National Security Adviser John Bolton Is Out

President Trump has fired National Security Adviser John Bolton. In a series of tweets, the president said he informed Bolton Monday night that “his services are no longer needed” at the White House. He also said he disagreed strongly with many of Bolton’s suggestions as did others in the administration.
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. I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week.

Meanwhile, the president’s decision to fire John Bolton is garnering support from lawmakers on both sides of the isle. In a tweet Tuesday, Senator Rand Paul commended the president for his decision.
In another message to Twitter, Democrat congressman Gerry Connolly said Bolton was the wrong choice from the beginning.

Bolton was the wrong choice from the beginning-a disruptive force in a destructive foreign policy. His firing - the 4th national security advisor in less than 3 years - underscores the chaos, turmoil, and incompetence of this Admin that continues to endanger US national security.
