Trump Sacks Bolton On A Tweet




The National Security advisor had been given the pink slip. John Bolton was asked to leave as his bold and hard-hitting advice to Trump did not go very well with the American President.

It has been seen that Bolton has shown disagreement with Trump’s move whether it has been Afghanistan or Iran. Strangely, this is the third time since Trump’s took charge of the office that the position is going to see a new face. Bolton took charge on April 2018, after Michael Flynn and HR McMaster quit.

Trump has known to have rallied his own well-wishes who speak for his thoughts. He has been seen to get rid of all those who have tried to show him reason into his ‘childish skirmishes’ he has been picking with Iran, China and the likes. Even for a celebrated and seasoned army officer, who was scheduled to receive his fourth-star decoration. But instead, he chose to retire from active duty as he then held the position of a Lieutenant General in the US Army.

Trump got rid of him due to his firm stands and had brought in John Bolton to take advantage of what the media termed as “ one of Washington’s most vocal war hawks” to work beside him in the West Wing. But Bolton’s own sense of reasoning has not gone well with Trump once again.

His termination was done rather rudely over a tweet in which Trump said that Bolton’s services were of no longer needed at the Oval office. Ironically, an hour before that the Press Office had already announced that Bolton was to join Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in a briefing.

Trump has been known for his isolationist strategy where in his mind, there is nothing more than ‘America first’ emotion to work on. Bolton has always been considered a bad-partnership by political analysts. Inside the administration, he advocated caution on the president’s whirlwind rapprochement with North Korea and against Trump’s decision last year to pull US troops out of Syria. He masterminded a quiet campaign inside the administration and with allies abroad to convince Trump to keep US forces in Syria to counter the remnants of the Islamic State and Iranian influence in the region.
