And Bolton is in. Oh shit!
President Trump tweeted, “I am pleased to announce that, effective 4/9/18, @AmbJohnBolton will be my new National Security Advisor. I am very thankful for the service of General H.R. McMaster who has done an outstanding job & will always remain my friend. There will be an official contact handover on 4/9.”
Did Trump just fire another by tweet?
Not by tweet. That’s was just him telling everyone else because there is no other way a President of the United States can disseminate information.
Trump called McMaster around 5:15 and told him he was being replaced, per person with knowledge. It was a foregone conclusion. But it was pleasant and not fired by tweet.
