• In an interview with Le Figaro, John Bolton disparaged the former president’s intellectual prowess.
• The former national security adviser to Trump has expressed strong disapproval of his former superior.
•Bolton is certain that if reelected, Trump will withdraw the United States from NATO.

John Bolton, the former national security advisor to Donald Trump, stated in a recent interview with the French daily Le Figaro that the former president “lacks the intelligence” to be a dictator.
Bolton, 75, ridiculed the former president’s professional heritage and insulted his intelligence, stating, “For goodness’ sake, he’s a real estate developer!” in response to speculation regarding the nature of a potential second term for Trump.

He emphasized: “Regarding the possibility of overthrowing the Republic, let’s be clear: Donald Trump is not Julius Caesar!” Bolton declared.
Bolton, an established member of the Republican right, has recently become an outspoken critic of his erstwhile superior.
Once a mainstay on Fox News, the ardent foreign policy advisor has served four Republican presidencies. However, Bolton’s allies denounced him after revelations in his memoir undermined a crucial aspect of President Donald Trump’s impeachment defense.

Bolton advised that President Joe Biden was erring when he threatened an apocalyptic future for the nation in the event that Trump returns.
Consistently, Biden and his political allies have cautioned that “Trump’s assault on democracy is not a relic of the past.” “He is promising the following for the future.”
The American Constitution and its institutions, according to Bolton, were robust.
“Hillary will not be able to take the election from Mar-a-Lago in November, just as he was unable to do while in the White House. The Constitution is unambiguous. “A third term is not possible,” he stated, as reported by Le Figaro.

On January 6, 2021, two months subsequent to his electoral defeat in the 2020 presidential election, Donald Trump faced allegations of endangering democratic norms when an assembly of his supporters invaded the Capitol Building.
Bolton stated of Trump, “Everything is transactional, episodic, and anecdotal. Furthermore, the outcome of the situation is entirely dependent on how this will benefit Donald Trump.
Bolton penned in a new preface to “The Room Where It Happened,” a memoir detailing his experiences inside the Trump administration, “Trump is unfit to be president.”

While Bolton may not hold the belief that Trump is capable of governing a dictatorship (as the former president has previously declared his intention to do so for the initial day of his presidency if re-elected), he cautions in his book that the situation will only worsen in the second four years if Trump is re-elected.
Abandoning NATO
Bolton reaffirmed his prior claims in an interview with the French daily that, if reelected, Trump would “very likely” attempt to withdraw from NATO.
A month ago, controversy erupted when the presumed nominee of the Republican Party stated that he would advise Russia “to do whatever the hell they want” to “delinquent” NATO members who had neglected to remit defense payments equivalent to two percent of the alliance’s gross domestic product.

Bolton further stated that Trump considers the United States’ allies to have “duped us and compelled us to sign ill-fated trade agreements.”
“The truth is that, for him, the Europeans are not really our friends.”
