The President of the United States, Donald Trump, said this Saturday that his former national security adviser, John Bolton, will pay a “high price” for the publication of his memoirs, the contents of which the president branded as illegal.
What did Trump say?
“Bolton violated the law and has been called and rebuked for doing so, with a really high price to pay,” Trump tweeted.
He added that “he likes to drop bombs on people and kill them. Now they will drop bombs on him!”
On the same social network he stated that “GREAT COURT WINS against Bolton. Obviously, with the book already delivered and leaked to many people and the media, nothing the highly respected judge could have done to stop him … BUT, they put forward and powerful statements and rulings on MONEY and BREAK RATING “.
All of this comes after a judge refused to block publication of the book.
