    Bolton suggests some of Trump's foreign policy decisions are guided by personal interest

    In private speech, Bolton suggests some of Trump'''s foreign policy decisions are guided by personal interest

    Former national security adviser John Bolton derided President Donald Trump’s daughter and son-in-law during a private speech last week and suggested his former boss’ approach to U.S. policy on Turkey is motivated by personal or financial interests, several people who were present for the remarks told NBC News.

    According to six people who were there, Bolton also questioned the merits of Trump applying his business acumen to foreign policy, saying such issues can’t be approached like the win-or-lose edict that drives real estate deals: When one deal doesn’t work, you move on to the next.
    We already knew this - trump's own personal gain over national security.

    Trump is meeting with Erdogan at the White House tomorrow. I wonder what reward trump will receive for turning over the Kurd occupied territory?

    It's amazing how so many of the people Trump hires turn out to be scumbags, right?

    Maybe he'll blow trump and then trump blows Putin twice.

    You apparently aren't very familiar with the personality of John Bolton.
