John Kelly, John Bolton get into heated argument outside Oval Office

Kelly, Bolton reportedly get into White House screaming match

The two Cabinet members got into it over the surge in border crossings and the procession of thousands of migrants from Central American countries edging closer to the United States, CNN reported.

Bolton criticized Nielsen, a former Kelly deputy whom he advocated to replace him at the department.

Trump on Thursday tweeted that he was prepared to call out the military and even close the border if the "onslaught" is not stopped.

It was unclear if President Trump heard the ruckus outside the Oval Office.


"The shouting match was so intense that other White House aides anxious one of the two men might immediately resign", the report noted, adding that neither are leaving the administration over the dispute. However, a White House official did say that tempers had since cooled and neither men are going to leave.

Trump, asked about the incident, told reporters: "That I have not heard about".

Trump has been angered recently by reports of a migrant caravan formed in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, on Saturday that is heading to the US carrying thousands of migrants, organizers say.
