outside the Oval Office, sources familiar with the incident told
CNN and
Bloomberg. 

The argument revolved around difference of opinion men over the
White House’s response to the drastic influx of migrants crossing
the Southern border–and Kelly got even angrier when Trump took

Over the past few days, Trump has fired off a series of angry
tweets against Central American governments, which he blames in
part for enabling a caravan of 4,000 Honduran migrants currently
traveling to the US border to seek asylum in the United
States. 

“In addition to stopping all payments to these countries,
which seem to have almost no control over their population, I
must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this

plans to resign.
