As Donald Trump gears up for his re-election campaign, he is still grappling with one giant problem.
There are still backstabbing traitors in the Republican Party.
And Donald Trump was hit with a betrayal that took him completely by surprise.
Donald Trump made major news when he announced National Security Advisor John Bolton was leaving the administration.
Bolton was a neocon hawk straight out of the Bush administration, whereas Donald Trump campaigned as a Make America Great Again patriot.
The President would often joke that if it was up to Bolton, America would be in four wars at the same time.
Eventually Bolton’s opposition to Trump’s policies and leaking his displeasure to the media led to Bolton’s ousting.
Now Bolton is shopping a tell-all book to smear the President.
The Daily Beast reports:
Following his acrimonious departure from the White House, former National Security Adviser John Bolton has insisted that he will have his “say in due course.”
It hasn’t yet been a full week, but it appears he’s found a vehicle for clearing the air. According to two people with knowledge of the situation, Bolton has already expressed interest in writing a book on his time in the Trump administration, and has been in contact in recent days with literary agents interested in making that happen.
“He has a lot to dish,” one of the sources said, adding it was not clear if Bolton had settled on an agency yet.
Reached by The Daily Beast on Monday afternoon, Bolton only replied, “No comment” when asked about discussions with book agents and his potential project. But if he goes down this path, he’d be merely the latest former Trump official to try and turn their noisy exit into bestselling gold.
The Fake News Media would love nothing more than to parade Bolton around cable news and the Sunday talk shows to promote a book where Bolton lies about the President and attacks him as reckless, incompetent, and even treasonous.
The President resurrected Bolton’s failing career by granting him a high-profile position in his administration despite Bolton having a foreign policy that more closely resembled Hillary Clinton’s than Donald Trump’s.
And Bolton chooses to repay the President by dishing dirt on the Trump administration.
