resignation which was given to me this morning bolton tweeted not the usual thanks for being able to set but an insistence he quit rather than being fired at a news briefing at the white house which bolton was initially listed to attend stephen secretary of state mike pompey defended the president's decision the president's entitle to the staff that he wants at any moment a staff person who works directly for the president of states and he should have people they trust and values if there were many times in basketball that i disagree that's to be sure but that's true for lots of lots of people who with whom i interact john bolton was donald trump started national security advisor the longest serving so far but with his stated positions of using military force in iran and north korea he was annoyed fit for a president whose isolationist america 1st policy wanted to reduce the u.s. military footprint reason only told him was against talking to north korea against pulling u.s. troops out of syria and against the president's latest idea of inviting afghanistan's
6:03 am
taliban to peace talks at camp david that seems to have been the breaking point we have seen from this and from every other firing that what he really wants are people that echo what he already wants to do and with bolton's opposition gone there could be obvious changes for example that there's a better chance the president will meet with his a really encounter part president made very clear is prepared to meet with no preconditions before he became president donald trump considered john bolton for the role of secretary of state but ultimately decided against it because he felt he didn't look the part mainly because of his mr bush now after 18 months as the national security advisor john bolton once again finds that his face doesn't fit alan fischer al-jazeera at the white house. arab countries have condemned a campaign pledge by israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu to the occupied west bank they say his plan would violate international law that's now said the trump
