White House row: Top aids clash outside Oval Office

White House row: Top aids clash outside Oval Office”

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

In the extremely loud, profanity-laced verbal fight that unfolded in front of multiple witnesses, Bolton attacked the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for failing to implement Trump's immigration policy - according to reports by Bloomberg, CNN and Washington Examiner citing anonymous sources inside the White House.

Stephen Colbert can't get enough of the reports of a shouting match in the White House between two of President Donald Trump's top aides. Bolton was siding with the president, who has angrily blamed Nielsen for failing to staunch the flow of migrants across the border, while Kelly, who is protective of his protégé, defended her, the people said.

Bolton and Nielsen had a good conversation after Kelly and Bolton's argument, a White House official said.

The two men also differed over how aggressively to push Central American countries to do more to discourage their citizens from seeking refuge in the United States.

"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!' Trump said in a tweet".

After the confrontation was reported, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a statement indicating that there are no hard feelings among the president's senior advisers. Kelly eventually stormed out, leaving the White House for the day.
