Afghanistan policy and delivering Mr Trump’s demand for US troops to come home was not the only foreign policy issue on which Mr Bolton and the president had differences.
Mr Bolton, a renowned foreign policy hawk, has been sceptical of the chances of convincing Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader, to give up his nuclear arsenal.
That stance contrasts with Mr Trump’s repeated optimism of securing a deal and warm words for the dictator.
Mr Botlon’s enthusiasm for a tougher stance on Iran – he once advocated bombing the regime – and Venezuela, where the US is trying to force embattled president Nicolas Maduro from power, has also led to reports of tensions with the president.
Mr Trump addressed them in May, joking that he “tempers” Mr Bolton during their private foreign policy deliberations.
Mr Trump added then of his advisers: “I have different sides. I have John Bolton and other people that are a little more dovish than him.”
