On Wednesday, National Security Council deputy Nadia Schadlow said goodbye. The strategy has set a strong foundation going forward for protecting the homeland, promoting American prosperity, preserving peace through strength and advancing American influence.
Nadia Schadlow was considered a trusted confidante of H.R. McMaster, who was the former National Security Adviser before Bolton, which might be one of the reasons for this resignation.
A senior White House official told CNN that, after speaking with Bolton on Tuesday, Schadlow chose to resign "to allow him to build his own NSC leadership team". "We wish Nadia and her family the best", he said in a statement sent to various news outlets.
Bolton who joined on Monday has already planned to start reshaping the National Security Council team.
Bolton reportedly asked for Bossert's resignation on Tuesday but White House press secretary Sarah Sanders did not elaborate on that detail.
NSC spokesman Michael Anton announced his plans to leave a day before Bolton assumed his post. Though they now share staff, the NSC and HSC conduct their own meetings and handle their own policy issues.
Under the George W. Bush administration, the HSC and NSC worked as separate staffs. Senior White House officials said other personnel changes could happen in the coming days on the National Security Council, which has been weakened under the Trump administration but is expected to gain power under Bolton.
Those moves follow Trump's appointment of John Bolton, a former United Nations ambassador and Fox News commentator, to succeed McMaster. He took over from K.T. McFarland, the deputy to Donald Trump's first national security adviser, Michael Flynn.
