President Donald Trump fired National Security Advisor John Bolton because the two men had strong disagreements over policy.

Bolton fired back on Twitter. He claimed he offered Trump his resignation. Trump supposedly responded, “Let’s talk about it tomorrow.”

Bolton served as Trump’s third national security advisor during this term. He first hired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and then H.R. McMaster. He brought on Bolton in April 2018.

Bolton also worked in the administrations of President Ronald Reagan, President George H.W. Bush, and President George W. Bush. He was the U.S. Representative to the United Nations from 2005 to 2006. Before that, he served “as an undersecretary of state for arms control and international security from 2001 to 2005.”

Trump did not specify the disagreements, but Fox News speculated it might have something to do with the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan.
