Former Trump National Security Advisor John Bolton, who President Trump said minutes ago he fired, says he was not fired – he quit, or, at least, offered to resign.


“I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House,” President Trump tweeted at 11:58 AM. “I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning,” the president added minutes later.
