Trump fires Bolton, Pompeo says ouster won't change foreign policy

President Donald Trump’s firing of National Security Adviser John Bolton will not change Trump’s foreign policy, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said.

“I don’t think any leader around the world should make any assumption that because one of us departs that President Trump’s foreign policy will change in a material way,” Pompeo said less than two hours after Trump announced on Twitter that he had ousted Bolton.

Pompeo appeared on the White House podium along with US Treasury Steven Mnuchin to discuss an executive order strengthening sanctions to combat terrorism.

Bolton was supposed to join the briefing, announced only hours earlier, indicating the hasty nature of his departure.

“I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House,” Trump said at noon on Tuesday on Twitter. “I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions, as did others in the Administration, and therefore....I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning.”

The president thanked Bolton for his service and said he would be naming a replacement next week.
