Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton called Prime Minister Theresa May’s criticisms of President Donald Trump at the UN General Assembly “disappointing” and said he “doesn’t know what’s wrong” with her government.

Speaking on Sirius XM Patriot, Mr. Bolton discussed the British prime minister using her platform at the UN assembly to lecture and hector President Trump on pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord and the United States’s refugee policy, only days after a refugee allegedly bombed a London tube train.

Breitbart News Daily host and Breitbart London Editor in Chief Raheem Kassam asked Ambassador Bolton what “level of stupidity” May was exhibiting by insulting the main partner the UK will need in a post-Brexit world on the UN General Assembly stage.

“I don’t know what’s wrong with Theresa May’s government,” Bolton said. “It’s been increasingly disappointing to me.

“Were it not for the critical Brexit negotiations I think there would have been a revolt in the conservative party and in government. There would have been a revolt long ago.”

The prime minister has seen a negative reaction to advance previews of her forthcoming Florence speech, expected Friday afternoon, as it has been revealed she plans to keep the UK in the European Union until 2021.

A point of contention in the speech is expected to be the ‘divorce bill’ — a sum of money demanded by the EU from the UK as a price for leaving the bloc, the payment of which may be illegal in British law.

The former ambassador added that on the matter of the Paris agreement, it is ” just one more step by the global governance crowd who want to remove decision-making from sovereign nations.”

“The kind of decision-making Trump talked about on Tuesday, and put it in a supranational organisation, like their favourite, the European Union,” Mr. Bolton added.
