Bolton was one of Washington’s outspoken hawks for decades, and he was instrumental in the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal. But Bolton and the president frequently clashed -- even about the details of Bolton’s departure. Nick Schifrin reports and joins Judy Woodruff and Yamiche Alcindor.
