On Tuesday, Trump tweeted that he asked Bolton for his resignation on Monday night, and received the resignation on Tuesday morning.
 
However, Bolton disputed the tweets, saying he had offered his resignation on Monday night, but Trump told him quote, "let's talk about it tomorrow."
 
Trump also said on Twitter that he strongly disagreed with many of Bolton's suggestions, as did others in the administration, and therefore asked for his resignation.
 
White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said that Bolton's "priorities and policies just don't line up with the president."
 
Bolton, 70, came to the position in April 2018. He was known as a figure who advocated for tough foreign policies, especially in regard to Iran and Afghanistan. 
 
Trump said Bolton's successor will be named next week.
