John Bolton National Security Advisor

In an interview with the Washington Post’s Robert Costa on Tuesday afternoon, former National Security Advisor John Bolton tore into President Donald Trump over foreign policy and his actions with international organizations. The comments come on the same day as the release of Bolton’s controversial book, The Room Where It Happened.

When asked if Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Russians have manipulated the President’s worldview, Bolton asserted there “wasn’t much there to manipulate.”

“I don’t think the President has a worldview. That to me is the central problem. He doesn’t approach national security with a philosophy in mind,” Bolton said. “He doesn’t have a grand strategy, he doesn’t have policies.”

Bolton named Putin and China’s Communist Party leader Xi Jinping as world leaders he believes manipulate the President.

“They do see the President as easy to maneuver around to achieve their objectives,” Bolton said. “I think that’s a very real concern.”

Bolton’s book has stirred up controversy over its content as The Justice Department resorted to legal action to halt the book’s release, saying there was classified information.

On Saturday, the request was denied. However, the Judge, U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth, expressed concerns that Bolton “gambled with the national security of the United States” in proceeding with the book’s release.

In an interview with Brian Kilmeade on Fox News Monday, Trump said Bolton should be prosecuted.

“But what he did do is he took classified information, and he published it during a presidency,” Trump said. “I believe that he’s a criminal, and I believe, frankly, he should go to jail for that.”

Allies of the President, like Former Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, have spoken out against Bolton and in support of the Administration’s foreign policy actions.

Bolton has several interviews planned on Tuesday and in the coming days to promote his book and further explain his account of his tenure in the Trump White House.

According to U.S. Customs and Border Patrol data Border Patrol agents detained over 30,000 Chinese individuals for illegally crossing the border from January to November 2023, sparking concern.

Just The News reports that National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd on Wednesday said the United States should be incredibly concerned by the influx of military-aged Chinese men coming across the southern border.

“Why are we seeing this influx?” Judd asked on the “Just the News, No Noise” TV show. “At best, they’re just coming here for a better life or for a better job. At worse, they’re coming here to be part of the Chinese government, and that’s what scares me an awful lot.”

“We know that the Chinese have huge gangs here in the United States, and they control certain parts of our country,” he later said. “They control the drug flow. They control the prostitution. They control everything that’s illegal in certain portions of the country. We have to look into that. It’s very important that we understand why we are having so many people from China, especially military-aged men, from China.”

“I don’t want to cause mass hysteria where United States citizens are violent towards people from China,” Judd said. “However, we have to … allow the intelligence community to do their job. We’ve got to let law enforcement do their job and look into these individuals.”

Many Chinese immigrants are leaving due to economic conditions in China and its strict lockdowns, Yahoo News reported.

“Again, at best, they’re here for a better life,” Judd said. “At worst, they’re here to be part of the Chinese government to infiltrate our own country.”
