A number of countries are breathing a sigh of relief today as US National Security Advisor and ardent war hawk, John Bolton, has apparently been fired by Donald Trump, although Bolton insists that he had handed in his resignation first. This afternoon, President Trump tweeted: “I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House… I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning,” Trump tweeted. However, Bolton is offering a different account of events. After tweeting out that he had offered his resignation to President Trump, Bolton then reached out to reporters to try to amplify the narrative that he had resigned rather than being sacked.
