US election: ‘Trump needs to be denied a second term’, says John Bolton – BBC Newsnight

President Trump’s former National Security Adviser John Bolton speaks to Newsnight’s Emily Maitlis about the upcoming US election, the state of the Republican Party and his controversial book, The Room Where It Happened. Please subscribe HERE

John Bolton had a front row seat in the Trump administration as former National Security Advisor.

His hawkish foreign policy stance often clashed with Donald Trump’s, and he described him – after he left – as ‘erratic, impulsive’ and ‘stunningly uninformed’.

In a best selling book, The Room Where It Happened, John Bolton admitted he saw President Trump deny security aid to Ukraine until he’d secured the promise of an investigation into Joe Biden.

This issue would become central to Trump’s impeachment last year.

Democrats pressed Bolton to testify but he refused to do so voluntarily.

They decided a legal fight to force the issue would take too long, and pressed ahead without him.

Full revelations of what he knew were only confirmed in his memoirs.

    If this low life Bolton tells us Trump shouldn't have a 2nd term in office then he most Definitely does need a 2nd term in office . Remember Bolton's interview with John Pilger when not realising the cameras were still rolling called Pilger " a commie lover "

    You're so left wing biased it's unbelievable. Brainwashing people everyday to follow the beliefs that benefit your agenda. The world is heading to a very dark place if Sleepy Joe Biden gets in. Why don't you report the news and stop trying to sway people with your far left views. Shocking BBC

    You can’t just say someone has caused damage without saying what that damage is, Bolton is talking out of his ass.

    This is the problem.
    The undertone of every report is "How do we solve this awful problem of Trump being in power".

    Lol, I'm stunned Bolton holds this view. I need to sit down 😂

    Going by early voting, it seems Trump is going to comfortably win Florida. Looking at early voting in other important states, Democrats are under performing while Republicans are over performing.

    This should worry Democrats and Bolton. Trump seems on course to win the EC, and possibly the PV as well. Shocking, considering the numbers the polling companies are chucking out.

    Sooner or later we all find out about trump. 3 bankrupted businesses and that is nothing to having to closed down and fined because of theft and FRAUD ! Now the million you claimed in taxes was …$750 , you are a tax evading crook and the audit tells us that if your supporters haven’t caught on yet ! They are waiting till your presidential immunity is expired and you will be hit with all the crooked shit you have been trying to hide. You might need more lawyers that are not in jail , …yet ! Only president in history endorsed by the White Supremacists and having 8 friends in prison for FRAUD ! TicTok !
