Former United States National Security Advisor John Bolton called President Donald Trump "not fit for office" and incompetent to fulfill the duties as the country's head of state, APA reports citing Teletrader.

Speaking in an interview for ABC News on Thursday, Bolton stressed that Trump's policies' "guiding principle" was finding benefits for him gaining a second term in office. "He was so focused on the reelection that longer-term considerations fell by the wayside," the former White House official claimed, especially noting that the US president was so focused on getting a photo opportunity with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, that he disregarded what effect such action may have on Washington's "bargaining position" in the negotiations with Pyongyang.

Bolton's book, "The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir," in which he has made several allegations against Trump, has been the subject of a US Department of Justice's lawsuit against the former administration advisor and its request to block it from being published. Trump harshly criticized Bolton during his recent media appearances.
