Chris Wallace predicts Bolton book will be 'a one-week story' that fades

The "Fox News Sunday" anchor made the remarks on "Outnumbered Overtime" during a discussion with anchor Harris Faulkner.

"What really strikes me, Harris, is I don’t think this book is going to have a lot of impact on Donald Trump’s political fortune," Wallace said.


"I think people are so locked in on the president — they either think he has helped save the country and helped build the economy and will rebuild it after the coronavirus, or they think he is the last person who should be president," Wallace added. "And I just don’t think this is going to have a lot of impact. My guess is this is a one-week story and then it kind of fades away.”

The new book from Bolton, who served as Trump's national security adviser from April 2018 to September 2019, is set for publication next week.

Excerpts emerged Wednesday, with a range of accusations from Bolton, including one that said Trump asked China's president to help with his reelection.

Trump and the White have responded by ripping Bolton's memoir, with the president calling it "a compilation of lies and made up stories." The White House is also attempting to block the book's release through legal avenues.

Bolton has two national interviews lined up before the book's Tuesday release. He'll appear on ABC News with Martha Raddatz, for an interview scheduled to air Sunday, followed by Fox News's "Special Report" with anchor Bret Baier on Tuesday.
