President Trump took to Twitter claiming that he asked John Bolton for his resignation last night.
….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.

Bolton claims he wasn’t fired:
I offered to resign last night and President Trump said, “Let’s talk about it tomorrow.”

This decision will not sit well with the Neo-Cons in the party.
This is terrible for the White House. Bolton was correct about the Taliban; State wasn’t. Bolton has been a hawkish voice for a tough national security policy, and his ouster likely signals that Trump’s approach will be significantly softer from this point forward. https://t.co/g13Shw46eW

However, the more anti-war wing will support this:
I commend @realDonaldTrump for this necessary action. The President has great instincts on foreign policy and ending our endless wars. He should be served by those who share those views. https://t.co/XEBwzySxac

Look I didn’t have much of an issue with Bolton. I thought he said a lot of good things in public and seemed to support President Trump’s domestic agenda. With that being said I trust President Trump and his decisions. He clearly thought Bolton was not pushing his administration in the right direction.
The part I am worried about is what comes next between these two. Both Trump and Bolton’s tweets show that this was not an amicable breakup.
