Former national security adviser John Bolton, in an interview with Bret Baier of Fox News, criticized the response to President Trump’s coronavirus as “inconsistent” when analyzing what he called the unpredictable nature of the president’s decision-making.
“The difference between [Joe] Biden and Trump is that Biden has an opinion, and Trump does not have an opinion, “Bolton said, when asked who would be better in foreign policy.” On any day, any decision is possible. And that seems scary to me. I think the coronavirus response shows exactly the kind of fear I am. “

Bolton continued, saying that “the response was choppy, inconsistent, sporadic, and not as effective as it could have been.” He later warned that this “only gives a preview of what could happen in an even more serious crisis.”

“I did my best and, given the opportunity, I would do it again,” he said. “I’m sure I made a lot of mistakes, I have no doubt about that. I wish I could correct them in retrospect. But I think the kind of security for the United States that I defend is the mainstream of the Republican Party, and my disappointment is that Trump is a long way off. “

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo criticized Bolton for the book in a recent “Hannity” interview, coming to compare him to intelligence informant Edward Snowden. Bolton did not agree, but did not seem to give much importance to the comment because, he says, Pompeo has become accustomed to accompanying the president:
“That doesn’t make sense, but on the other hand, the president was quoted months ago calling me a traitor, so the fact that Pompeo does it is normal.”
For his part, Trump criticized Bolton and said he should face prison time for allegedly including classified material in his book, something Bolton denies.
“Creepster John Bolton is a poor man who should be in jail, with money seized, to spread highly classified information for profit,” Trump tweeted Tuesday morning. “Remember what they did to the young submarine sailor, but they did nothing to Crooked Hillary. I ended up forgiving him. It wasn’t fair!
