President Trump has announced Tuesday that he’s asked for John Bolton to resign as National Security Advisor.

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

“I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week.”

Trump’s relationship with Bolton has reportedly soured over the last several months over Trump’s diplomatic approach to North Korea, Iran, and Afghanistan.

The president criticized Bolton over his neocon war hawk stances, citing his support of the unnecessary Iraq war.

“I have two groups of people. I have doves and I have hawks. John Bolton is absolutely a hawk. If it was up to him he’d take on the whole world at one time, okay?” Trump told reporters in June.

Around that same time, Trump introduced dovish Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) as a de facto advisor on Middle East policy matters, while relegating Bolton to the less important matters like consulting Mongolia on “security issues” while Trump made history crossing into North Korea.
