  • Donald Trump fires NSA John Bolton, says ‘disagreed strongly’ with his suggestions

Bolton's ouster came as a surprise to many White House employees. Apparently, the only thing Trump wanted to talk was to tell Bolton not to let the door hit him on the way out because the President simply and unceremoniously announced the firing over Twitter in the morning. The deal had been negotiated by the Obama administration to limit Iran's nuclear program in exchange for easing sanctions, and some in the administration favored staying in the agreement. They had "connected well", people familiar with the meeting had said then. Speaking at an unrelated briefing at the White House, Pompeo acknowledged that he had often disagreed with Bolton on issues.

Pompeo said he did not want to discuss palace intrigue in the Trump administration.

"In all three" - North Korea, Iran and Venezuela - "Bolton wanted a war and the president didn't", Cutz said. "I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning".

Bolton is one of the most fervent pro-regime-change bureaucrats in Washington, D.C., and his addition to Trump's inner circle brought fears that the president's anti-interventionist inclinations would disappear.

Bolton was sacked less than two hours before he had been due to appear at a briefing alongside Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. "I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week".

Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., said the move was a cause for worry.

The president appeared to have taken on the Afghanistan portfolio himself and cut some of his advisers - including Bolton - out of the matter.

Bolton, a controversial former USA ambassador to the United Nations, was Trump's third national security advisor following retired Army Gen. H.R. McMaster and retired Army Gen. Mike Flynn.

Administration spokesman Hogan Gidley confirmed the appointment. In December 2018, Trump announced that the USA would be withdrawing military forces from the country, only to have Bolton condition that withdrawal on a Turkish agreement to not attack Kurdish forces in Syria.

Thanking Bolton for his services at the White House, he said will name a new National Security Advisor next week.

During his time at the State Department under the administration of Republican former President George W. Bush, Bolton kept a defused hand grenade on his desk.

The single biggest factor in getting Bolton the job was Sheldon Adelson, whose weighty political checkbook has won him much influence over Trump's policies.
