John Bolton, former United States ambassador to the United Nations, said on Fox News late Tuesday that he believes President Barack Obama's actions toward Israel in the latter stages of his presidency are a "deep reflection" of his ideology.
Obama has caused outrage in recent days after he told the American U.N. delegation to abstain from voting on U.N. Security Council Resolution 2334, which ultimately passed and condemned Israel. Given that the U.S. is a permanent member of the security council, a veto from the U.S. would have killed the resolution for good.
"I think this is a deep reflection of Obama’s ideology," Bolton said on Fox. "He sees Israel in much the same way he sees the United States."
"[Obama] dislikes American exceptionalism, he dislikes Israeli exceptionalism, and I think he sees this as his way to 'set it straight,'" he added.
Bolton went on to predict that in Obama's 23 remaining days in office, America will continue to see his disdain for Israel and American exceptionalism.
