Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, November 18, 2019

"Bolton told the gathering of Morgan Stanley's largest hedge fund clients that he was most frustrated with Trump over his handling of Turkey, people who were present said. Noting the broad bipartisan support in Congress to sanction Turkey after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan purchased a Russian missile defense system, Bolton said Trump's resistance to the move was unreasonable, four people present for his speech said. Bolton said he believes there is a personal or business relationship dictating Trump's position on Turkey because none of his advisers are aligned with him on the issue, the people present said." Bolton was suggesting that Trump is making foreign policy decisions based on what will make him money. Trump's refusal to separate himself from his business has left him compromised and mired in conflicts of interest. Trump is getting people killed in Northern Syria because he wants to keep making money in Turkey.

Bolton confirms what was widely known, and what continues to be entirely ignored by any Trump supporter and the GOP at large.

I still, and will never, get over the GOP blowing-off Donald's financiopathy in office. When you're comfortable with the president selling out the United States for money the next step is turning a blind eye towards Trump sexually using your wives and daughters.

Not that I doubt the story but . . . . is this a teaser for Bolton's book soon to be released?

I have to admit, I never thought John Bolton would actually reveal information like this about Trump. This basically shows every Trump supporter look comletely stupid and I don't see how they could continue to support him.

"I have to admit, I never thought John Bolton would actually reveal information like this about Trump."

Just speculation but . . .

That must have been one hell of a knock down, drag out, vulgarity laced "mutual agreement" when the two of them decided Bolton would resign/get fired on that fateful day.

Human intuition will tell you that Trump is doing exactly what Bolton is describing.

So far, I haven't heard any mention of Bolton's comments on any major news media. To me, this is the most damning story for Trump yet it is being ignored in the media and here. I think the Conservatives are afraid of the story and most of the rest of us are afraid that it is simply too good to be true.
