U.S. President Donald Trump has fired John Bolton as his national security advisor.

My take:
Bolton's positions on various issues were in high contrast with others in the Trump admin, including the President.
#Iran apologists/lobbyists will be celebrating.
Yet I believe it will be short lived. Never forget that Trump is in charge & Trump is not Obama, no matter who his advisors are.
It is true that U.S. President Donald Trump may be thinking of November 2020 in this decision.
However, if he softens up on #Iran, he can easily be labelled as another Obama. Thus, whoever is appointed as the next White House NSA, Trump's #MaximumPressure policy will continue.

#Update & thread: Jeffrey wrote back while I was on live TV & told me to dress like a "normal woman". Gross. It was riddled with more misspellings, which I'm only slightly ashamed to say I reveled in 🙌 He's now reported to my managers & banned from my page.
People have said to out him. I get the sentiment, but for me, that's not what this is about. Public female figures face this garbage from entitled, unhinged strangers a lot. My wonderfully supportive male coworkers are routinely baffled by it, as it's almost never a 2-way street.
The best method, in my experience, is to drown out their antiquated, misogynistic poison with overwhelming support... which so many here have. Well done y'all, and keep it up for others.

For me, this moron has sparked a new motto: the louder the Jeffreys, the higher the pants 👖
