U.S. President Donald Trump continued to rip into former national security adviser John Bolton over his scathing critique of the president in his book, calling the conservative hawk “crazy” and bad at his job.
During a town hall event taped on Thursday afternoon that aired that evening, the president also took a few shots at his presumptive general election foe, Joe Biden, saying he has trouble speaking and “is shot.” Though Mr Trump does not view Mr Biden as politically “radical left,” he predicted the progressive wing of the Democratic party would run roughshod over the former VP.
“He didn’t do a good job,” Mr Trump said of his former national security adviser in a Fox News interview. “He wasn’t smart. He wasn’t sharp.”
In his book, Mr Bolton paints a picture of an ill-informed president who lacked any guiding principles except his own re-election. He called Mr Trump a danger to the country.
