Bolton: Trump's not 'fit for office,' doesn't have 'competence to carry out the job'

President Donald Trump is not "fit for office" and doesn't have "the competence to carry out the job," his former national security adviser John Bolton told ABC News in an exclusive interview.

In an explosive new book about his 17 months at the White House, Bolton characterizes Trump as "stunningly uninformed," ignorant of basic facts and easily manipulated by foreign adversaries.

But his assessment that Trump is not "fit" to be president is among the most stunning indictments of a sitting president by one of their own top advisers in American history.

Wow.

3. Has anyone researched just how many time Trump got taken in a business deal? He's

renowned for screwing people. There's no way he hasn't been burned big time by other fraudsters. Being laughed at for that would really flip him out.

4. So what the fuck did you do about that, Stache?

You had a chance to discuss that with Mr Schiff.

8. That may actually end up helping us.

Had Bolton testified I suspect the Senate would have still acquitted and mostly forgotten by now. By not testifying, this book coming out now gives more credibility to the Democrats impeachment efforts and perhaps persuade more voters that Trump needs to go.

Dont get me wrong, I would have wanted Bolton to testify, but given the situation, this might turn out for the best.

10. It has to help.

This is stunning evidence that backs up everything Democrats have been saying about Trump since he was elected.

14. Very true but at some point with all these shocking stories coming out..

many voters who might have been on the fence will finally say "enough, I cannot vote for that man" and tune out until Nov.

16. Yeah, I dont know either.

Biden is no Obama but this election is about getting rid of Trump. If that doesnt inspire one to vote then I dont think we can reach them. Perhaps a youthful, energetic, charismatic VP might help.

17. Maybe. I was still a Green when I voted for Obama. I was torn between supporting my party and

helping to elect the first African American president and his adorable family into the White House. My Dad was also a Green and so bummed that I was even dithering on this, but I pointed out that we didnt know if there was another SCOTUS decision in this election, like the one that gave us **, but Id be damned if Id let Sarah Palin anywhere near the White House.

But he feared he'd sell fewer copies of his book if he said this before it came out.

7. I don't think we need Bolton to tell us this information

It's been apparent from the start that Trump doesn't have the capacity to be president. He should have testified when he had the chance.

taking a job inside Trumps administration.

What does that say about you, Bolton?

20. So Trump is incompetent as president,

yet Bolton didn't do or say anything until he could get his book published. Wow, that's some patriot.
