Former National Security Adviser John Bolton mercilessly criticizes President Donald Trump in his new book but writes that he had a White House ally in the vice president.

From China and Russia to Syria and Venezuela, Bolton and Vice President Mike Pence wanted to take hard lines against oppressive regimes while Trump sought to cut deals and appease totalitarian leaders, Bolton says in his memoir scheduled for release Tuesday.

“As Vice President, Pence maintained the strong views on national security that he’d had during his years in the House of Representatives, and I regarded him as a consistent ally,” Bolton wrote in “The Room Where it Happened: A White House Memoir.”

Bolton argued for keeping Pence on the 2020 ticket when Trump asked if he should replace him with Nikki Haley, the former United Nations ambassador.

Bolton called it a bad idea to jettison someone so loyal without a guarantee that it would pay off at the ballot box.

“That seemed to be Trump’s thinking as well,” he wrote.

Pence's office didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

If you're short of time and cash, you can skip buying the book and just read the transcript of Raddatz's interview with Bolton.

Bolton is a monster. I don't see how anyone cares what's in his book.

I may or may not have a pdf copy of a certain book that I may or may not be happy to send you. So if you'd like to know what a certain someone has to say that he couldn't bring himself to say to Mueller or during the impeachment trial or just about any time before now, when it might have mattered (but when, alas, he wouldn't have gotten paid), just shoot me a pm. (This is not something I would normally post and I hope I don't offend our WTF author contingent, but i truly believe that standing by idly while our country is betrayed and doing nothing about it does not deserve to be rewarded with a royalty check.)

A tell-all book about President Donald Trump’s family written by his niece has been temporarily blocked by a New York judge after a lawsuit claimed disclosures in the manuscript violated a 20-year-old secrecy agreement.

A temporary restraining order against Mary Trump and her publisher, Simon & Schuster, was issued Tuesday by Justice Hal Greenwald in Poughkeepsie, New York. Mary Trump was ordered to explain by July 10 why the judge shouldn’t issue a longer-lasting injunction against the book sought by the president’s brother, Robert Trump, who filed the lawsuit.
