Trump’s dynasty is falling apart more every day, and a perfect example was made by his Chief of Staff and his National Security Adviser Thursday afternoon. Bloomberg just reported that John Kelly and John Bolton have reportedly engaged in a profanity-laced tirade outside the Oval Office, according to at least three sources.

Bloomberg states that:
“President Donald Trump’s chief of staff and his national security adviser engaged in a profanity-laced argument outside the Oval Office on Thursday, according to three people familiar with the episode.”“It wasn’t immediately clear what the chief of staff, John Kelly, and the national security adviser, John Bolton, were arguing about. The clash is an indication that tension is resurfacing 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 is resigning, the people said.”“It’s not clear if Trump heard the argument. But the people said he is aware of it.”
“The exchange lay bare a bitter disagreement that has existed between two of President Donald Trump’s top aides for weeks now. 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.”
“After the blowup, aides whispered privately that one of the men might leave the White House given the deep disagreement over the border. The fact that the President sided with Bolton, which only added to Kelly’s fury.A White House official said later that tempers had cooled and Kelly was not going to leave. Another declined to comment.”
