Bolton’s “Libyan model” comments on North Korea were a setback: Trump

President says he doesn't blame Kim for not wanting to deal with now-fired national security advisor

Former U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton's comments on using a "Libyan model" with North Korea were among the reasons for his dismissal this week, U.S. President Donald Trump said Wednesday.

Speaking to reporters in the Oval Office, Trump also said that Bolton wasn't getting along with others in the administration and wasn't "in line with what we were doing."
