President Trump Fires National Security Adviser John Bolton

Published by Matt Fishman on

President Trump has announced the firing of National Security Adviser John Bolton. President Trump stated he “disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions, as did others in the Administration, and therefore…. asked [him] for his resignation.” Former National Security Adviser John Bolton responded to the news saying he “offered to resign last night” and President Trump said, “Let’s talk about it tomorrow.” Bolton was appointed as National Security Adviser on April 9, 2018, and had long been in disagreement with President Trump and other members of the administration on multiple security issues. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo commented today that there were “definitely places where Ambassador Bolton and [himself] disagreed.” U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin noted how the former security adviser and “the President’s view of the Iraq War are very different.” President Trump says he “will be naming a new National Security Adviser next week.”
