Hoover Institution fellow Condoleezza Rice weighs in on the exit of National Security Adviser John Bolton from the Trump administration, saying that in the end, Bolton had to have known he would have to "go" if he and the president weren't on the same page. Rice says "I'm sure he did his best to give the president his unvarnished advice which is what you're supposed to do as national security adviser, but in the final analysis, if the national security adviser and the president are not on the same page, it's not the president who's going to go and I'm sure that John understands that as a long-serving diplomat, long-serving policy expert."
