John Bolton’s attempt to take down Donald Trump just backfired in a major way

    Many believe Donald Trump made a big mistake when he chose John Bolton as his National Security Advisor.

    Since his departure from the White House Bolton has been an outspoken critic of Donald Trump.

    But recently John Bolton attempted to take down Donald Trump but it backfired in a major way.

    Most of Donald Trump’s most ardent supporters were stunned when President Trump named John Bolton to serve as his National Security Advisor in 2018.

    To no one’s great surprise, it didn’t last long.

    Bolton left the Trump administration after just over a year in the role.

    Since then Bolton has been vocal about his dislike of former president Donald Trump.

    Bolton even wrote a book about his time in the Trump administration and volunteered to testify before the Senate during Trump’s impeachment hearings.

    But recently, Bolton made a statement he thought would hurt Trump but it did quite the opposite.

    In an interview with CNN about the sham Jan 6 hearings, Bolton admitted that he had helped plan attempted coups in foreign countries.

    President Donald Trump was being accused of inciting violence in a last-ditch bid to remain in power after losing the 2020 election.

    Bolton however shocked CNN’s Jake Tapper and suggested Trump was not competent enough to pull off a “carefully planned coup d’etat.”

    Bolton added, “As somebody who has helped plan coups d’etat – not here but you know (in) other places – it takes a lot of work. And that’s not what he (Trump) did.”

    Tapper, seemingly thoroughly surprised, asked Bolton which attempts he was referring to.

    “I’m not going to get into the specifics,” Bolton said, before of course getting specific and mentioning Venezuela.

    “It turned out not to be successful. Not that we had all that much to do with it but I saw what it took for an opposition to try and overturn an illegally elected president and they failed,” he said very matter of fact.

    In 2019, Bolton, while national security adviser, publicly supported Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido’s call for the military to back his effort to oust socialist President Nicolas Maduro, arguing that Maduro’s re-election was illegitimate.

    Ultimately the effort failed, and the socialist Maduro remained in power.

    “I feel like there’s other stuff you’re not telling me (beyond Venezuela),” the Tapper said, prompting the following reply from Bolton: “I’m sure there is.”

    It’s highly unusual for U.S. officials to openly acknowledge their role in actively promoting unrest in foreign countries.

    John Bolton, who’s served in highest positions in the U.S. government, including UN ambassador, and National Security Advisor, on the other hand, just casually boasts about how he’s done just that.
