Trump says he fired national security advisor John Bolton
He made it a full year longer than I expected.
I’ll bet Bolton screwed up the Taliban meeting, somehow.
From what I’ve heard in the last few weeks it looks like Bolton wasn’t on board with DJT on too many things. Meaning that this is not a surprise.
..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.
Meanwhile, at NR:
Why We Need John Bolton
YEP!! I’ll bet Bolton was NOT very loyal to Trump’s agenda.
Blowback from Taliban kerfuffle?
He made it a full year longer than ‘HE’ expected!
I never did like that cheesy stache.
It will be very interesting to see who replaces him. No names come quickly to my mind.
Bolton the WARHAWK FIRED!!!
I was surprised that Bolton was ever hired.
If he announced the firing, must mean it was serious.
I read that Bolton did not help at all with NK.
Bottom line, Trump can defuse NK, Iran, and Afghan situations if he follows his instincts.
Now maybe President Trump can begin the process of bringing the troops home where their families are awaiting them.
We can hope.
Dang. Bolton didn’t even get to destroy any countries. You know he’s pissed.
“Meanwhile, at NR:
Why We Need John Bolton”
Rush Limbaugh just guessed that was the reason.
Probably not a big surprise. Actually like some of Bolton’s positions, but in general he has always been a bit too much of a warhawk, and we really need to be a lot better about picking and choosing our battles, rather than intervening everywhere. Other Freepers guesses about NK are probably the trigger on this - the Taliban thing might be a factor as well but Bolton has been more conspicuous on the NK issue.
Msybe some more of our troops will make it home now.
