    Former National Security Adviser John Bolton claimed Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that former President Donald Trump did not have any idea what to do in the Middle East. Anchor Jake Tapper said, “Former President Trump last night at a rally in Pennsylvania, Shanksville, said that none of this would have happened if he had been president. Take a listen to what he said.”

    Former National Security Advisor John Bolton claimed Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that President Joe Biden is “an embarrassment to the United States” for encouraging Israel not to retaliate against Iran. Bolton said, “Last night, the Iranians launched 320-plus cruise and ballistic missiles and drones. It’s a blessing that the Israelis find only 1% got through, but not every night is going to be that good. And unless Iran sees a powerful response, that risk will continue. And the way to re-establish deterrence is not proportional. That’s academic talk.”

    Former National Security Adviser John Bolton said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that former President Donald Trump had “simple-minded ideas about how the world works.” Bolton said, “I think it’s important to understand, and this is especially important for Trump critics to understand, he doesn’t have a philosophy. He doesn’t think in policy terms, as that’s conventionally understood in Washington. He thinks in anecdotal, ad hoc, transactional terms, seeing through the prism of how does this benefit Donald Trump.”

    John Bolton, a former ambassador and national security adviser, told Newsmax on Friday that the world shouldn't read too deeply into Secretary of State Antony Blinken's statement regarding NATO. Bolton said Ukraine wouldn't be admitted to the alliance "anytime too soon." On Thursday, speaking to reporters in Brussels, Blinken said, "Ukraine will become a member of NATO. Our purpose at the summit is to help build a bridge to that membership." The former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations said that "Hungary among others" would not agree to welcoming Ukraine under the current conditions. "NATO has never taken in as...
  • Bolton claims Trump ‘doesn’t have the brains’ to be a dictator

    Former National Security Advisor John Bolton said in an interview that his former boss, former President Trump “doesn’t have the brains” to be a dictator, as questions arise about what a second Trump term would look like. Conservative French outlet Le Figaro asked Bolton if Trump had dictatorial tendencies in an interview published Thursday. “He hasn’t got the brains! He’s a property developer for God’s sake!” Bolton replied. Trump, the lone remaining contender for the GOP presidential nomination, met with Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán earlier this month. The meeting at his Mar-a-Lago estate continued his embrace of autocratic leaders...
  • Bolton: Navalny’s murder demonstrates Putin’s confidence

    Alexei Navalny’s death in a Russian prison camp elicited widespread condemnation, and Western leaders demanded that Russian President Vladimir Putin be held accountable. A fierce Putin critic, Navalny returned to Russia in January 2021 after recovering from a 2020 attempted assassination by poisoning that was almost certainly ordered by the Kremlin. He was immediately jailed. President Joe Biden said Friday, “Make no mistake: Putin is responsible for Navalny’s death … What has happened to Navalny is yet more proof of Putin’s brutality.” Of course, there are always exceptions. In 2020, then-President Donald Trump declined to blame Russia’s government for the...

    As US allies reel from Donald Trump’s weekend comments encouraging Russia to attack European allies if they don’t meet NATO budget contribution goals, multiple former Trump advisers warn in my upcoming book that the former president will seek to formally withdraw the US from the NATO alliance if he wins a second term. In “The Return of Great Powers”, which will be published March 12, a former senior US official, who served in both the Trump and Biden administrations at a high level, told me that if Trump defeats President Joe Biden in November “the US will be out of...

    Some Republicans may be urging Nikki Haley to drop her presidential bid and step aside for former President Trump — but Trump's former national security adviser, John Bolton, disagrees with them all. "I think she should stay in," he told CBS News in an interview Friday. "In fact, I think she should announce that she's gonna stay in through the [Republican] convention, no matter what happens in South Carolina, where it looks like she'll lose." Haley, he went on to say, "can carry the flag for everyone within the Republican party who doesn't want Trump to get the nomination." Yes,...

    Former national security adviser John Bolton called for “disproportionate” strikes inside Iran after a drone attack killed three U.S. service members in Jordan over the weekend. Bolton said Sunday night on NewsNation that the U.S. needs to carry out retaliatory attacks in the wake of the deadly drone strike. He said the U.S. needs to “impose enough pain on Iran” to ensure it does not attempt a similar attack on the U.S. again. “To be clear, I don’t think it should be proportionate. I think it should be disproportionate. That’s how you create deterrence in the mind of your adversary,...

