Trump Trashes John Bolton a Day After He Resigned: ‘Mr. Tough Guy’ Got Us into Iraq

‘He made some very big mistakes when he talked about the Libyan model for Kim Jong-Un, that was not a good statement to make’


TRUMP: “You know, John wasn’t in line with what we were doing and actually in some cases he thought it was too tough what we were doing. Mr. Tough guy. 'You know, you have to go into Iraq.' Going into Iraq was something that he felt very strongly about, so we’re right now in for over $7 trillion into the Middle East. And I don’t say it was his decision. You had a president and you had other people also, but he was very out there, I can tell you, and wanting to have them do it. I disagreed with that decision from the beginning even though I was a civilian so nobody cared, but I was out there and I was outspoken about it. I thought it was a terrible mistake. Here we are many, many years later, decades later and we’re still there and we’ve been acting as policemen.”
