WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today issued the following statement on the resignation of former Ambassador of John Bolton:

"John Bolton is a friend, and he has devoted his life to defending our national security, including providing wise counsel to multiple administrations. I sincerely hope his leaving the White House does not mean that the deep-state forces at State and Treasury-who have been fighting tooth and nail to preserve the Obama Iran nuclear deal-have finally convinced the president to go soft on Iran. Relaxing the maximum pressure strategy, which is succeeding in dramatically weakening the world's leading state sponsor of terror, would be an enormous mistake. Additionally, enabling Europe to send an economic lifeline to the Ayatollah would return to Obama's failed foreign policy and undo the single greatest national security victory of the Trump Administration."
