Since YOU understand this so well, can you please explain why we have MORE troops in Afghanistan today than Jan 2017?"vraiblonde, post: 6042939, member: 770"]
If I understand Trump wanting to decrease our foreign involvement and end these pointless global conflicts, surely John Bolton understood as well.
Trump doesn't have a clue from minute to minute what he is doing. He contradicts himself and his staff constantly. That is what happens when you are inept, incompetent and unfit for the job you hold.I think these people forget that they work for the President and are not autonomous. Trump is pretty clear and specific where he wants to go with these things, and if the advisor isn't on board with that agenda, they should obviously not be there.
Like Mike Pompeo said The President of the United States is entitled to have the staff he wants. It's TRUMP's policy. He is looking for advisors to facilitate his policies, not try to implement their own.And the revolving door continues.
I guess Trump is looking for advisers to tell him what he wants to hear, not what he needs to hear. If that's the case, why even bother having advisers?
Did you ever watch The Apprentice?I don't know if Trump is the problem or not but there does seem to be a continuing pattern here. Maybe he's not being upfront and clear with his appointees at the beginning as to what his expectations are and what the ground rules are.

Maybe Bolton is one of the best people. As Vrai stated earlier - he forgot he was the dog and not the master. What is so hard for you to understand about that? He serves (as do all of the Cabinet level positions) at the pleasure of the POTUS. John Bolton was publicly stating differences with his boss. A boss who doesn't suffer fools lightly.So why hire Bolton a known war hawk in the first place?
I thought Trump only hires the best people. Why has he gone through three Security advisors already.

I think if I publicly disagreed and voiced my differences with my bosses, and made them look bad to their customers, they'd be unhappy with me, and could fire me as well.
Yes but why don’t you find fault with the boss who keeps making the same bad hiring decisions? Why doesn’t he vet these people better to avoid the embarrassment, chaos and general feeling of ineptitude that leaks form the Whit house
We put dogs on leashes and teach them commands , bad behavior is usually the owners fault. You can’t blame the dog for being a dog.
This is the 455th departure in less than three years. That is mind boggling
I don’t like Trump’s personality so much, but he stopped the leap frogs in their swampy tracks. It is interesting to watch their reactions to him. They just got back from a long vacay, and the first thing they want to do is continue to try to impeach him. Talk about a tantrum. What happened to our elected officials doing something for the citizens that elected them? Instead of their agenda? I just hope that Trump was the US wake up call; so to speak. Referring to all the Trump resort crap. God bless the USA.
The one thing I never liked about Trump was/is this apparent attitude he has that if you, as an employee, disagree with him, that's grounds for firing. That may not be reality, but that's what it's always looked like to me; that if people who work for Trump aren't "yes men," he doesn't want them around.I wondered how long Bolton would last in that position. I like his hard-nosed views on world politics but it was pretty obvious that Trump did not share many of them. When it came out that Bolton had been strongly opposing the now-cancelled Camp David meeting with Taliban leaders, I figured Bolton's days were numbered.
