Ted Cruz Worries “Deep State” Behind Bolton’s Ouster

The Daily Beast reports:

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) expressed concern Tuesday that “deep-state forces” are behind President Trump’s dismissal of former national security adviser John Bolton.

“I sincerely hope his leaving the White House does not mean that the deep-state forces at State and Treasury—who have been fighting tooth and nail to preserve the Obama Iran nuclear deal—have finally convinced the president to go soft on Iran,” Cruz wrote in a series of tweets.

In a Tuesday tweet, Trump confirmed that he had “disagreed strongly” with Bolton about a number of foreign policy issues—namely Iran, Afghanistan, and North Korea. The president said that he dismissed Bolton, while Bolton insisted that he resigned from his post.
