Striking back at the election-year attack campaign being waged by the disgruntled John Bolton, President Donald Trump said he was only good in the White House to scare other countries afraid of being bombed.

"I'll tell you, he was good for one thing: Everyone thought he was crazy because all he wants to do was bomb people – 'let's fight Russia, let's fight China, take them on at the same time,'" Trump told host Sean Hannity in a Fox News town hall taped live Thursday in Green Bay, Wisconsin. "He's crazy.

"When I walked into a room with him – I knew that – when they saw Bolton, they always give me what I wanted, because they said: 'Trump's going to drop bombs on me; he's got this maniac with him.'

"So in a way, he helped me in terms of a negotiation."

Trump admitted to one thing Bolton claimed in "The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir," he stopped listening to the advice of his national security adviser. Trump said he did that because Bolton refused to admit invading Iraq was a mistake.

And, the fact, Bolton could never muster a smile, Trump added.

"But seriously, he didn't do a good job," Trump concluded to Hannity. "He wasn't smart, he wasn't sharp, and he's the only man I think I've ever met – I knew him for a year, a short time – I don't think I ever saw him smile once. I said to him: 'John, do you ever smile?'

"And it tells you something about somebody."
