in the vicinity ofthe video, attention turns to replace John Bolton as national security Advisor

At least seven people are on the list to replace John Bolton; chief White House correspondent John Roberts reports.

President Trump blasted John Bolton on Wednesday that “some big mistakes” during his tenure as national security adviser, the extension of the veteran Republican ugly parting in a second day.

To the press in the Oval Office, the President explained the reasons why Bolton left his high-profile post, and said that he asked the foreign policy hawk, to step down, amid complaints that Bolton was not well with others in the White house.

“He made some big mistake,” Trump said. “John was not in accordance with what we were doing.”

Trump added: “John came to see me the night before, and I said to him,” you don’t get along with a lot of people and a lot of people know how you would like your tactics and your ideas and I you to resign.'”


Trump’s comments reflected Bolton’s talk’s tweeted version of events, in which the former US Ambassador to the United Nations, he said, and offered his resignation, but the President would not accept immediately.

“I offered his resignation last night, and President, Trump said, ‘Let’s talk about it tomorrow,” tweeted Bolton.

Bolton told Fox News on Tuesday that he and the President discuss Afghanistan on Monday evening, when he offered his resignation.

“I offered his resignation last night,” he told Fox News in a text message. “There was no request for a withdrawal.”

A source told Fox News that Bolton in his resignation letter late Tuesday morning, according to the Trump’s tweeted on the Bolton ‘ remove sent.


The letter was by Fox News, from Sept. 10, 2019, and said: “Dear Mr. President: I hereby resign, effective immediately, as assistant to the President for National security Affairs. Thank you, that you serve me this opportunity, to our country.”

Bolton, who served previously as a Fox News contributor who worked in the administrations of former presidents Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush and served as Bush’s lawyer during the 2000 Florida recount. Bolton also served as the U.S. permanent representative to the United Nations from 2005 to 2006 as Secretary of state for arms control and international security, from 2001 to 2005.

Bolton, Trump was the third national security Advisor in April 2018, replaced H. R. McMaster, who had been appointed to replace earlier in the administration, Michael Flynn. He is known for his hawkish stance on foreign policy and as an advocate for U.S. intervention abroad, and regime change in States of the line of Washington’s opponents.


To negotiate tensions between Bolton and the White house staff flared up in the last few months, more influence in the President’s train, and manage his desire, with some of the world’s most unsavory actors. Since joining the administration in the spring of last year, Bolton expressed skepticism about the President’s whirlwind rapprochement with North Korea, and recently has become a vocal internal critic of possible talks between Trump and the leader of Iran and Afghanistan, the Taliban.


“We were very poor, when John Bolton, spoke about the “Libyan model” Trump of Bolton’s push to deal with North Korea in the same way, the US said dealt with Libya under the former strongman Muammar Al-Gaddafi.

The Libyan leader lost great weapons, and the inspectors in his country are not allowed to complain, just to the West give him much for it. He was eventually ostracized and killed during the Arab spring were supported by Europe and the United States


“I don’t think it’s a question of hard,” Trump added of Bolton’s proposed approach. “This is a matter of being not smart.


Bolton also broke with Trump and his vocal condemnation of the Russian global aggression, and he will have to convince in the past year, leading a quiet campaign, within the administration and with allies abroad to keep the trump card of the U.S. armed forces in Syria against the remnants of the Islamic state and the Iranian influence in the region. Bolton’s rank at the time contrasts with the former Minister of defense of Jim Mattis’ decision, rather than to withdraw about Trump December, cancellation announcement, which effectively reversed.

Trump said that he is considering to take on five candidates, as the national security adviser, and that an announcement should be made in the next week. Charles Kupperman, a member of the trump administration as a Deputy national security adviser under Bolton in January, is currently the acting national security Advisor.
