Hayward: Bolton Offers Nitpicky Criticism of Trump While Feeding Media’s Scandal Culture

Former national security adviser John Bolton published an excerpt from his new book The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir at the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday. The excerpt dealt with President Donald Trump’s China policy, and included the controversial claims that Trump asked Chinese President Xi Jinping for help winning re-election in 2020, and gave his blessing to the concentration camps China was building at the time for the Uyghur Muslims of Xinjiang province.
