Not very classy. Even if you’re fired, you served the country and the president, at his pleasure.
It’s just this kind of self-regard that got John Bolton fired as national security advisor in the first place.
From the Washington Examiner:
Former White House national security adviser John Bolton slammed President Trump in front of a private audience, roughly eight days since being ousted from the White House.
Appearing in New York City at a conservative think tank lunch event on Wednesday, Bolton took shots at his former boss’s foreign policy decisions.
He said Trump’s invitation to Taliban leaders to meet at Camp David days before before the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks sent a “terrible signal” and was “disrespectful” to the victims because the group provided sanctuary to al Qaeda, according to Politico.
That meeting was canceled and Trump declared negotiations over an American withdrawal from Afghanistan “dead” after the Taliban claimed responsibility for a bombing in Kabul killed an American soldier and others.
Bolton brought up Iran and North Korea, saying any attempts to negotiate with them were “doomed to failure.” He also complained that a scrapped military response to Iran after it shot down a U.S. drone in June emboldened Tehran to go through with weekend drone attacks on the Saudi oil industry.
