National Security Adviser John Bolton claps back after Donald Trump said he fired him: “I offered my resignation last night.” So Trump lied? What a shocker!

Trump tweeted: “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.”

“I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week,” Trump said in a second tweet.

Bolton tweeted: “I offered to resign last night and President Trump said, “Let’s talk about it tomorrow.”

Bolton’s resignation letter was also a slap in Trump’s face: “I hereby resign, effective immediately, as Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs.” “Thank you for having afforded me this opportunity to serve our country.”
