Judging by the reports and reviews offered this week by U.S. journalists who have seen it, Mr. Bolton’s book does not appear to provide the smoking gun Mr. Trump’s critics had hoped for
Strangely this article is not behind a pay wall.
"It was, after all, Mr. Trump who had to curb Mr. Bolton’s enthusiasm for launching an attack on Iran after that country shot down an unmanned U.S. drone a year ago. Mr. Bolton had advocated a 'disproportionate' response. Mr. Trump cancelled a planned retaliatory attack at the last minute after learning that it would lead to the deaths of dozens of people. Mr. Bolton calls the decision 'the most irrational thing I ever witnessed any president do.'
Actually, the move made Mr. Trump look responsible, for once. And the subsequent U.S. surgical strike that killed Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani in January without a single civilian casualty, which occurred several months after Mr. Bolton left the White House, had a far greater strategic and symbolic impact. Had it been authorized by any other president, it would have been hailed as a stroke of genius on par with the operation that killed Osama bin Laden."
The President makes sound decisions but is just misunderstood by the media.
The president rails at people who have "no clue what they're doing", as the US marks independence.
"Speaking from the White House lawn on Saturday, Mr Trump took aim at protesters that he sees as anti-patriotic who have taken to the streets in the wake of the death in police custody in May of African-American George Floyd.
'We are now in the process of defeating the radical left, the anarchists, the agitators, the looters, and the people who, in many instances, have absolutely no clue what they are doing,' he said."
The people who have absolutely no clue what they are doing...I don't know, that could be a large part of the population.
