John Bolton likely thinks Trump is a ‘moron’ and he has to stop him from ruining everything: Ex-aide

Published

on

Mark Groombridge, a former aide to current Trump national security adviser John Bolton, says that his former boss is likely staying on his job to stop President Donald Trump from making what he views as horrific strategic errors.

In an interview with The New Yorker, Groombridge said that Bolton probably doesn’t have a very high view of the president’s intellect, which is why he feels he’s desperately needed to coordinate the White House’s national security policy.

“John is thinking, To the extent I can modify or mollify the President’s actions, I will,” he explained. “He is truly a patriot. But I wonder how he goes into work every day, because deep in his heart he believes the President is a moron.”

Given this, Bolton tailors his messaging to the president in ways that are best suited to hold his short attention span.

“Bolton gets to the point very fast,” a senior Administration official told The New Yorker. “He’s very brief, and the President appreciates that.”

Although Bolton is a much more aggressive hawk than Trump when it comes to using military force, the two of them nonetheless have a shared contempt for international treaties and institutions that they believe constrain American power, one official tells the publication.

Trump advisors futilely trying to get him to stop ranting about statues as his re-election prospects collapse: report

Published

According to a report focusing on Donald Trump's rally at Mt. Rushmore on the evening before the 4th of July, advisors to the president are attempting to get him to start focusing on bread and butter issues that will get him re-elected instead of harping on statues being pulled down by protesters across the country.

As the Daily Beast report illustrates, their efforts appear to be futile based upon his Friday night speech.

With the president trying to fire up the crowd by insisting, “Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our founders. They think the American people are weak, and soft, and submissive,” the Beast reported that Trump, "decided to focus heavily Friday evening on protesters and Black Lives Matter activists who want various American monuments, including those honoring Confederate, white-supremacist, and slave-owning figures of history, torn down and destroyed for good.
