UPDATE: Bolton says Trump NEVER asked for his resignation — BREAKING: Trump FIRES John Bolton

Trump has just tweeted that he’s fired John Bolton as his advisor, saying he strongly disagreed with many of his suggestions…

This comes on the heels of reporting yesterday that Bolton vehemently disagreed with Trump over setting up a meeting with the Taliban at Camp David. That should tell you quite a bit.

What’s interesting is that Trump often says he likes having differing opinions around him. But now he’s firing Bolton? Sounds like more than just a disagreement.

I thought it was fantastic the day that Trump hired Bolton. He’s as solid as they come and I think it says something not so good about Trump that he’s dumping Bolton like this.



 
UPDATE: Bolton added this…

 
UPDATE 2: John Bolton has been busy texting people telling them he was NOT fired:

 
UPDATE 3: Just to make it a little clearer, Bolton said Trump NEVER asked for his resignation…

So essentially Bolton is saying he couldn’t work for Trump anymore and offered his resignation, and Trump is wanting to make it look like he fired Bolton because of his ego.

Ugh Trump.
