Trump Attacks Bolton, Denies He Resigned [VIDEO]

Axios reports:

President Trump addressed the reasons behind John Bolton’s removal as national security adviser on Wednesday, telling reporters that Bolton “made some very big mistakes” and was “not getting along with people in the administration.”

The tumultuous working relationship between Trump and his ultra-hawkish adviser ended suddenly on Tuesday. Trump tweeted that he’d fired Bolton, who then claimed to have resigned. Trump insisted that it was his decision to terminate Bolton, but said his former top aide “can do whatever he can do to spin it his way.”

“He sat right in that chair and I told him, ‘John … you’re not getting along with people and a lot of us, including me, disagree with some of your tactics and some of your ideas and I wish you well but I want you to submit your resignation.’ And he did that.”
