Trump says he fired U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton
The U.S. National Security Adviser, John Bolton, is out of a job. President Donald Trump says he fired him. But Bolton said he resigned.
CGTN's Nathan King has more on the drama unfolding at the White House.
Former White House national security adviser John Bolton says that President Donald Trump's denial on receiving a briefing about intelligence that Russians had tried to bribe Taliban fighters to kill US troops, shows that his "fundamental focus" is not on national security. ABC's chief global affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz discusses her interview with former national security adviser John Bolton and shares a new clip from the interview on "This Week."
#ABCNews #ThisWeek #JohnBolton #FormerNationalSecurityAdviser US President Donald Trump says he plans to ban the Chinese-owned video app TikTok. US officials are currently looking into the possibility that China can access user data collected by the app. An outright ban would come as a blow to TikTok's millions of fans, but its exploding popularity has also raised red flags. The plan comes on the heels of tit-for-tat consulate closures in Houston and Chengdu. Is TikTok a threat to US national security? President Donald Trump has been hit by new allegations from his own former National Security Adviser and longtime Republican John Bolton.
Trump revealed he didn't know the UK was a nuclear power during a meeting with former prime minister Theresa May, Mr Bolton claims in his new book 'The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir'.
The former adviser added that he could tell the question from the US president about the UK, which has long maintained a nuclear arsenal, 'was not intended as a joke.'
The US president responded by branding Mr Bolton a 'wacko', saying the book is 'made up of lies and fake stories'.
Another claim in Mr Bolton's book is that Mr Trump sought Chinese leader Xi Jinping's help to win the 2020 presidential election during a private meeting.
