White House Homeland Security Advisor Tom Bossert resigned on Tuesday, marking another in a series of recent departures from the Trump administration.

Bossert has been involved in many of President Donald Trump's most important initiatives, including the construction of the southern border wall, CNBC reports, as well as leading the administration's response to the devastating hurricanes last year that affected Puerto Rico, Florida and Texas.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders released a statement regarding Bossert's resignation.

"The President is grateful for Tom’s commitment to the safety and security of our great country," Sanders' statement said. "Tom led the White House’s efforts to protect the homeland from terrorist threats, strengthen our cyber defenses, and respond to an unprecedented series of natural disasters. President Trump thanks him for his patriotic service and wishes him well."

Bloomberg reporter Jennifer Jacobs says that Bossert's resignation was the result of him being pushed out by Trump's new National Security Advisor, John Bolton.

Bossert appeared on ABC's "This Week" as recently as Sunday to discuss Trump's sending of National Guard members to the southern border to assist the Border Patrol. He also said all options remained on the table with regard to a military response to Syria's recent chemical weapons attack.
