Day after Bolton takes over, homeland security aide is out

Tom Bossert, homeland security adviser to President Donald Trump, has resigned from his post, Reuters reported Tuesday.

But Bolton, also considered a conservative icon, reportedly wants his own team.

"I don't have any other personnel announcements to make at this time", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told Newsmax after we asked if there were any other changes coming in Bolton's official family.


Bossert joins a long list of senior officials who have resigned or been fired since Trump took office in January 2017, including previous national security advisers Michael Flynn and H.R. McMaster, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, communications directors Hope Hicks and Anthony Scaramucci, economic adviser Gary Cohn and chief strategist Steve Bannon. Bossert also suffered from a confusing chain of command inside the White House. His sudden forced resignation suggests Bolton may be intent on ensuring that Bossert's replacement on cyber and counterterrorism strategy reports directly to him. Recently, Trump's national security spokesperson Michael Anton quit the White House to return to writing and academics. Though they now share staff, the NSC and HSC conduct their own meetings and handle their own policy issues.

Forty-three-year-old Bossert is a former deputy national security adviser to President George W Bush who monitored the official response to the mayhem that Hurricane Maria caused in Puerto Rico last year and also the cybersecurity policy. She said Trump was "grateful for Tom's commitment to the safety and security of our great country". "President Trump thanks him for his patriotic service and wishes him well".
