Former national security adviser John Bolton derided President Donald Trumpís daughter and son-in-law during a private speech last week and suggested his former bossí approach to U.S. policy on Turkey is motivated by personal or financial interests, several people who were present for the remarks told NBC News.

According to six people who were there, Bolton also questioned the merits of Trump applying his business acumen to foreign policy, saying such issues canít be approached like the win-or-lose edict that drives real estate deals: When one deal doesnít work, you move on to the next.

The description was part of a broader portrait Bolton outlined of a president who lacks an understanding of the interconnected nature of relationships in foreign policy and the need for consistency, these people said.

Bolton has kept a low public profile since he left the administration on Sept. 10, and efforts by Democrats to have him testify in the House impeachment inquiry into the president have stalled. But his pointed comments, at a private gathering last Wednesday at Morgan Stanleyís global investment event in Miami, painted a dark image of a president and his family whose potential personal gain is at the heart of decision-making, according to people who were present for his remarks.

Bolton served as Trumpís national security adviser for 17 months. The Ukraine scandal began to unfold about a week after his contentious departure. Trump said heíd fired him, though Bolton said he had resigned.

Multiple people who attended Boltonís private speech in Miami did not recall him mentioning Ukraine but said he told attendees that he had kept a resignation letter in his desk for three months. Bolton declined to comment for this article.

Bolton is a potential linchpin witness in the inquiry into Trumpís efforts to elicit help from the Ukrainian government to investigate the family of former Vice President Joe Biden, given his central role in the White House during that time. The impeachment inquiry moves to public testimony this week.

Current and former administration officials have testified about Boltonís strong opposition to the Ukraine pressure effort, which was led by Trumpís personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and allegedly involved withholding military aid and a presidential meeting until the Ukrainian government publicly committed to investigations, including into 2016 U.S. election interference and a business associated with Biden's son Hunter.

Boltonís lawyer teased his client's value last week in a letter to House Democrats that noted that the former national security adviser had been present for ďmany relevant meetings and conversationsĒ on Ukraine, including some that have yet to be disclosed to investigators. His lawyer, Charles Cooper, said Bolton is willing to testify if a federal court approves it and issues a ruling that essentially says he can defy the White Houseís position that he canít speak to Congress.

Bolton, a long-time foreign policy hawk who also served in the administration of President George W. Bush, expressed support in his private remarks for Trumpís stance against China on trade, people present said. But Trump and Bolton had a litany of policy differences ó on Iran, North Korea, Syria and, apparently, Ukraine.

Bolton told the gathering of Morgan Stanleyís largest hedge fund clients that he was most frustrated with Trump over his handling of Turkey, people who were present said. Noting the broad bipartisan support in Congress to sanction Turkey after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan purchased a Russian missile defense system, Bolton said Trumpís resistance to the move was unreasonable, four people present for his speech said.

Bolton said he believes there is a personal or business relationship dictating Trumpís position on Turkey because none of his advisers are aligned with him on the issue, the people present said.
