Trump Ousts John Bolton as National Security Advisor

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2019-09-11

President Donald Trump abruptly announced in a tweet Tuesday that he has asked national security adviser John Bolton to resign, noting that he "strongly disagreed with many" of Bolton's suggestions "as did others in the administration."

 

Speaking about the move, Trump said that he informed John Bolton last night that his services were no longer needed at the White House. The US President said that he strongly disagreed with Bolton on many issues and that is why fired him.

 

"I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week," Trump wrote.



 

The tweet came just one hour after the White House press office said Bolton was scheduled to appear at a Tuesday press briefing alongside Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

 

Bolton, however, maintains he offered to leave his post voluntarily, tweeting minutes after Trump's announcement, "I offered to resign last night and President Trump said, 'Let's talk about it tomorrow.'"

 

His resignation letter to Trump, dated Tuesday, was short and to the point with Bolton writing: 'I hereby resign, effective immediately, as Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs. Thank you for having afforded me this opportunity to serve our country."

 

Bolton was appointed last year in April. He had replaced HR McMaster who was in the officer from February 2017 to April 2018.
