Washington: Donald Trump’s presidency was turbulent on Thursday, after former assistant John Bolton announced that he was unfit for office, which increased the stakes at a controversial re-election rally , Intended to boost his campaign, but still faced his own troubles.
Due to criticism of Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic and nationwide anti-racist protests, Trump once entered the second term with great confidence.
Now, before winning a big victory in 2016, even the outsider president who had never even participated in the elections faced a strong insider attack from his former national security aide.
“I don’t think he’s fit for office. I don’t think he has the competence to carry out the job,” Bolton told ABC News to promote his book, “The Room Where it Happened.”
The book — which the White House is trying desperately to get stopped by court order — alleges that Trump asked Chinese President Xi Jinping for re-election help, obstructed justice, and was no match for Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“Putin thinks he can play him like a fiddle,” Bolton told ABC.
Trump lashed back at Bolton, calling him a “sick puppy” and dismissing the book as “fiction.”
However, despite Trump’s previous scandals and even impeach, this book has brought new pain to people.
He largely failed to take responsibility for the rapid spread of the coronavirus, which has killed more than 117,000 Americans and caused a painful economic slowdown, calling it an “invisible enemy” and will It blames China.
He marked the wave of anger against police brutality on the street as a left-wing phenomenon, and rejected polls that polled that systematic racism was a problem.
However, Bolton is different.
He is a lifelong Republican and foreign policy hawk. It can be said that he is on the right side of Trump, so he is not vulnerable to Trump’s usual attacks.
