President Trump tweeted Tuesday that he has asked national security adviser John Bolton to resign.
"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."
What they're saying: Bolton tweeted that he offered Trump his resignation on Monday night, and that the president said they would discuss tomorrow. If Trump did not notify Bolton of his decision, it would mark yet another instance of a high-ranking administration official being fired via tweet.
