Two more advisors on Trump's national security team have resigned in the past 24 hours. The common denominator, as noted by many media outlets, is newly appointed national security advisor John Bolton. Bolton is replacing Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, who reportedly clashed with President Trump on foreign policy.
NSC spokesman Michael Anton announced his plans to leave a day before Bolton assumed his post. Earlier this week, a day after Bolton took over, homeland security adviser Tom Bossert resigned. On Wednesday, National Security Council deputy Nadia Schadlow said goodbye. Today, Deputy National Security Adviser Rick Waddell has handed in his own notice.

Waddell played an "integral role" in the White House, The Washington Post reports.
Reports suggest these resignations were Bolton's own doing, wanting to form his own team.
