Former national security adviser John Bolton on Thursday came to the defense of former chief of staff John Kelly after President Trump lashed out over a series of criticisms Kelly made during an appearance at a New Jersey university.
“John Kelly is an honorable man. John and I have disagreed at times, as is commonplace at senior government levels, but he has always served his country faithfully,” Bolton tweeted. “Conservatives especially have a responsibility to reject baseless attacks upon him.”
Bolton and Kelly overlapped during their time at the White House, and their relationship was not always cordial. The two reportedly engaged in a shouting match in October 2018 during a heated argument about immigration.
But they have defended each other at points after they both came under attack from Trump.
