White House Spokesman: 'Very Clear' Bolton, Trump Did Not Align

By    |   Tuesday, 10 September 2019 01:44 PM

It was "very clear" that now-ex National Security Adviser John Bolton's policies and priorities didn't align with those of President Donald Trump's and the president has "the right" to have people around him who agree with executing his policies, White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said Tuesday.

He also denied to Fox News' "Outnumbered Overtime" Bolton's version of how he is out of a job in the White House. 

"Last night, the president of the United States asked John Bolton to tender his resignation," said Gidley. "It was delivered to the president today."

Bolton, however, tweeted that he and Trump had talked and had agreed to talk again on Tuesday.

"I won't get into the back and forth here, but the fact remains that the resignation was delivered today and we are in the process of looking for a new director," said Gidley.

Show host Harris Faulkner noted that there were many Republicans, Bolton included, who disagreed with Trump's now-canceled plans to meet with Taliban leaders about withdrawing troops from Afghanistan, but Bolton said that Trump is "moving fast and furious" around the world to protect Americans and to create trade deals.

Gidley also insisted that Trump wants people to disagree with him at times and argue their points, but at the end of the day, he's the one who sets policies.

"Once he makes the decisions, we come out and tell the American people what that decision is," said Gidley. "I can guarantee you this — whatever Donald Trump does, it's in the best interest of the American people."

Bolton's replacement will mark Trump's fourth national security adviser since he took office in January 2017. Gidley said the president wants in that office "someone who can carry out his agenda."
