WASHINGTON (KKTV) - President Donald Trump named his new national security adviser in a tweet Wednesday morning.

Robert O'Brien, currently Trump's hostage envoy, will be replacing John Bolton, who left the position last week. Trump also announced Bolton's departure via Twitter, citing policy disagreements and stating he had asked for Bolton's resignation. Bolton rebutted in a tweet of his own that the resignation was his idea.

O'Brien will be the president's fourth national security adviser.