    Former National Security Adviser John Bolton said Tuesday on CNN’s “The Source” that the Colorado Supreme Court decision disqualifying former President Donald Trump from the state’s 2024 ballot was “incoherent,” and he predicted it will be overturned. Partial transcript as follows: KAITLAN COLLINS: Ambassador Bolton, when you look at this, this measure that was put in place to to keep former confederates from returning to power, I mean, what do you make of it being used here? BOLTON: I think it’s completely misplaced. I think this this Colorado Supreme Court decision is badly wrong for multiple reasons. Number one, the...

    Former National Security Advisor John Bolton this week called on Congress to “quickly” pass additional aid for Ukraine, warning that “Russia will win” if the U.S. doesn’t act. Many congressional Republicans have come out against additional support for Ukraine. Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, recently questioned “Why would we ever debate giving another dollar to Ukraine when our borders are wide open … and this administration refuses to do anything about it?”

    An intruder reportedly walked into the Washington home of President Joe Biden‘s national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, bypassing his “around-the-clock” Secret Service detail one night in late April. In the incident that is now under Secret Service investigation, an unidentified man appeared to be intoxicated and confused when Sullivan confronted him at around 3 a.m., government officials briefed on the matter told The Washington Post. Agents stationed outside only learned of what happened when the intruder had disappeared and Sullivan exited the home to tell them what had happened, the sources said. The report, published on Tuesday, said there were...

    Former National Security Adviser John Bolton said Thursday on CNN’s “News Central” that “Hamas couldn’t care less about a humanitarian pause” but was using it to get to a ceasefire. Bolton said, “The game that’s being played here is Hamas couldn’t care less about a humanitarian pause. What they’re interested in is getting a pause started, and then extending it to become a truce, and then extending it further to become a ceasefire. Now, that may not happen all at once, but Hamas benefits more than the Israeli Defense Forces do by having this pause.”

    Former National Security Adviser John Bolton warned voters on Tuesday that a second term in the White House for former President Donald Trump could trigger a constitutional crisis in the country. Bolton said his issue with a possible second term, should his former boss win reelection in 2024, is that the second Trump presidency could bring down major United States institutions by driving major leaders to resign. One of the greatest dangers that a second Trump term brings would be a constitutional crisis," Bolton told CNN's Jake Tapper. "Who is he going to nominate to be attorney general, and [what...

    ...."I think Ramaswamy reminds me an awful lot of Donald Trump," Bolton said in response to Ramaswamy expressing a need for facts in order to call Russian President Vladimir Putin a war criminal. "He has very firm opinions on subjects he knows absolutely nothing about and this was an example of it." "The main point is that Ramaswamy has made other points about this war and about what he's going to do to try and solve it," Bolton said. "Like Trump said, he would put Zelenskyy and Putin in a room and have it solved in 24 hours. Ramaswamy is...

    John Bolton, a former national security adviser to former President Trump, said Monday the former president “can spend a little of his own money” on his legal defense. “People who worry about whether poor Donald Trump’s going to have enough money for campaign purposes and legal bills … he’s a gazillionaire, ask him, he’ll tell you frequently. He can spend a little of his own money,” Bolton said in an interview on NewsNation. “Well it befuddles me why anybody would give a billionaire money to pay their own legal bills,” Bolton said. Trump’s campaign confirmed last weekend the former president...

    Former National Security Adviser John Bolton said Monday on CNN’s “News Central” that he believed if former President Donald Trump was convicted of a crime, MAGA supporters would move to another candidate. When asked if another Republican could win the primary, Bolton said, “Yes, I do, and I think it’s difficult but I think this could all turn, both for the primary, but particularly for the general election, on whether any of the four pending criminal indictments actually come to trial and get a jury verdict before the election.” He continued, “I think if a jury convicts Trump, I think...

    John Bolton, during a recent appearance on CNN, argued that Republicans should not back former President Donald Trump in 2024, as he could be a “convicted felon” by the 2024 Republican primary convention, and it would look bad for the Republican Party. Bolton, who is anti-Trump but served as Trump’s national security adviser, said he would ask Republican voters, “Do you really want to vote for Donald Trump even if you don’t mind voting for a convicted felon for President?”

Anchor Jake Tapper said, “There are a lot of Republicans in Congress railing about two standards of justice. They say when you look at the conduct that Donald Trump has been accused of. Is there any part of you that thinks that it’s true that the Justice Department is being weaponized against Donald Trump for political reasons?”
