Report: Kelly, Bolton engaged in profanity-laced shouting match 

White House chief of staff John Kelly and national security adviser John Bolton reportedly engaged in a profanity-laden shouting match outside of the Oval Office on Thursday. 

Two sources who spoke with CNN said the incredibly heated argument was about increased border crossings and that President Trump took Bolton’s side. 

While some aides were reportedly concerned that resignations would follow, CNN reports that an official “said later that tempers had cooled and Kelly was not going to leave.”

Earlier that day, Trump had an eruption of his own in regard to immigration. 

He tweeted: “I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S.” 

In another tweet, he wrote: “In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!”
