- Donald Trump dismisses National Security Advisor John Bolton
- Afghanistan, Trump cancels the secret peace meeting with the Taliban
- New reshuffle for Trump: outside McMaster, inside Bolton new security adviser
Share11 September 2019Se Americans out of ten do not want the re-election of Donald Trump at the White House in the 2020 presidential elections. The figure emerges from a survey conducted by the research company Ssrs for CNN, released after Trump via the news of the dismissal of Twitter National Security Advisor John Bolton, who in turn had always responded via social media saying he was resigning. Bolton played a fundamental role in the security of the United States, so much so that for Trump it is the third change in not even three years as president. Bolton, 70, former UN ambassador, had replaced HR McMaster on 9 April 2018, who in turn had replaced Michael Flynn.

Now, according to the survey, 60% of Americans claim that tycoon does not deserve to be re-elected while its popularity remains unchanged: 39% of American citizens approve of its work while 55% do not judge its mandate in the White House positively . The survey also focused on Trump's work since taking office in the White House in January 2017 to the present: 45% of Americans (almost one in two) think that Trump has changed the country for the worse (+ 8% compared to beginning of 2019), while 33% said the President improved the conditions of the United States. The American electorate, according to the survey, is increasingly polarized: the work of the tycoon satisfies 73% of Republican voters (it was 71% in February) while seven Democrats out of ten (69%) consider the policies of the American President harmful. .

The fractures and misunderstandings between Trump and Bolton concerned above all North Korea, Venezuela, Afghanistan and finally Iran. So Trump decided to kill him because they didn't agree on these hot foreign policy issues. "This probably indicates that Trump is desperate for a series of agreements, however aesthetic, before the 2020 elections in Afghanistan, Iran and North Korea and sees Bolton as an obstacle," said Colin Kahl, former assistant of the Obama administration affiliated with the foreign policy advocacy group for America. "I thank John very much for his service. Next week I will appoint a new national security adviser," Trump wrote in his beloved Twitter.
Elections in North Carolina
Meanwhile, during the night, US President Donald Trump repeatedly tweeted to compliment two Republicans, Greg Murphy and Dan Bishop, respectively winners in the districts of North Carolina 03 and North Carolina 09. "A great night for the Republican party, congratulations to all" has written in uppercase Trump on Twitter, then proceeding to attack the CNN and MSNBC polls: "Fake news never wins!" and ending the social night with "two big victories this evening".
Greg Murphy won big, 62% to 37%, in North Carolina 03, and the Fake News barely covered the race. The win was bigger than anticipated - there was just nothing to look forward to. So we had TWO BIG VICTORIES tonight, Greg & Dan!- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 11, 2019
