President Trump on Tuesday announced that he had fired embattled National Security Advisor John Bolton.
"I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House", the president wrote.
Trump thanked Bolton for his service and said he would name a new National Security Advisor next week.
Bolton and his National Security Council staff were also viewed warily by some in the White House who viewed them as more attuned to their own agendas than the president's - and some administration aides have accused Bolton's staff of being behind leaks of information embarrassing to Trump.
Trump was irked by reports that he had faced internal pushback from Bolton over his decision to host leaders of the Taliban at Camp David, multiple people familiar with his frustration say.
Mr. Bolton opposed negotiating with the Taliban.
Bolton, who is known for decades of hawkish positions on USA foreign policy from North Korea to Iran, had been scheduled to take part in a press briefing Tuesday on terrorism.
Bolton had also served in the administration of George W. Bush as USA ambassador to the United Nations.
Mr Bolton, who took up the post in April 2018, replacing H.R. McMaster, had sometimes been at odds with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, one of Mr Trump's main loyalists.
Trump did not elaborate on what disagreements he had with Bolton.
Bolton, in response to Trump's tweet, said he offered his resignation Monday night.
Since joining Trump's White House, Bolton pursued an agenda that included trying to break Iran financially, shield Americans from the reach of the International Criminal Court and toughen the US posture toward Russian Federation.
