"My own opinion, and I can't prove this, I think he has trouble with women leaders."

Mr Bolton also said Mr Trump "had trouble" with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

He added: "These are not substantive disagreements. These are personality issues.

"But because of the way Trump looks at relations with other leaders, he has enormous difficulty distinguishing between the personal relationship he has with the leader of another country, and the fundamental US relationship with the other country as a whole."

When asked if the president was sexist, Mr Bolton said: "Time and again, we seemed to run into that difficulty."

"He didn't want to hear bad news about his buddy, (Chinese President) Xi Jinping.

"He didn't want to hear the truth about China covering up the extent of the threat of the coronavirus. He didn't want to hear about China, maybe not fulfilling its terms under the limited trade deal he negotiated.

USA: "Traitor": Pompeo attacks Bolton for disclosure book

 USA: © Bloomberg The US Secretary of State has severely attacked the former National Security Advisor on Twitter. The Foreign Minister accuses the former security advisor of violating the people's trust. He spread "lies" and "half-truths". After explosive allegations by John Bolton about US President Donald Trump , Secretary of State Mike Pompeo sharply attacks the former National Security Advisor.

"It's all about Donald Trump and it follows from that that his re-election is the thing most on his mind.

"In many respects he has a very short attention span. Not when it comes to his re-election. His attention span there is infinite."

And he claimed other world leaders like Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korea's Kim Jong Un "could see through him" during talks.

"I don't think they were overt about it. I think they knew exactly who the mark was on the American side of the table and that over an extended period of time is very damaging potentially for the United States."

Mr Bolton also indicated Mr Trump had made no progress on the question of North Korea giving up its nuclear weapons.

He said: "He got nothing for it after two years of effort. The whole thing came to nothing but a series of photo opportunities, which, with all due respect, I think was entirely predictable."

He accused Mr Trump of being "ignorant" when it comes to foreign policy, including, he claimed, when Mr Trump suggested he could sit down with Iran's leader and strike a nuclear deal in one day.

Mr Bolton said: "It's just not true. So when I think of the prospect of him on the other side of the table from Vladimir Putin negotiating a strategic arms treaty, I'm very worried for the United States."
