Speaking to Nigel Farage on LBC, Mr Bolton praised Brexit as a “dagger pointed at the heart of the European Union project”.
He told the Ukip MEP yesterday that he made the trip to Britain on the day of the referendum “to experience a true declaration of independence”.
During an extraordinary interview, he said that the faster Britain leaves the bloc, the better for its future prosperity.
The former UN ambassador under George W Bush warned that any attempts to enter a transitional period after Brexit would ultimately be “misguided”.
“They fear that a successful Brexit will encourage others to do the same.”
The former diplomat advised the UK to adopt a “divide and conquer approach” during Brexit talks.
The US Brexit supporter added: “Talk to the business people in Europe with strong ties to Britain.
“They recognise that it is folly to hurt Britain during Brexit. Pit the business community against the theologians of Brussels.”
The former diplomat and close ally of Donald Trump said a bilateral transatlantic agreement across the would be the perfect chance for the White House to put in place the “international trade regime it seeks”.
Mr Bolton added: “This has the potential to be a world magnet for business. It could replace other agreements like NAFTA.”
