Donald Trump has no guiding principles and is ineligible to become president, his former national security adviser John Bolton said in an interview released Thursday to promote his explosive book.
“I don’t think he is fit for office. I don’t think he has the ability to work,” Bolton told ABC News.
The Trump administration is scrambling to stop the publication of the memoir, “The Room Where It Happened”, arguing that it contained classified material.
In an excerpt from a book published by three newspapers on Wednesday, Bolton alleged that Trump asked Chinese President Xi Jinping to help in the re-election, in support of Beijing’s mass infiltration of Uygar Muslims and other minorities Were voiced and widely ignorant in the world.
“There’s really no guiding principle that I was able to understand other than what’s good for Donald Trump’s re-election,” Bolton told ABC News in an interview, which will be broadcast throughout Sunday.
“I think he was focused on re-election that long-term ideas fell by the wayside,” he said.
Bolton pointed to Trump’s outreach on behalf of North Korea leader Kim Jong Un, saying that Trump was fixated on “photo opportunities and the press’s reaction to that” rather than long-term American interests.
Bolton, a veteran Republican insider, is well known for his hateful views on North Korea – a major reason for his departure from the White House in September.
