Trump ousts national security adviser Bolton

Posted online

President Donald Trump on Tuesday ousted national security adviser John Bolton.

"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.
