    Trump says he fired national security advisor John Bolton — but Bolton says he ‘offered to resign’

    “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, and therefore I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning,” Trump said in a tweet.
    Trump says he fired national security advisor John Bolton

    Donald J. Trump on Twitter: "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, and therefore...."

    From Trump's twitter and now reported on most outlets like CNN as well....

    I am not sure if this is good news or bad news......

    Something I agree with

    I expect Bolton was behind the UK seizing the Iranian oil tanker in an attempt to start a war

    Probably was not a good fit in this administration. Trump is a negotiator, Bolton is not.

    Yes, Bolton disagreed with his inviting the Taliban to Camp David and said so. This is probably the reason.

    I can't wait to see Bolton back on Fox News.

    Give him time. He shines brightest when he's negotiating bankruptcy terms.
