Donald Trump has notoriously thin skin, and an even more notorious thirst for revenge. With those facts in mind, John Bolton will likely soon be the target of his public ire as Politico reports that the recently fired national security adviser ripped Trump and his foreign policy decisions to a room full of influential conservatives, including Rebekah Mercer, the billionaire Breitbart-backer, and her father, Robert Mercer, both among Donald Trump’s biggest financial donors in 2016. Rebekah Mercer reportedly introduced John Bolton to big applause.
Billionaire Rebekah Mercer introduced Bolton as “the best national security adviser our country could have hoped for,” garnering her very loud applause.
Of course, John Bolton is a very dangerous individual who was the architect of the disastrous Iraq war. He also slammed Donald Trump’s plan to bring the Taliban to Camp David.
John Bolton, President Donald Trump’s fired national security adviser, harshly criticized Trump’s foreign policy on Wednesday at a private lunch, saying inviting the Taliban to Camp David sent a “terrible signal” and that it was “disrespectful” to the victims of 9/11 because the Taliban had harbored al Qaeda.
Bolton also said that any negotiations with North Korea and Iran were “doomed to failure,” according to two attendees.
Finally, something we can agree on! It was a terrible idea to bring the Taliban to Camp David.
Talking about a thwarted plan to strike Iran after a reported June attack on Saudi Arabian oil tankers, Bolton insinuated it was Trump who backed away at the last second.
During Wednesday’s luncheon, Bolton said the planned response had gone through the full process and everybody in the White House had agreed on the retaliatory strike.
But “a high authority, at the very last minute,” without telling anyone, decided not to do it, Bolton complained.
Attorney Alan Dershowitz was there, and his praise of the recently fired national security adviser was reportedly wildly applauded.
During the Q&A session, Dershowitz told the crowd that it was “a national disaster” that Bolton had been booted from the White House, to what the attendee described as “thunderous applause.”
Knowing Donald Trump, we can expect a full-scale Twitter attack on John Bolton before the sun rises tomorrow.
