Within minutes after President Trump announced on Twitter that he has fired National Security Advisor John Bolton, another tweet was posted by Bolton himself.

“I offered to resign last night and President Trump said, “Let’s talk about it tomorrow,”‘ Bolton said in a tweet.

Brian Kilmeade of Fox News  announced on a news broadcast just after Bolton’s tweet that he had just received a text from Bolton, which stated, “Let’s be clear, I resigned.”

Trump had announced on Twitter, “I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House. I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions, as did others in the Administration, and therefore I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning. I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week.”

Just one hour prior to the announcement of his ouster, Bolton had tweeted the following statement about the 9/11 anniversary: “As we reflect this week on the horrific 9/11 attack, it’s important to remember how far we’ve come in combatting radical Islamist terrorist groups but also how much work is left. We stand strong against regimes that sponsor terror & encourage violence against the US & our allies.”

Earlier Tuesday morning, Bolton had warned that Iran is “working overtime on deception.”  He tweeted:

Now that we’re two weeks from #UNGA, you can be sure #Iran is working overtime on deception. Let’s review the greatest hits, starting with the most recent. #Iran denied the Adrian Darya-1 was headed to #Syria, then confirmed today its oil was offloaded there. #IranWebOfLies
