Well, John Bolton was asked to resign last night and did so this morning. At 10:55am the WH issued a press release stating Bolton would be in the WH presser at 1:30pm. Bolton insists he offered to resign last night after a heated discussion on Afghanistan. Bolton claim the President said, “Let’s talk about it tomorrow.” Yet, at about 11:28am, the President issued this tweet.
Bolton is gone and a new National Security Advisor will take his place.
And then, about 2 hours later, Secs Mnuchin and Pompeo took to the podium to explain details about the new EO the President signed targeting terrorists all over the globe (and wow, are they ever targeting terrorists, “most significant action since we went to war after 9/11”). Wolfie, I’m having a hard time getting the C-Span link to show up properly, can you help, please?
Here is the presser for the ages. Starts at 31 minutes and it is HOT!
We all know the media will spin this story into a 4 day story. The people in this forum are equally if not more qualified to respond and speculate.
What do you guys think?
