Bloomberg News reported that adviser John Bolton and chief of staff John Kelly got into the fight corroborated by three White House sources. A White House source confirmed to Breitbart News that the argument occurred, noting that Kelly, Trump's former DHS Secretary, and Bolton do not agree on the best way to solve the border issue.

She then slammed Democrats, accusing them of failing to address the issue and pushing an open borders agenda.

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

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.

It was Woods performance in the Players Championship that really caught the eye, with rounds of 65 and 69 during the weekend. With the leaders in the US Open normally hovering around par, this produces a great opportunity for Woods to capitalize.

Trump on Thursday tweeted that he was prepared to call out the military and even close the border if the "onslaught" is not stopped. CNN reports neither man is likely to resign. The argument was over immigration policy, with Bolton wanting a more hard-line approach on illegal border crossings. 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, when asked about the incident, said, "That I have not heard about".

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