WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump said Tuesday he fired national security adviser John Bolton , citing strong disagreements on a number of policy issues.

Trump tweeted that he told Bolton Monday night his services were no longer needed at the White House and said Bolton submitted his resignation on Tuesday morning. Trump said that he “disagreed strongly” with many of Bolton’s suggestions, “as did others in the administration.”

Bolton responded in a tweet of his own that he offered to resign Monday “and President Trump said, ‘Let’s talk about it tomorrow.’”

Bolton’s ouster came as a surprise to many in the White House. Just an hour before Trump’s tweet, the press office announced that Bolton would join Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in a briefing.

Bolton was always an unlikely pick to be Trump’s third national security adviser, with a world view seemingly ill-fit to the president’s isolationist “America First” pronouncements.

He’s espoused hawkish foreign policy views dating back to the Reagan administration and became a household name over his vociferous support for the Iraq War as the U.S. ambassador to the U.N. under George W. Bush. Bolton even briefly considered running for president in 2016, in part to make the case against the isolationism that Trump would come to embody.

Inside the administration he advocated caution on the president’s whirlwind rapprochement with North Korea and against Trump’s decision last year to pull U.S. troops out of Syria. He masterminded a quiet campaign inside the administration and with allies abroad to convince Trump to keep U.S. forces in Syria to counter the remnants of the Islamic State and Iranian influence in the region.

Bolton was named Trump’s third national security adviser in April 2018 after the departure of Army Gen. H.R. McMaster.

Comments
DO, you should show respect to the President of the United States. Obviously, you do not comprehend how human beings are taught to respect other human beings. Normal people are not vulgar rude or insulting. You should have higher standards for yourself. Instead, you have no standards at all. Your punk like behavior is on stage for all to see. You don’t use the T2C name anymore. Is it because you were expelled from here for vulgar posts under the T2C name? You should have learned a lesson from your expulsion. Clean up your dirty act.
Your continued nonsensical, psychotic rants condemning my opinion really don't mean a thing to me. For criticism to mean anything to the receiver, the source has to be respected. You're joke, a loser and an idiot. Like ʇɹnɯp, you inspire nothing but contempt. Respect never enters the picture.
This TN site is for polite social discourse. Normal people are supposed to come here to learn and share ideas through friendly nice posts. It is ok to disagree. It is ok to have some give and take. This site has minimal rules (if any?) to follow. You, DO, who was expelled from here for vulgar behavior as T2C, have failed your whole community with your disrespectful garbage posts. You have an irrational hatred and a shocking lack of respect that you should be ashamed of. In addition you display grammar errors such as, “You’re joke...”, from your above post, that reveal the real “you” for all to see. You insult everyone, including President Trump, while you can not achieve an Elementary School intellect. I am going to shine the spotlight on you. You have been expelled twice from here, and you still have not learned a lesson. You, DO/T2C need a mental intervention. How can you hate someone that you never even met? What is the source of your hatred? How could you have evolved to have no respect for yourself or others? If you are a juvenile, maybe you should wait to post again until your brain develops. If you are an adult, you should join the military. You will learn respect there...and, you will learn how to use that big mouth. You are crying out to everyone that you need a mental evaluation. How can we help you? The economy is great. Tens of thousands of people show up at Trump Rallies all over America. You are looking at 6 more years of Trump as President. Then the Trump Dynasty will take over. T2C/DO your little dirty head will explode when that happens. Surrender now to Trump. Trump is your master. Learn respect and bow to the King of America...Trump. Republicans love you DO. Republicans will help you with a mental intervention. How about today?
There's only one thing more dangerous to America than loser ʇɹnɯd and his incompetence, instability and std infested family... His encephalitic supporters. The Taliban deserves more respect , at least they stick to their values. ʇɹnɯd is a waffling, lying tantrum throwing little puss.
Who, really, is the “lying tantrum throwing little puss?” Today is the day for a mental evaluation for you DO. America does not like bullies, like you. Your hatred is mental dysfunction out of control. Remember, everyone sees your downward spiral. Stop embarrassing yourself. Allow us to help you. You are a threat to yourself and your community. Republicans will help you.
One nut job Bolton being fired by the head Nut Man in Chief trump. Who cares both are true idiots.
