An Ugly Fight Just Broke Out Between Bolton And Kelly, Shouting Profanity Outside The Oval Office
White House chief of staff John Kelly and National Security Adviser John Bolton got into a heated argument Thursday outside the Oval Office, where they yelled profanity each other, according to Bloomberg.
The news outlet reported that aides were worried one of the Johns would resign — but sources said they’re both staying put for now.
“The clash is an indication that tension is flaring in the White House 19 days before midterm elections in which Republican control of Congress is at stake. The shouting match was so intense that other White House aides worried one of the two men might immediately resign. Neither of the men is resigning, the people said.”
Trump is aware of the argument, the people said, even though the president told reporters he didn’t know about it before boarding Air Force One to travel to Montana for a campaign rally. He has recently sought to make immigration a more prominent political issue, blaming Democrats for increased numbers of migrants crossing the border.
