US President Donald Trump on Tuesday tweeted the dismissal of his national security advisor, John Bolton, with whom he disagreed on a number of hot topics, from Iran to North Korea to by Afghanistan.
"I informed John Bolton last night that we no longer needed his services in the White House," tweeted Donald Trump, just an hour after the announcement by the executive of a press briefing that was participate John Bolton with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. "I disagreed with many of his suggestions, like others in this administration," said the president, referring to this lawyer trained especially for his mustache.
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.- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 10, 2019
Disagreements on North Korea
"I asked John his resignation, it was delivered to me this morning," he continued, assuring that he would appoint his successor next week. In a terse and enigmatic tweet, John Bolton simply indicated that he had offered to resign Monday night and that the president had said, "Let's talk about it tomorrow." This spectacular dismissal comes in a particularly tense climate between the United States and Iran, a case on which Donald Trump has sent contradictory signals in recent weeks, between extreme firmness and willingness to negotiate.
Former US ambassador to the UN, John Bolton was notoriously hostile to Donald Trump's outstretched hand to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and he was directly targeted in the spring of 2018 by the Pyongyang regime. . "We have already, in the past, evoked the personality of Bolton and we do not hide the disgust it inspires us," said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In the early 2000s, already, his extreme firmness on this issue had earned him to be treated as "human waste" in the North Korean press.
