Trump Jokes About John Bolton Losing His Job After Getting ‘All the Credit’ on Syria Strike

If Sunday night’s blockbuster ABC interview with James Comey got to President Donald Trump, he’s not letting on.

The president was in a jolly, joking mood Monday afternoon speaking at a small business roudntable at Hialeah, FL. A few minutes into his remarks, he took the opportunity to shout out his new National Security Adviser.

“By the way, John Bolton is here,” Trump said. “We just had a big successful hit. John.”

Trump, of course, was referring to Friday night’s targeted air strike in Syria — conducted in tandem with coalition allies.

“John, that’s pretty good. I didn’t expect that,” Trump said of the applause. “I’m a little jealous. Are you giving him all the credit?”

“You know, that means the end of his job,” Trump added, to laughter.
