President Trump has fired National Security Adviser John Bolton. In a series of tweets, the president said he informed Bolton Monday night that “his services are no longer needed” at the White House. He also said he disagreed strongly with many of Bolton’s suggestions as did others in the administration.

President also thanked Bolton  for his service, and said he will be naming a new national security adviser sometime next week. The White House said Deputy National Security Adviser Charlie Kupperman will take on the role in an acting capacity.

Bolton responded in a tweet, saying:

Meanwhile, the president’s decision to fire John Bolton is garnering support from lawmakers on both sides of the isle. In a tweet Tuesday, Senator Rand Paul commended the president for his decision.

In another message to Twitter, Democrat congressman Gerry Connolly said Bolton was the wrong choice from the beginning.
