Book: Trump Called For Executing “Scumbag” Reporters

The Hill reports:

Former White House national security adviser John Bolton reportedly claims in his forthcoming memoir that President Trump called for “scumbag” journalists to be executed.

Bolton said that Trump made the comments during a meeting last summer in New Jersey, according to a copy of Bolton’s book obtained by The Washington Post. During the meeting, Trump said that journalists should be jailed so they would have to expose their sources, Bolton wrote.

“These people should be executed. They are scumbags,” Trump said, according to Bolton’s account chronicled in the memoir, “The Room Where It Happened.”
