JOHN BOLTON, the US national security adviser, has been fired by Donald Trump.
The adviser, who was known for his tough stance on relations with Iran, has been sacked by the US President.
Announcing the news on Twitter, Trump said: “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.”
Trump said that he would be naming a new national security adviser next week.
Soon after Trump announced the news, Bolton took to Twitter. “I offered to resign last night and President Trump said, ‘Let’s talk about it tomorrow’,” he said.
