Former national security adviser John Bolton took aim at the Trump administration’s foreign policy strategy on Wednesday at a closed-door lunch, reportedly ripping President Trump in all but name.
Politico reported that Bolton tore into the president’s efforts to negotiate with North Korea and Iran, which he warned were “doomed to failure,” and also blamed Trump for not taking stronger action after Iranian forces downed a U.S. spy drone earlier this year.
The article goes on to state the following:
“He ripped Trump, without using his name, several times,” one anonymous attendee of the lunch told Politico.
Bolton was reportedly saved some of his “strongest remarks” for the cancelled meeting at Camp David between the Trump administration and top Taliban officials, The Hill reports.
John Bolton harshly criticized Trump’s foreign policy at a private lunch, according to Politico, saying inviting the Taliban to Camp David sent a “terrible signal” and it was “disrespectful” to the victims of 9/11 because the Taliban had harbored al Qaeda. https://t.co/3rGjMulaa2

“Bolton spoke to around 60 donors at the exclusive NYC restaurant Le Bernardin. Attendees included noted lawyer Alan Dershowitz.
“Dershowitz told the crowd,
to ‘thunderous applause,’ that it was ‘a national disaster’ Bolton had been booted from the WH”https://t.co/fMw61w0CJu
