Trump said «Bolton overreached the Venezuela case»


This Wednesday, US President Donald Trump said his former National Security ex-advisor, John Bolton, «went overboard» in politics toward Venezuela.

«I disagreed with John Bolton in his attitudes about Venezuela. I think it went a long way, ”Trump said in response to a question from Efe in the Oval Office.

Trump also said the statements about North Korea «hurt» their dialogue efforts with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

The president did not want to clarify, however, if now that Bolton has left office he would be willing to meet with Nicolás Maduro, and said: «I don’t want to talk about it.»

On Tuesday, the US president said through his Twitter account (@realDonaldTrump) that he had informed Bolton that «his services were no longer necessary in the White House,» because he «had not agreed» with his suggestions.
