Trump says he fired national security advisor John Bolton -- but Bolton says he 'offered to resign' [View all]

President Donald Trump said Tuesday he fired national security advisor John Bolton, saying on Twitter he had "disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions."

But minutes later, Bolton in his own tweet said that he "offered to resign" Monday night, and that Trump told him, "Let's talk about it tomorrow."

Either way, Bolton's departure shocked Washington, D.C.
