Trump ousts National Security Adviser John Bolton, says they ‘disagreed strongly’ on policy

Brooke Singman – Fox News Sept 10, 2019

President Trump announced Tuesday that he has fired National Security Adviser John Bolton, saying he “disagreed strongly” with his suggestions on a range of issues.

“I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House,” Trump tweeted.

“I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions, as did others in the Administration, and therefore I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning,” he continued. “I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week.”

While Bolton swiftly challenged Trump’s version of events — saying he offered to resign — the two have had well-known disagreements on a range of hot-button national security issues, perhaps most significantly on plans for a troop drawdown in Afghanistan.

Bolton’s removal comes after he was reportedly sidelined from high-level discussions about military involvement in Afghanistan. The Washington Post reported that Bolton was not invited to a high-profile meeting after opposing diplomatic efforts in the region. The Post reported that his opposition bothered Trump.

“Simply put, many of Bolton’s policy priorities did not align with POTUS,” a White House official told Fox News on Tuesday.

Comment — Sept 10, 2019

Bolton was a well-known hawk who has been pushing relentlessly for some sort of U.S. strike on Iran. That may not happen now and we would suggest Trump’s decision to replace Bolton largely boils down to disagreement over that one key issue.
Bolton’s removal follows hard on the heels of a meeting Trump had with his military commanders in the aftermath of Iran downing a U.S. Global Hawk drone.
According to some reports his military commanders dissuaded Trump from ordering a retaliatory strike on Iran. The consequences, they warned, could have been catastrophic and Trump seems to have listened and relieved himself of one of the loudest advocates for war with Iran. Ed

  1. Trump is good at hiring staff he disagrees with. So why did you hire Bolton Mr. President? Did Trump not know his loyalties and agenda. Does Trump read? Did Trump even read John Bolton’s dossier? If Trump makes decisions on instincts, not on facts and knowledge, that might explain why his staff is constantly churned.

    Is Trump some intellectually lazy playboy who has relied on others to get by? Is Trump infatuated with powerful men, so he appoints powerful men to look powerful? Does Trump read anything? Did Trump really author any book, or did he have ghost writers?

    Like I keep saying, is Trump qualified to run a fast food joint? Trump is good at politics and firing Bolton is surely a winning play come election time. Trump is learning how to play politics and making himself look like a great savior. He might be playing everyone, including Israel. Certainly giving Bolton the boot is a great move.

    What is Trump but a man who has projected an image of himself into the public’s mind, and this con man managed to get elected as POTUS. Trump is a fraud and liar, a whore of Israel, a protege con man of Roy Cohn. Trump is also a sexual deviant, and way way worse than anyone who’s outed his insane sex behavior like with his daughter Ivanka.

    Here is a new meme about this Trump character, so if you vote for this sexual degenerate don’t say you weren’t warned. In this meme we see a young effeminate Donald Trump as the gay twinkie boy toy of Roy Cohn. All those Christians who voted for Trump were duped big time!

  2. How about Mr Bolton had just a normal contract for the duration of eighteen months and it is now the end of his contract.
    Tralala. Both knew this but the political circus has to go on. No big time.

  3. exit the warmongering walruss.. Trump, like all the other so-called “people of power”, decides nothing. He is a puppet, and does as he is told..

  4. What if Bolton wasn’t subservient enough and that his successor will be something far worse? I trust you all realize that it’s now far too late in the game to invoke optimism. Need I remind you of 9/11’s “smashing” success? Of course I don’t.

  5. John Boltons wigmaker has said for some time that John Bolton is in the grip of the jews for ” boy-nobbing” e g having sex with young boys got him blackmailed
    You will hear the cheers from the UK all the way to the white house.
    PS the pervert obama with his smal boys being smuggled into the white house sickened us all
    but is Trump any better ?

  6. Hired and fired by Israel. He failed to get the war with Iran started, so Tel Aviv informed Trumplestein to let him go, and a far more suitable replacement who WILL get this war started will be announced shortly.

  7. Playing the shell game as old as time itself . Bolton will be replaced by another Bolton just a different name . No one in D.C. drops the ball while playing for Israel ….

  8. The BLOTUS has determined that John Boltoff wasn’t a good enough warmongering liar to be part of the US Adsinistration. A new and more convincing psychopathic liar will be replacing Dolton soon enough. BLOTUS = BIGGEST LIAR OF THE US.

    The CIA has upgraded its training courses on lying, cheating and stealing and now offers aspiring psychopaths a new cutting-edge program for the Post Truth Era. It includes Post-Doctoral Studies in in High-Level Blackmail, Pedophile Ring Protection, Massive Crime Perpetration and Cover-Ups, Directed Energy Terrorism (DET): the California Terror Fires are to be used as a case example. And don’t worry, they will continue to teach Special Relativistic Holocaust Mathematics.
