President Trump’s brand new national security advisor John Bolton is already making waves. He’s been on the job for exactly two days and he’s already forced a top aide out of a job. Prominent adviser Tom Bossert announced that he would be leaving the White House.
Bolton clearly wants to have his own team around him. H.R. McMaster was fired for a reason. Clearly, some of the staff members that McMaster hired won’t be fit for Bolton. He only wants people who are loyal to Trump around him.
“The President is grateful for Tom’s commitment to the safety and security of our great country,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.
“Tom led the White House’s efforts to protect the homeland from terrorist threats, strengthen our cyber defenses, and respond to an unprecedented series of natural disasters. President Trump thanks him for his patriotic service and wishes him well.”
Bossert has been around since Trump took office. Less than two months ago he penned an angry op-ed about North Korea for the Wall Street Journal.
The ousted White House repeatedly spoke to the press about Trump’s idea over the past year. He supported the president’s aggressive military approach in the Middle East and North Korea, and recently he raved about the plan to militarize the southern border.
“We’ve got a leaking boat on our border, and we’re all quibbling with how much water’s in the boat. … What we’re doing is taking action now at the appropriate time instead of waiting as others have in the past,” Bossert said.
The Trump White House has experienced a lot of turmoil. McMaster was just the latest in a string of high-profile firings and resignations. McMaster’s dismissal was paired with Hope Hicks’ decision to leave her high-powered post.
Stability is coming, however. Trump is finally crafting a strong team.
