Bolton's Revelations About Trump

Lots of discussion about Bolton's forthcoming book. From Vox, the most "disturbing" revelations.

- Trump directly asked China to buy US products to help him get reelected.
- He explicitly agreed with China's internment of its Muslim population.
- His international knowledge is very weak, specifically he did not know the UK was a nuclear power, that Finland was not part of Russia and that Venezuela was not under US control.
- Trump absolutely was ready to pull the US out of NATO.
- He told China’s President that Americans wanted him to get rid of the two-term limit and journalists should be jailed.
- Everything the President was accused of re Ukraine during the impeachment trial was true and was only part of his side dealings for personal gain.

I think the sad part is while shocking, none of this is remotely surprising.

@engineer,
It's maddening that even these revelations will fall on deaf ears.

@engineer,
The Republican Party and all the Trump sycophants in government and out...

...are a disgrace to our Republic.

Our generation has just temporary custody of it...and we are failing miserably with these miscreants leading the way to the cliff.

I can only hope they get the thrashing they deserve at the polls in November. Anything less than a landslide in the presidential contest...and a significant move up in both houses of congress (and state contests) would be dismal.

Not sure how we have slid to where we are, but if we do not have the character to pull ourselves out, we deserve the fate that will almost surely come to fruition.

I already have the book on pre-order. If I ever thought in a million years I would read a book written by Bolton during the Iraq war... When you start to look at rabid right wing republican conservative war hawks as being better than the current "republicans" we have now, you know we are in bad shape.

That is the part that kills me. Worse, people will hear and actively defend it.

Trump and this disgusting, inept administration...

...a pandemic out-of-control here in our country.

What next?

A super volcano?

Giant asteroid strike?

others will simply deny any of it happened because in their eyes the Mueller Report exonerated 45...

@justaguy2,
I’m not either, during the sham trial there were rumours that Bolton’s book would contain such revelations. This just confirms what we all suspected.

@izzythepush,
Why do you think the republicans refused to call wittnesses to Trumps trial. If all trials were conducted like this no one would ever be convicted of a crime.

@justaguy2,
If Bolton thinks they should have widened the scope of the impeachment he should have testified instead of feeding the rumour mill.
