Bolton Just Bashed Trump In Closed-Door Meeting: The Country Is ‘Doomed’ With Trump In Charge
Former national security adviser John Bolton is starting to open up about his time at the White House and on Wednesday, he took aim at Donald Trump’s foreign policy strategy at a closed-door lunch.
According to Politico, Bolton tore into the president’s efforts to negotiate with North Korea and Iran, which he warned were “doomed to failure.”
“He ripped Trump, without using his name, several times,” one anonymous attendee of the lunch told Politico.
Bolton has been reached out to by several publishers who have encouraged him to release a tell-all book about his time at the White House.
Bolton did not leave his post in good conditions with the president. In fact, Trump later argued that his former national security adviser was “holding [him] back,” and blamed Bolton for some “very big mistakes.”
“Frankly he wanted to do things — not necessarily tougher than me — You know John’s known as a tough guy. He’s so tough he got us into Iraq … but he’s actually somebody I had a very good relationship with. But he wasn’t getting along with people in the administration that I consider very important,” Trump said last Wednesday at the White house.
