Trump sacks National Security Adviser Bolton, citing disagreements

Washington: Donald Trump has sacked National Security Advisor John Bolton on Tuesday citing strong disagreement over handling foreign policy on Iran, Afghanistan and North Korea.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday has discharged John Bolton from the advisership. It is believed that differences in approach in regards to Iran, Afghanistan and North Korea resulted in the dismissal of John Bolton. President Trump tweeted that the United States will no longer be requiring the services of John Bolton.

“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,” Trump tweeted on Tuesday, adding that he will name a new advisor next week.

 

John Bolton, however, tweeted that he had tendered his resignation and Trump said, “let’s talk about it tomorrow.”

Bolton started his career with U.S President Ronald Reagon, but it was during the tenure of George W. Bush where he earned the title of foreign policy hawk, by backing Bush’s decision to invade Iraq. U.S president, Donald Trump often joked about Bolton’s image as a militarist by saying, “John has never seen a war he doesn’t like.”

John Bolton was Donald Trump’s third National Security Advisor. He had replaced Micheal Flynn and HR McMaster.President Donald Trump will declare his next advisor on National Security by next week.

It is reported that President Trump did not like the hawkish policies of Bolton. Trump often rebuked Bolton in meetings by saying, “You all know the great John Bolton. He’ll bomb you. He’ll take out your whole country,” to foreign dignitaries.
