NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- President Donald Trump has asked national security adviser John Bolton to resign.

Trump made the announcement in a tweet Tuesday afternoon.

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

Trump said he "disagree strongly" with many of Bolton's suggestions.

They have been known to clash on such issues as Iran and North Korea. Trump has sought diplomacy with the two American foes, while Bolton has suggested a more hard-line approach.

Bolton submitted his resignation Tuesday morning.

He was Trump's third national security adviser. Trump said he will appoint a new national security adviser next week.
