Three Bolton aides resign after his departure
Three aides of the former National Security Adviser, John Bolton, have resigned after US President Donald Trump dismissed his cabinet appointee earlier this week.
The Hill reported that the departing aides are Bolton’s former spokesman, Garrett Marquis; his former communications director, Sarah Tinsley, and Christine Samuelian, who served as Bolton’s scheduler. The aides have reportedly worked with Bolton for years.
In a statement obtained by Reuters, Marquis said that it was “an honor to serve” the country and that he “wishes the president and the administration success moving forward.”
The resignations come just one day after Trump announced that he had fired Bolton over policy disagreements.
