Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert resigns, White Residence says

"President Trump thanks him for his patriotic service and wishes him well", Sanders said.

Bossert had previously resisted a reorganization of the National Security Council a year ago that made him subordinate to the national security adviser, then H.R. McMaster, the insider said.

The position of White House national security adviser does not require Senate confirmation.

John Bolton, a former U.S. diplomat, took over the role of National Security Advisor, yesterday.

Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed Tom Bossert's resignation in a statement.

This year, the President has changed his secretary of state, national security adviser, and Central Intelligence Agency director, among others.

NBC's Peter Alexander also said Bossert had no plans on resigning any time soon.

That evening, Bossert was the keynote speaker at a conference of national security experts in Sea Island, Ga.

Jamil Jaffer, a former chief counsel to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and associate counsel to Bush, said it was a "huge mistake" to force Bossert out. Bossert insisted that he reported directly to the president and not to the national security adviser, which became a major source of frustration for McMaster.

Mr Bossert is one of more than a dozen high-profile officials who have left Mr Trump's administration less than 15 months into the president's first term.

Equating the border to a leaking boat, Bossert said, "We're all quibbling with how much water is in the boat and how fast we're bailing it out".
