John Bolton’s bombshell Trump book: eight of its most stunning claims

Trump vs. Bolton is the ultimate heel vs. heel match. It sounds like Bolton may be lobbying for a position in a future Biden administration. Not a good sign. One of the best things Trump has done to date is ditching this guy.

Donald Trump’s former national security adviser John Bolton has made a series of explosive claims about the US president in his new book The Room Where It Happened, according to numerous news reports and an excerpt.

Most notably, Bolton claims Trump asked China to use its economic power to help him in the 2020 election, and tried to kill criminal investigations as “favors” for dictators whom he liked.

  1. From the article:
    “Most notably, Bolton claims Trump asked China to use its economic power to help him in the 2020 election, and tried to kill criminal investigations as “favors” for dictators whom he liked.”

    I’ve seen this a few times in regards to Bolton’s very recent claims. But consider: Trump may very well have encouraged China to buy American grain and other products, which China no doubt needs. Such trade, when it occurs, no doubt ‘helps America’. This, indirectly, arguably would have ‘helped Trump in the 2020 election’.
    But did Trump actually express it that way? Or did Bolton attach these concepts together, with ‘mental super-glue’, to make it appear this is how Trump portrayed it?
    Or, is the biased MSM simply misrepresenting what Bolton actually claimed in Bolton’s upcoming book?

    It’s hard to believe Bolton.
