Former national security adviser John Bolton bashed President Trump during a closed-door private speech last week and said Ivanka and Jared Kushner could convince the president to "rewrite his legacy" and nominate a liberal like Lawrence Tribe to the Supreme Court.

From NBC News:
At one point in his closed-door remarks, Bolton was asked what he thinks will happen in January 2021 if Trump is re-elected, people present for his remarks said. Bolton responded by taking a swipe at Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and Ivanka Trump — both of whom are senior White House advisers — and at Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., three people familiar with his remarks said.

Bolton said Trump could go full isolationist — with the faction of the Republican Party that aligns with Paul’s foreign policy views taking over the GOP — and could withdraw the U.S. from NATO and other international alliances, three people present for his remarks said.

He also suggested that Kushner and Ivanka Trump could convince the president to rewrite his legacy and nominate a liberal like Lawrence Tribe — a Harvard Law professor who has questioned Trump’s fitness for office and was a legal adviser to Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign — to the Supreme Court, the people present for Bolton's speech said.

Bolton said, with an eye roll that suggested he doesn’t take them seriously, that Kushner and Ivanka Trump could do so in an attempt to prove they had real influence and were in the White House representing the people they want to be in social circles with at home in New York City, the people present for his remarks said.

Those present said that at that point, the audience appeared shocked.
I remember cringing during Trump's campaign all the way back in 2015 or early 2016 when he said he liked John Bolton. He said it a few times. I believe he said something like he enjoyed watching him on TV.

He seemed to have hired him to act as a "bad cop" to his "good cop" in international relations. Instead, he sabotaged peace talks with North Korea and worked to sabotage his entire presidency from within.

As to whether Javanka could convince Trump to nominate a liberal to the Supreme Court, they've convinced him to do many stupid things in the past.
