US President Donald Trump has fired his National Security Advisor John Bolton.

"I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House," he wrote.

"I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions," Mr Trump wrote, adding that a new national security adviser would be appointed next week.

The firing comes amid reports of divisions in the Trump cabinet over a cancelled peace plan to invite the Taliban to the US.
