Jesse Watters says John Bolton 'didn't have a lot of allies' in administration

Trump says he removed Bolton, Bolton claims he resigned

Feud over White House shake-up; reaction and analysis on ‘The Five.’

"The Five" weighed in Tuesday on National Security Adviser John Bolton leaving the Trump administration.

"I don't know what happened, but I mean the guy's had a very good career very well-respected professional guy but it just didn't work out. It had been simmering for a long time," co-host Jesse Watters said.

President Trump announced Tuesday that he'd fired Bolton, saying he “disagreed strongly” with his suggestions on a range of issues. Bolton swiftly challenged Trump's version of events, saying he offered to resign.

Watters believes there were personality and ideology clashes and insinuated that Bolton might not "play well" with others in the administration.

"He didn't have a lot of allies," Watters said, referencing clashes with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Vice President Pence, among others.

Co-host Juan Williams was concerned with the number of vacancies in the administration, worrying that they may put "American in danger."

Fox Business' Kennedy speculated that Bolton may consider running for president.

"I actually wouldn't be surprised to see John Bolton launch his candidacy for the presidency," Kennedy said.
