WASHINGTON — The Trump administration introduced one other main departure from its senior ranks on Tuesday, with the resignation of Thomas P. Bossert as President Trump’s chief adviser on homeland safety.
Mr. Bossert’s resignation coincided with the arrival of John R. Bolton because the president’s nationwide safety adviser, and was an unmistakable signal that Mr. Bolton is intent on naming his personal individuals.
In a press release, the White Home press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, stated the president thanked Mr. Bossert, 43, for “for his patriotic service and needs him effectively.”
“The president is grateful for Tom’s dedication to the security and safety of our nice nation,” Ms. Sanders stated. “Tom led the White Home’s efforts to guard the homeland from terrorist threats, strengthen our cyber defenses, and reply to an unprecedented collection of pure disasters.”
Mr. Bossert, who served within the George W. Bush administration, made a reputation for himself within the present White Home as the general public face of the administration’s response to hurricanes that tore by way of Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.
However administration officers stated he chafed at that a part of his job, preferring to get entangled in coverage points on counterterrorism and cyberwarfare.
Mr. Bossert, former colleagues stated, aspired to a broader portfolio — even that of nationwide safety adviser — which was not within the playing cards. A White Home official stated Rob Joyce, a particular assistant to the president and cybersecurity coordinator on the Nationwide Safety Council, would take Mr. Bossert’s place on an performing foundation.
