Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In a typical move, Trump was using Bolton's penchant to dress him down in public:

`Is Ireland one of those countries you want to invade': Trump once `joked' John Bolton wants `to nuke them all'

In a conversation that included the Irish prime minister, Trump asked Bolton, "John, is Ireland one of those countries you want to invade?"

The scene was during the annual St. Patrick's Day visit. Typically it's a photo-op, a handshake, and men in green ties with a shamrock sprig in their jacket pocket. Trump managed to turn it into an awkward scene for everyone.

According to the report, Trump likes to interact in this way with Bolton, and at times, that involves awkward comments in front of foreign heads of state.
