John Bolton contradicted Donald Trump minutes after the president announced he fired Bolton as national security adviser.

“I offered to resign last night and President Trump said, 'Let's talk about it tomorrow,'” Bolton wrote in a tweet.

Less than 15 minutes before Bolton's tweet, Trump wrote in his own series of tweets that he had requested Bolton's resignation on Monday night.

Trump claimed that Bolton's resignation was given Tuesday morning.

“I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House," Trump wrote.

“I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions, as did others in the Administration.”

Bolton also texted several reporters that he did not been fired, as the president had said.

Brian Kilmeade, a host on Fox & Friends, said live on the program that he had just gotten a text message from the ousted national security adviser.

“John Bolton just texted me, just now, he's watching. He said, 'let's be clear, I resigned,'" Kilmeade said.

Bolton, in text to Fox hosts who were on air to dispute trump's account of his firing revealed to Kilmeade that: "John Bolton just texted me, just now, he's watching. He said, 'let's be clear, I resigned.'"

Lis Power (@LisPower1) September 10, 2019, Robert Costa, a national political reporter for the Washington Post, also wrote in a tweet that he had received a text from Bolton, saying “Let’s be clear, I resigned, having offered to do so last night.”

In another tweet, Costa said he also got this message from Bolton: “I will have my say in due course. But I have given you the facts on the resignation. My sole concern is US national security.”

Bolton's departure comes after disagreements at the White House over recent negotiations with the Taliban on ending the war in Afghanistan. Bolton made it clear that he opposed Trump's Camp David invitation to the Taliban. (USA Today)
