Tom Bossert, President Trump’s top homeland security adviser and former official under the globalist Bush regime, is resigning, the White House announced Tuesday.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that the president thanked Mr. Bossert for his “patriotic service.”
“The president is grateful for Tom’s commitment to the safety and security of our great country,” she said in a statement. “Tom led the White House’s efforts to protect the homeland from terrorist threats, strengthen our cyber defenses and respond to an unprecedented series of natural disasters.”
She said the president thanked Mr. Bossert “for his patriotic service and wishes him well.”
Mr. Bossert’s resignation is the latest in a string of top-level officials exiting the administration.
White House national security spokesman Michael Anton stepped down Monday, the first day John Bolton took over as director of the National Security Council.
A White House official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told CNBC that the move “seems like a natural turnover with a new [National Security Council] director.” John Bolton, a foreign policy hard-liner, started as Trump’s national security advisor Monday, succeeding H.R. McMaster.
The official said that they were not aware of any points of difference between Bolton and Bossert.
The action indicates that John Bolton is putting his own stamp on the administration, beginning by purging officials with globalist histories.
Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders released a statement on Bossert’s resignation:
“The President is grateful for Tom’s commitment to the safety and security of our great country. Tom led the White House’s efforts to protect the homeland from terrorist threats, strengthen our cyber defenses, and respond to an unprecedented series of natural disasters. President Trump thanks him for his patriotic service and wishes him well.”
Bossert’s resignation came two days after he took to the television airwaves to defend Trump’s decision to send National Guard troops to the border with Mexico.
“We’ve got a leaking boat on our border. And we’re all quibbling with how much water’s in the boat and how fast we’re bailing it out,” Bossert told ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday. “I think at this point the president’s been pretty clear, enough is enough, fix the actual problem and stop that leak.”
Bossert also served in the administration of globalist RINO George W. Bush and worked as a homeland security advisor during Trump’s transition period before taking office.
