Tom Bossert, Interior Security Advisor to the US President, on August 31, 2017 at the White House in Washington
The White House on Tuesday announced a new resignation in the team of President Donald Trump, with the resignation of Interior Security Advisor Tom Bossert.
„The president appreciates Tom’s commitment to the security of our great country,“ said presidential spokeswoman Sarah Sanders.
Bossert was considered one of the president’s favorite advisers, particularly on issues such as planning against terrorism actions, responding to natural disasters and cyber attacks.
The measured rhetoric of Bossert, seen as perfectly adequate for television, had elevated him to the status of one of the president’s favorites.
Over the weekend, Bossert had offered numerous television interviews to discuss the possible response of the government to the apparent chemical attack in Syria.
Bossert’s departure comes just a day after the arrival of ultraconservative John Bolton as the fourth National Security Adviser in the White House since the election of Trump.
