President Trump on Tuesday tweeted that he had fired National Security Adviser John Bolton amid conflict among his foreign policy team over Afghanistan and other matters.
….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.

I offered to resign last night and President Trump said, "Let's talk about it tomorrow."
