Bolton Returns to Twitter after White House Freezes His Account
According To Iran News, Former US national security adviser John Bolton said in a series of cryptic tweets that he’s regained control of his personal Twitter account, asserting the White House refused to provide access to it after he resigned in September.
Bolton issued a series of tweets Friday that began with him saying he was glad to be back on Twitter and to “stay tuned”, AP reported.
A third tweet accused the White House of refusing to return access to the account, asking, “Out of fear of what I may say? To those who speculated I went into hiding, I’m sorry to disappoint!”
Finally, Bolton thanked Twitter for “standing by their community standards” and “rightfully returning control” of his account.
Twitter declined to comment. Trump was asked on Fox News whether the White House froze Bolton’s Twitter account.
“Of course not. No, I actually had a good relationship with John,” Trump said. “We disagreed on some things and some methods, but I actually had a good relationship. No, I didn’t do that.”
Bolton and Trump clashed frequently on foreign policy and the US president said the hawkish Bolton did not get along with others in the administration and was out of step with him on policy.
