Senator Paul Wants Trump To Appoint Negotiators To Talk Through INF Treaty with Russia

Oct. 22, 2018 (EIRNS)—Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) reported to Fox News yesterday that he thinks “John Bolton is the one advising the President to get out of the INF treaty,” and “I don’t think he [Bolton] recognizes the important achievement of Reagan and Gorbachev on this.” Further, “I think it’s a big, big mistake to get out of this historic agreement.” Paul called the pact a big part of Reagan’s legacy.

Paul, instead, is making the proposal to the President that that he appoint nuclear arms control negotiators to actually work with the Russians. “We have complaints that they are not in compliance. They also have complaints that some of our missile launchers in Europe are not in compliance,” he said. “Let’s have a rational discussion with experts on this and see if we can resolve it.”
