security adviser, Bolton, would be voting for Joe Biden, they further explained that they didn’t quote Bolton saying he would.
In an interview that was aired on Sunday, Bolton told the Telegraph that in 2016, he voted for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton. He further explained that now I had seen this President so close, I can’t do this once again. He described his concern is just for the nation, and Trump doesn’t represent the Republican cause that I want to go back.
Bolton insisted that voting for Biden was not betraying his GOP roots because he said he didn’t believe Trump represented the Republican Party.
