Bolton, who was recess-appointed to his ambassadorship by President George W. Bush after failing to win confirmation in the Senate in 2005, discussed the move with reporters shortly after the video went live.
According to Bolton, he will play an active outside role in the race through John Bolton PAC and super PAC, which will focus on foreign policy, track the presidential campaign and could run ads in Senate races. He said he has also been in conversation with some of the 2016 presidential candidates and would offer his advice throughout the campaign.

Bolton added that Republicans were “much at fault” for not devoting enough time toward criticizing President Obama’s foreign policy, but Bolton sounded confident that recent events, such as the rise of the Islamic State and the Charlie Hebdo masacre in Paris, would ensure a significant national security debate in 2016.
“I think what we’re seeing, certainly on the Republican side, is that more candidates are talking about the issue then the political commentariat and political operatives would have said just a year ago,” he said.
