Trump boots Bolton

https://www.npr.org/2019/09/10/724363700/trump-fires-john-bolton-in-final-break-after-months-of-policy-divisions

Bolton's aggressive positions on Venezuela, North Korea and Afghanistan clashed with the comparative reluctance of his boss to entertain new confrontations and wind down some old ones.

Trump wanted to cut bait on the long-running war in Afghanistan, faulted the U.S. invasion of Iraq and rattled the foundations of America's security posture around the world, including its forward deployment of forces and system of alliances in Europe and Asia.

Bolton, meanwhile, communicated in old-school terms to leaders in Caracas, Pyongyang and Tehran, with threats about direct action by the U.S. military.

1. I've always thought it was a bad idea to hire Bolton

He's a ultrahawk.

2. Yeah, surprised me that Trump would hire a hawk like Bolton

Maybe he just did it to troll the left.
