Former NSA official John Bolton warned that national security is ‘under attack from within’
John Bolton, former security adviser to President Donald Trump, on Tuesday Nov. 26, posted a message from his Twitter account in which he pointed out the need for the United States to make national security a priority issue.
After announcing his return to Twitter a week ago, Bolton warned that while America was distracted, its enemies were not: “It probably goes without saying, that our country’s commitment to our national security priorities is under attack from within. America is distracted. Our enemies are not. We need to make U.S. national security a priority.”

The former security adviser to the Trump administration had previously accused the White House of withholding his account, claiming that he had lost access to it after resigning.
According to the New York Post, a senior White House official said, “The White House did not block Mr. Bolton from accessing his personal Twitter account and wouldn’t have the technical means to do so.”
John Bolton left office last September after being fired by the president. However, Bolton accused Trump of lying, pointing out that he had offered a resignation and that the president replied that they would deal with the issue later.
Last week in a “Fox & Friends” interview, host Brian Kilmeade asked the president about Bolton’s recent Twitter postings, asking if the White House had blocked access to his account, to which the president responded: “No, of course not. Of course not. No, I actually had a good relationship with John. We disagreed on some things and some methods, but I actually had a good relationship,” as reported by the New York Post.
