Ukraine supporters among U.S. Secretary of State candidates

Three candidates have emerged as the potential U.S. Secretary of State under President-elect Donald Trump, reported on Nov. 10 the politico.com news site.

John Bolton, who served as the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. between 2005 and 2006, has been among the most outspoken critics of Russian President Putin, his military aggression in Ukraine and his sponsorship of terrorism in Ukraine. He has also been an outspoken critic of the Russian foreign policy of U.S. President Barack Obama, accusing him of acting in confusion in regards to Ukraine.

Bob Corker, the current head of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is an outspoken critic of Russian President Putin and his military aggression and sponsorship of terrorism in Ukraine. Corker has accused U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry of “wishy-washiness” (confusion) in emboldening Putin in his actions in Ukraine.

Newt Gingrich, who served as the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives between 1995 and 1999, visited Ukraine in September as part of the Yalta European Strategy summit. During this visit, he gave an interview to the eurointegration.com.ua news site in which he stressed the need for the U.S. to enable Ukraine to defend itself militarily against Russia and the willingness of a Trump administration to sell arms to the Ukrainian government on loan.

    1. Zero Hedge is just another Internet information source. Its comments
    must be put into pot and shaken well.

    2. Maybe by time I write this the candidate for Sect State will be named. I
    suspect name is not on list. I think with small margin in Senate, there will
    initially be no nominees from Senate.

    3. Look for outsiders for Cabinet post. Real outsiders and outliers.
    Think Roman Skaskiw for U. N?

    4. Think people who could be developed into Presidential timber in
    4 or 8 years hence.

    Consider that Trump will have inner circle called Presidential
    Advisors and nominate competent administrators as Cabinet
    Secretaries. In other words current insiders such as Giuliani,
    Sessions, Carson, Christie, Ludlow, et al. will provide direct
    personal comments to Trump, but might not hold any
    cabinet office but influence policy and decisions.

        But sometimes you have to read the enemies post to know how they think.

        The original post I made was for informational purposes not belief’s.

        While most of my Internet postings represent agreement with posting,
        I will occasionally post what the other side says. I understand that when
        I quote New York Times, I quote Marxist. That goes back to 1930’s.
        Contrary to their announcement that they will try to be fair, just do not believe it.
