President Donald Trump asked for John Bolton’s resignation as national security adviser. According to US news reports, Bolton was at odds with the president on the peace talks with the Taliban for ending the war with Afghanistan and achieving a troop withdrawal. The hawkish Bolton was also said to have disagreed with the Trump administration on a nuclear deal with North Korea and French President Emmanuel Macron’s mediation for possible Trump talks with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. Bolton said in a Tweet: I offered to resign last night but the president said let’s talk about it tomorrow. Trump said he had requested Bolton’s resignation “last night” and it was offered in the morning.
