The president of the United States of America Donald Trump has sacked his national security advisor John Bolton.
In a number of tweets, the head of state revealed that Mr Bolton had to leave his administration because of differences on an array of issues.
Trump expressed his gratitude for his service to the country.
“I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House,” the president's tweet read. “ 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. I thank John very much for his service, " the tweet continued to state.
John Bolton, however, appeared to contradict President Trump about how he left his job, saying he had offered to resign and the president had promised to look into it the following day.
“I hereby resign, effective immediately, as Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs. Thank you for affording me this opportunity to serve our country,” John Bolton said in a terse resignation letter.
Top of the differences between the hawkish national security advisor and Donald Trump was the now-scrapped meeting at Camp David with the leadership of the Taliban.
