I was a guest on CNN’s State of the Union, and one of the panelists, CNN senior political analyst John Bolton, began by saying that he has known Donald Trump for 20 years, and that the president’s style is what I think of when I hear “Donald Trump.”
Bolton’s assessment is not entirely inaccurate, and in fact, Trump has a long history of being a pretty well-spoken person.
But it’s also not entirely accurate.
It’s not that Trump is not a charming person; he’s certainly a charming guy, and it’s not hard to imagine him getting along with people.
He certainly has a sense of humor, and a sense that people don’t take kindly to him.
He’s a bit of a bully, and I have to wonder about how he deals with people, too.
That’s why, after reading my interview with Bolton, I was surprised to see a lot of folks take offense at my description of Trump as “not very nice.”
One of them, a former colleague, sent me a link to a column by another CNN contributor, Mike Cernovich, in which he described Trump as the “most cruel human being on Earth.”
Cernich wrote, “I’ve known him for a very long time and know him to be a cruel man, and he doesn’t know it.
He doesn’t even have a sense or a sense to realize it.
The most cruel person on the planet.”
When I called Bolton to ask him about the charge, he quickly agreed to an on-camera interview with me.
The interview took place on the same day that Bolton released his new book, A Dangerous President: How a Reckless President Threatened America, which describes how Trump and his administration took the nation by storm, despite the president himself being a bully.
Cernicy told me, “Donald is not the most nice person on Earth.
He is a vicious and mean person.
I have no doubt that he will be a great president, and if he is a great President, the world will be better off for it.
I think he’s a terrible person, but he’s got to be dealt with.”
Bolton, who is an attorney and former law professor at the University of Virginia, was born in Brooklyn, New York, and grew up in Queens.
When he was 11 years old, he attended a party in Manhattan with his friends and relatives, where the young man he later described as “the most beautiful person in the world” gave him a ride to a party.
The next day, he said, he drove out to Trump Tower in New York City.
“The next day I went out and sat on the steps of the Trump Tower and I was like, ‘Whoa, I can’t believe this is happening.'”
At the time, Bolton was a Republican political operative.
He said that he had no idea what he was doing, but “I was so excited and so inspired by the idea that someone who had so much power would have to deal with people and actually get it done.”
Trump invited him to a rally in New Hampshire in the spring of 1988, and the next day Bolton went to the same rally.
Trump had made the case that the Clintons should be prosecuted for perjury and obstruction of justice for their role in the Whitewater scandal, and Bolton had helped push for the impeachment of President Bill Clinton.
The following year, Trump had named Bolton as his secretary of state, and within a year, Bolton joined the administration as the chief of staff to then-Secretary of State James Baker.
As the White House became more aggressive in its foreign policy, Bolton came under criticism for not being tough enough.
When Bolton was forced to resign in 1999 over his criticism of then-CIA Director David Petraeus, the former CIA officer, he claimed that his critics were “bitter and bitter people” who “don’t understand anything.”
In an op-ed for the New York Times, Bolton wrote that “in my opinion, they are the worst people on earth.”
The same year that Bolton was appointed ambassador to the United Nations, the U.S. government passed a law, the National Defense Authorization Act, which gave Bush the power to waive the sanctions on North Korea if he deemed it necessary to do so in order to prevent the country from being able to develop a nuclear weapon.
Bolton later testified before Congress that the sanctions law was intended to prevent North Korea from obtaining a nuclear bomb, but the U,S.
Congress didn’t give him the authority to do that.
“I think they were trying to get rid of the nuclear bomb,” Bolton said at the time.
Bolton also told the House Foreign Affairs Committee that the NDA was necessary because North Korea had been “unable to develop nuclear weapons.”
Bolton testified that North Korea was already developing a nuclear arsenal by 2002, and at that point he believed it was “time to get serious.”
