John Kelly and John Bolton have shouting match over immigration

Outside the Oval Office, Bolton and Kelly clashed, with the chief of staff defending Nielsen.

According to reports, chief of staff John Kelly and national security advisor John Bolton got into it on Thursday.

A third person described the episode as little more than a typical airing of differences between Bolton and Kelly, who has a temper.

A senior White House official said later that Nielsen and Bolton had a nice conversation in Bolton's office after the exchange and agreed the goal was to protect borders. Trump, who was incensed about the rising levels of migrants and threatened to shut down the southern border on Twitter earlier that morning, took Bolton's side during the argument. CNN reported on fears in the White House that someone might resign over the argument. Bolton became Trump's national security adviser in March this year, having previously served as the hawkish ambassador to the United Nations under President George W. Bush.




Trump is aware of the argument, the sources 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.

White House chief of staff John Kelly, left, was reportedly so upset that he uttered some profanities.

In a statement Thursday, Sarah Sanders says while those in the administration are passionate about solving the issue of illegal immigration, nobody is angry at one another.
