Trump Dismisses National Security Advisor John Bolton

US president says he will appoint a successor next week.

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he fired National Security Advisor John Bolton over stark policy disagreements, vowing to appoint a successor next week.
Trump did not indicate who he is considering to replace Bolton, but said on Twitter that he asked him for his resignation Monday night, a timeline quickly disputed by the ousted top aide.
"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. "I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week."
Bolton later issued a tweet of his own saying he offered to resign Monday night, "and President Trump said, 'Let's talk about it tomorrow'." That is starkly different from the president's account in which he said he requested the resignation.
Bolton, a controversial former U.S. ambassador to the UN, was Trump's third national security advisor following retired Army Gen. H.R. McMaster and retired Army Gen. Mike Flynn. Flynn lasted just 24 days before he left the administration in disgrace over revelations that he misled top officials, including Vice President Mike Pence, about his contacts with Russian officials.
Bolton was appointed in April 2018, and is Trump's longest-serving top national security aide.
He was expected to brief reporters alongside Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin later Tuesday afternoon in the White House press briefing room.
The White House's announcement of the briefing came just one hour before Trump announced Bolton's ouster. It is uncertain if he will still take part, or if that briefing will take place as scheduled.
Bolton has long advocated for a hawkish approach to foreign policy at odds with the president's isolationist penchants.
That has put him at loggerheads with Trump on a bevy of issues, including Venezuela, talks with North Korea, the U.S. withdrawal from Syria, and canceled peace talks with the Taliban that Trump had planned to take place at the presidential retreat at Camp David before he called off the meeting. -
