In "The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir", John Bolton details his time as national security advisor and claims Trump said journalists, who he called "scumbags", should be jailed to force them to expose their sources and that they "should be executed".

The Trump administration has submitted an application to a district court on Wednesday to get an injunction and an emergency restraining order to stop the book from being published.
