In a withering behind-the-scenes portrayal, President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser John Bolton accused him of sweeping misdeeds. Bolton, a longtime foreign policy hawk who Trump fired in September last year over policy differences, also said that the US president had expressed a willingness to halt criminal investigations to give “personal favours to dictators he liked,” according to a book excerpt published in the New York Times ahead of its release. Trump hit back at Bolton, calling him “a liar” in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. The paper also published excerpts Wednesday of the book, titled “The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir,” as did the Washington Post.
