John Bolton is out. It’s no secret the hawkish national security adviser often butted heads with President Trump, and the result was his sudden departure from the White House last night.

In a text message to the Washington Post’s Robert Costa, Bolton said, “Let’s be clear, I resigned, having offered to do so last night.”
