Top Homeland Security aide quits on Bolton's second day

Top Homeland Security aide quits on Bolton's second day

Bloomberg News reporter Jennifer Jacobs tweeted that Bossert was pushed out by the new national security adviser John Bolton, whose first day on the job was Monday.

White House officials reportedly confirmed Wednesday that Nadia Schadlow will resign her position as deputy national security adviser for strategy at the end of April, marking the third high-ranking national security official to announce their departure this week. "We wish Nadia and her family the best", he said in a statement sent to various news outlets.

Mr. Bossert's resignation coincided with the arrival of John R. Bolton as the president's national security adviser, and was an unmistakable sign that Mr. Bolton is intent on naming his own people. Meanwhile, US Gov Eric Greitens is accused of forced sexual encounter. She rose to the position of deputy national security adviser for strategy in January following the departure of her predecessor, Dina Powell.

Schadlow was a principal author of the President's National Security Strategy document, which sought to outline the administration's foreign policy goals and view of the world. "And I am particularly proud that you were able to submit your NSS to Congress earlier than any previous administration ... on time and under budget!"

Bolton's strategy has proved markedly different than that of Larry Kudlow, the national economic adviser, who has offered to keep all of former economic adviser Gary Cohn's team and has made few waves at the national economic council.

Bolton has said he wants his own team in place ahead of a chaotic two-month stretch, in which the administration must decide whether to recertify the Iran nuclear deal, and Trump is expected to meet with North Korea President Kim Jong-Un.
