President Trump unexpectedly announced Thursday night that former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton will replace General H.R. McMaster as his National Security Advisor; with the west wing shakeup taking place in early April.

“I am pleased to announce that, effective 4/9/18, @AmbJohnBolton will be my new National Security Advisor. I am very thankful for the service of General H.R. McMaster who has done an outstanding job & will always remain my friend. There will be an official contact handover on 4/9,” tweeted the President.

The President’s decision ends weeks of speculation over the fate of McMaster, following Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s departure earlier this month.

“I am thankful to President Donald J. Trump for the opportunity to serve him and our nation as national security adviser. I am grateful for the friendship and support of the members of the National Security Council who worked together to provide the President with the best options to protect and advance our national interests,” said a statement from McMaster.
