Former National Security Advisor John Bolton took to Twitter today to claim that the White House had been denying him access to his social media account.

Bolton made the announcement on Friday morning that his Twitter account had finally been “liberated” after being “suppressed unfairly” by the White House.

The White House has reportedly denied Bolton’s accusation that they locked him out of his Twitter account.

Bolton resigned from the Trump administration after having serious foreign policy disagreements with President Donald Trump. Bolton kept pushing his pro-war beliefs while Trump wanted to enact a more non-interventionist agenda.

“So, John is somebody that I actually got along with very well. He made some very big mistakes,” Trump said after Bolton was ousted from the administration.

Trump was particularly dismayed by Bolton’s remarks that North Korea would be taken care of using the “Libyan model.” This was a huge set-back in the ongoing peace talks between Trump and his good friend North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

“And it set us back, and frankly he wanted to do things — not necessarily tougher than me — You know John’s known as a tough guy. He’s so tough he got us into Iraq … but he’s actually somebody I had a very good relationship with. But he wasn’t getting along with people in the administration that I consider very important,” Trump said.

“As soon as he mentioned that, the Libyan model, what a disaster. Take a look at what happened to Gadhafi,” he added. “I don’t blame Kim Jong Un for what he said after that. And he wanted nothing to do with John Bolton. And that’s not a question of being tough. That’s a question of being not smart to say something like that.”

Trump went on to mock Bolton for his history of supporting failed foreign policy.

“John wasn’t in line with what we were doing and actually in some cases he thought it was too tough what we were doing,” he said. “Mr. Tough Guy, you know, you had to go into Iraq. Going into Iraq was something he felt very strongly about.”

Bolton’s social media posts indicate that he may be getting ready to join the left-wing resistance. The mustachioed warmonger signed a book deal earlier this month worth $2 million, and the book is scheduled to be published before the 2020 presidential election.

President Trump trusted Bolton to serve in his administration despite their many differences, and that trust may be broken by a neoconservative scorned by Trump’s unwillingness to start illegal wars.
