LOL: Nobody Shows Up For ‘Impeach Trump’ Rally

Trump took to Twitter, where he announced Bolton’s firing in a series of tweets.

Now, John Bolton has also taken to Twitter, in order to dispute the President’s claims.

President Donald Trump said on Twitter that he had fired John Bolton, his national security advisor, in a stunning announcement on Tuesday that apparently took Bolton himself by surprise.

“I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House,” Trump wrote on in a harsh tweet, citing disagreements over policy.

Bolton offered a different story in his own tweet, claiming that he had offered on Monday night to resign but Trump brushed him off.

“I offered to resign last night and President Trump said, ‘Let’s talk about it tomorrow,’” Bolton wrote. [Mediaite]

Update: A source texted Fox News White House reporter John Roberts while he was on air to state that Bolton tendered his resignation less than 30 minutes before Trump took to Twitter to claim he had fired him the night before.
