Trump Fires John Bolton As National Security Adviser

John Bolton fired

President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that he has ousted John Bolton as his national security adviser.

In a series of tweets, Trump said that he told Bolton Monday night “that his services are no longer needed at the White House,” citing disagreements with many of Bolton’s suggestions.

“I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House. I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions, as did others in the Administration,” Trump tweeted.

“I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning. I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week,” Trump continued.

John Bolton, appointed in March 2018, was Trump’s third national security adviser.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
