Battle of the Thin Skins: Bolton - I Quit, Trumpie - I Fired Him

President Trump said he fired national security adviser John Bolton on Twitter Tuesday afternoon amid reported personality and policy clashes in the White House⁠—but Bolton claimed he had already offered his resignation.

- At 11:58 a.m. EST, Trump tweeted that he “informed” Bolton Monday evening that “his services are no longer needed.”
- Bolton fired back on Twitter 12 minutes later, writing, “I offered to resign last night and President Trump said, ‘Let’s talk about it tomorrow.’”
- Just six minutes after Bolton’s tweet, Washington Post reporter Robert Costa joined in. “Ambassador Bolton sends me a text message just now: ‘Let’s be clear, I resigned, having offered to do so last night,’” wrote Costa on Twitter.

Bosnians march in first Gay Pride under tight police protection

SARAJEVO, Sept 8 (Reuters) - Several thousand people marched in Bosnia's first Gay Pride on Sunday, protected by a major security operation including anti-sniper units after some conservative Muslim groups organised counter-rallies.

The parade in the capital Sarajevo ended peacefully despite fears of violence prompted by aggressive hate speech online in a country where anti-gay sentiment can often be heard in public.

"I have always thought that basic human rights should exist for all and when I saw all those hate comments against the Pride march, I felt it was my obligation to come and show support," said Sanja, 54, from Sarajevo, who joined the march with her husband.

More than 1,000 police officers secured the event, shielding the walking area with fences and concrete blocks. Anti-sniper units were placed on the roofs of buildings along the main route in the city centre.

The Best & Worst Places for Expats in 2019

In its sixth year, Expat Insider, one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive surveys on life abroad, has set yet another record: 20,259 participants from around the globe shared their experiences in 2019. Together, they represent 182 nationalities and are scattered across 187 countries or territories. Although a few destinations attract a majority of expats — three in ten live in Germany, the USA, Switzerland, the UK, or the UAE — the Expat Insider 2019 survey also includes responses from more unusual expat destinations such as Aruba, Turkmenistan, or Vanuatu.

While first-placed Taiwan is not new to the top 3 and ranked first in 2016 as well, Portugal (3rd) and especially Vietnam (2nd) have reached new heights in the global expat ranking.
- #1 Taiwan reclaims its 2016 top spot with great results across all topics.
- New in the top 3, #2 Vietnam even ranks first for finance and working abroad.
- Over half the expats in #3 Portugal plan to stay possibly forever.
- Few surprises at the bottom: Kuwait (64th), Italy (63rd), Nigeria (62nd) place last.
- Dropping out of the top 3, 2018’s winner Bahrain still places in the 2019 top 10.
