Jake Tapper Grills Bolton: Why Can’t Trump Denounce Russian Election Meddling as Seriously as You?

‘Are you not concerned at all when the president calls a threat to the nation you take seriously a hoax?’


TAPPER: "Last week, I want to turn to Russia if we could. You were among the top national security officials out to make a show of force and speak directly about the Russia election interference threat, how it continues today. President Trump has not been able to do the same thing. Not in front of the world when he was in Helsinki, not ins, not at any of his rallies, not when the press is in front of him. Why not? Why can’t President Trump condemn Russian election interference with the same vociferousness that you’re able to?"
