John Bolton skipped all future talks between Donald Trump and North Korea and Iran and claimed that they are & # 39; doomed to fail & # 39 ;.
Two attendees at a private lunch on Wednesday with Bolton, who was fired last week as Trump's third national security adviser, said Politics of Bolton's harsh words to the president.
They reported that the former national security adviser also said that the President's decision to invite Taliban leaders to Camp David the weekend before the 9/11 anniversary sent a & # 39; terrible signal & # 39; and & # 39; disrespectful & # 39; was for the victims of the terrorist attack because the jihadist group accommodated Al-Qaeda.
& # 39; He has torn Trump several times without using his name, & # 39; a participant said.
Ousted National Security Advisor John Bolton said in a private lunch with donors from the Gatestone think tank that future talks between the president and North Korea and Iran are doomed to fail.
Less than a week after his Trump announced his departure, Bolton speaks out against his former boss. One participant said: & # 39; He has torn Trump without using his name multiple times & # 39;
The president's brags came just over a week after Trump announced on Twitter that he said goodbye to Bolton about various disagreements on how to deal with national security and foreign policy.
& # 39; I told John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House, & # 39; tweeted Trump last Tuesday. & # 39; I disagreed with many of his suggestions, just like others in the administration, and so I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning. I thank John very much for his service. I will appoint a new National Security Advisor next week. & # 39;
Less than 15 minutes later, Bolton pushed back that it was Trump & # 39; s decision to separate.
& # 39; I offered to resign last night and President Trump said: & # 39; Let's talk about it tomorrow & # 39 ;, tweeted Bolton last week – and has since left his Twitter page titled @AmbJohnBolton empty.
Bolton, speaking to guests invited by the Gatestone think tank for lunch, said the president's failure to respond to an Iranian attack on an American drone earlier this summer paved the way for more aggression from the Middle East.
He also said that the US should have taken revenge, claiming that if we had done so, Iran may not have targeted Saudi oil fields during the weekend.
The former Trump official, who was previously chairman of Gatestone, said that the Iranian attacks that wiped out half of the oil supply in Saudi Arabia – make up 5 percent of the world stock – & # 39; an act of war & # 39; goods.
The president tweeted Sunday that the US & # 39; closed and loaded & # 39; and are willing to respond to the attack on & # 39; the world's largest oil refinery.
Bolton made his derogatory remarks while talking to about 60 Gatestone donors at an exclusive event in Manhattan, with attendees including lawyer Alan Dershowitz, former attorney general Michael Mukasey, Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy, former Fox News host John Stossel and former New York Lt. Gov Betsy McCaughey.
The policy differences between Trump and Bolton were no secret, and Trump said the last straw happened when Bolton introduced the & # 39; Libyan model & # 39; wanted to apply to the American handling of North Korea.
Last Tuesday, Trump announced he said goodbye to John Bolton and announced his fourth national security adviser the following week
Bolton disputed that he was fired and said he offered his resignation the night before Trump made the abrupt Twitter announcement
On Wednesday, hours before Bolton turned away from Trump, the president announced his new national security officer, Robert O & # 39; Brien (right), who he thought would suit him better than his former hawk adviser
Trump promised to name Bolton's successor this week, and on the same day Bolton made the President's comments, announcing that hostage Robert O & Brien would be the fourth national security adviser to his presidency.
During a conversation with reporters on Wednesday in Los Angeles, California, Trump said he & # 39; good chemistry & # 39; which indicates that he thinks their working relationship may be more compatible than with Bolton.
After 17 controversial months as an assistant to Trump, Bolton said that he would have my say in time & # 39; but said that his main concern remained US national security, suggesting that he would not yet speak out against the government.
Since Bolton & # 39; s expulsion, however, he has been in conversation with literary agents to write and publish a memoir of his time with Trump. If the book came to fruition and assumed a & # 39; tell & # 39; perspective, it could bring him millions.
