US President Donald Trump Fires National Security Adviser John Bolton

Trump fires national security advisor John Bolton

"I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning", Trump tweeted. Bolton pushed back on President Donald Trump's claim that he had been fired but the commander-in-chief, telling Kilmeade instead that he had resigned. He masterminded a quiet campaign inside the administration and with allies overseas to convince Trump to keep US forces in Syria to counter the remnants of the Islamic State and Iranian influence in the region. Most recently, it was reported that Bolton opposed the president's plan to meet with Taliban leaders at Camp David this week.

Mr Bolton is a veteran and controversial figure closely linked to the invasion of Iraq and other aggressive foreign policy decisions.

But Trump has been getting more and more irritated with Bolton over the past several months for his statements on Iran, Venezuela and now Afghanistan, a senior administration official told CNN Tuesday.

Bolton, in response to Trump's tweet, said he offered his resignation Monday night.

"I offered to resign last night and President Trump said, "Let's talk about it tomorrow", Mr Bolton tweeted".

Bolton had also served in the administration of George W. Bush as US ambassador to the United Nations. Bolton briefly considered running for president in 2016, in part to make the case against the isolationism that Trump would come to embody.

The Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, Ambassador John Bolton, has been fired. Trump said he will name a new person to the role next week.
