Trump fires National Security Adviser John Bolton, says they 'disagreed strongly' on policy

President Trump announced Tuesday that he has fired National Security Adviser John Bolton, saying he “disagreed strongly” with his suggestions on a range of issues.

“I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House,” Trump tweeted Tuesday.

The two have had disagreements over a range of issues, perhaps most significantly on the plans for a troop drawdown in Afghanistan.

The president appointed Bolton to his post in March 2018, after removing H.R. McMaster.

Bolton became Trump’s third national security adviser, joining the administration in April 2018. McMaster had been appointed earlier in the administration to replace Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.

But Bolton fired back Tuesday, tweeting moments after the president that he offered his resignation on Monday evening, and said it was not immediately accepted by Trump.

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

Bolton, who previously served as a Fox News contributor, worked in the administrations of former Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush and served as a Bush lawyer during the 2000 Florida recount. Bolton also served as a U.S. permanent representative to the United Nations from 2005 to 2006, and as an undersecretary of state for arms control and international security from 2001 to 2005.

One source told Fox News Tuesday that many in the White House learned of Bolton's firing from the president's tweet Tuesday.

Bolton was/is a hammer. A hammer that will not be needed until after the 2020 election.

We will not be leaning on the DPRK for a while (going into the final round of meeting/talks relatively soon I assume.), and we sure as hell aren't getting involved militarily with Venezuela or Iran.

Bolton is the Warhawk Supreme. He knows it, DC knows it, and the World knows it. Functionally speaking, Bolton is/was the "bad/evil cop" to Trumps "reasonable cop".

Many non-interventionists will celebrate Trump "resisting NeoCon policies", while functionally there will be no real difference in policy compared to the pre-Bolton era. It will please a fair chunk of the electorate however.

Bolton also make a bunch of reforms to the National Security Council while he was there, and did not make many friends. Trump can go through and say that "oh my, these are not reforms that I wanted to make." And he "fires" Bolton, but then leave those reforms in place.

It is as simple as that.

I was pissed when he was brought on, so this really is a non-issue for me. Cue every leftie suddenly having an issue with Trump moving away from war-mongering.
I didn't like when he got appointed but ended up not really caring when nothing really bad happened and Trump made statements about reducing middle east involvement. Of course that didn't really happen, but maybe now that Bolton is out, steps will be taken in that direction. Overall, I don't think anyone but Ziocons will care
