Watch: Trump Lays Into John Bolton, Reveals What He Was Really Up To

(Liberty Bell) – Earlier this week, during his Town Hall style interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, President Donald Trump did not mince words when discussing his one-time national security adviser, John Bolton, whose forthcoming book has caused quite a stir in Washington, D.C.

The book has been criticized by the administration as actually being in violation of the law.

The event covered an array of topics, including a question as to what Trump hopes to achieve in a second term.

Trump explained that his first four years have featured many bad actors, and that he looks forward to serving a second team with the team he’s put together during his first.

“You make some mistakes, like an idiot like Bolton,” said President Trump. “All he wanted to do was drop bombs on everybody. You don’t have to drop bombs on everybody, you don’t have to kill people.”

“I said, ‘Okay John, but now you know it wasn’t, right,’” the president continued. Bolton and Trump have long been at odds over the US intervention in the Middle East and Iraq.

Bolton has also been criticized for having advocated for the Libyan model, in which Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi surrendered his nuclear weapons on 2003 in the hopes that he would gain goodwill from the United States only to be bombed by the Obama administration in the midst of national unrest, which culminated with his death and the region’s descent into chaos.

After Gadhafi’s death, one can now buy slaves on the open market in the war-ravaged nation.

“Once he said those two things I no longer paid much attention to him, if any,” Trump added.

“But I’ll tell you he was good for one thing: everyone thought he was crazy, because all he wants to do is bomb people. You know he’ll fight Russia, let’s fight Russia, let’s fight China, let’s fight them all at the same time,” he explained.

“He’s crazy. When I walked into a room with him, I knew that. When they saw Bolton they always gave me what I wanted, because they said ‘Trump’s going to drop bombs on me, he’s got this maniac with him.’”

Trump concluded by declaring that Bolton “didn’t do a good job,” and that he “wasn’t smart, he wasn’t sharp,” and, he believes, ultimately an unhappy person.

“He’s the only man I’ve ever met, I knew him for a year,” President Trump said. “I don’t think I ever saw him smile. I said to him once, ‘John, do you ever smile?’ It says something about a person.”


  1. I Believe that Bolton was always Deep state establishment
    of warmonger,
    But President Trump’s Billon mind Not about war,
    (war with economy)
    Bolton is nothing But Betrayer and bunch of liars on he’s Book,

  2. Bolton and Hillary Clinton have the same genetics: war mongering lunacy. If those two were in office and unchecked we would have had phenomenal fireworks for the next 50 years. It’d make the bombing of Hiroshima look like a fun night at the carnival.

  3. Remember those words HRC spoke “We came We saw and he died” then laughed like an idiot. I believe this was about Gadhafi and his death, I believe she had a big part in the planning and execution plus where did all the gold go right after his death??? Bolton had to go sooner than later, he is spewing lies & getting revenge for his own personal $$ gain.

  4. Bolton in my opinion thought he was the president. He said, that Trump was an idiot he knew nothing. Well I beg to differ.
    Trump found the magic wand that Obama said he would need to bring back manufacturing and jobs.
    If the people want to continue with the rebuilding of our country, getting back the economy like it was. Vote Trump.
    If you want the same old high taxes, no jobs, no military, vote Biden and Obama.
    Trump, did it once and he’ll do it again. You know he’s not all talk. Actions speak louder than words.
    Trump, was and is the man of the hour. He’s what we need.
    He’s making these countries pay where the Obama, Biden administration paid and paid. Gave away our jobs. What was it Obama said in that open Mike, wait till i’m elected again, i’ll have more flexibility. That’s what he told Russia.
    Trump put sanctions on Russia. Who is the best for Russia and the rest?
    Trump makes them pay. He puts American first. Biden and Obama put no one but themselves first.
    Obama left office a multi millionaire. He went in with nothing.
    Trump went in a millionaire and gave away his own money to good causes.
    GVe back to the blacks. Gave their lives back. Jobs.
    Hispanics jobs.
    All the Democrats know to do is raise taxes and give away money, jobs, and replenish our military. Biden is already talking about taking 750 billion from our military and giving it to WHO.
    I could go on and on. But I won’t. Elect Biden and watch what happens. Obama for 4 more years. This country and people will be so poor and in bondage to Iran and Iraq. Biden, Obama, Omar, Tailib, Pressely, and AOC, Maxine, Pelosi, and Schumer will be calling the shots.
    You want the left and I mean the far left. Vote Biden. Me i’m voting Trump.
    He brought us back from the brink of disaster once and he’ll do it again. God willing.

  5. If John Bolton wants to drop bombs on everyone he should have run for POTUS! That way, once elected (hardly likely) he would have free rein as CINC of the Armed Forces of the USA 🇺🇸 to engage in all manner of militaristic adventurism! This would make him solely responsible for any outcome, as President Trump would have been had he heeded Bolton’s advice when Bolton was Trump’s NSA! The fact that Bolton has chosen to publish a “tell all” book has revealed a heretofore unrevealed spiteful, vengeful side to his personality! The fact that he may have included classified information in the book also raises concerns about the potential impact of such upon national security! I used to be a big fan of John Bolton, but his actions during his time in the Trump Administration have been major disappointments to me!

  6. Diplomacy works with people of like mind, intelligence, and who have the moral suasion in their ranks and country. There are – sadly – times when it does not work, and drastic action is the only remaining solution. Life is full of uncertainty assumptions, and false knowledge. So we do the best we can, and in the case of Bolton, apparently, President Trump used him as an unspoken threat for a time – to encourage “dialogue” with our sworn enemies. Of course our enemies could change sides at a moments notice. So force must be used sparingly.

  7. People say TRUMP shouldn’t bad anyone yet the demoncrats and scum like bolton do it amd no one is up in arms. Let me ask you something Alexandra what would you do if i verbally assulted your mother or children?

    • I agree. If this was a perfect world and everyone was peaceful, Alexandra would have a point. But I remember in the very beginnin, Trump had to constantly quash Bolten because he is and was a war monger – wanted to be in several wars at one time and Trump wanted no part of a war now or later. Our country does not need to get involved in a war if it doesn’t have to. I never could stand Bolten even before Trump came on the scene.

  8. If they ask you about somebody who is trying to do you harm raise above and don’t insult or belittle.

    .you will be respected more by respecting your enemies

    • Exactly, Guns. Was a real war monger. He would have had us in many unneeded wars if he could have had his way. Trump HAD to get rid of him.
