U.S. national security adviser John Bolton on Sunday defended President Trump's move to order, then cancel a strike on Iran.
"Neither Iran nor any other hostile actor should mistake U.S. prudence and discretion for weakness," Bolton said. "No one has granted them a hunting license in the Middle East."
He spoke in Jerusalem alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Bolton said he is in the Middle East for previously scheduled meetings with Israeli and Russian security advisers. And he warned Iran that the U.S. remains a formidable adversary.
