Donald Trump isn’t “fit for office” and lacks the “competence” to serve as president in part because he’s solely focused on his political fortunes, former national security adviser John Bolton said.

Bolton’s comments in an interview with ABC News come as he’s promoting his tell-all memoir, which delivers withering criticism of Trump’s leadership from one of his former top advisers. The president has attempted to discredit Bolton, tweeting early Thursday that his book is “made up of lies & fake stories.”
