The AP's Vivian Salama and Jill Colvin report on a standoff between new Chief of Staff John Kelly and President Trump when Kelly was running the Department of Homeland Security.

Kelly reportedly demanded to speak with the president in private after Trump complained about how the U.S. was letting in travelers from foreign countries that he sees as high-risk. Kelly first tried to reason with Trump in the open setting, the report claims. When Trump refused to listen, Kelly demanded that the other advisors leave the room so he could "speak with the president frankly." Loud voices were then reportedly heard emanating from the Oval Office as Kelly made his point clear.

Editor's Note: This story originally said the meeting took place on Kelly's first day as Chief of Staff. It happened when he was still at DHS.

Ex-FDA chief: Pence campaigning after COVID exposure puts others at risk

Former FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb said "the short answer is yes" when asked whether Vice President Mike Pence is putting others at risk by continuing to campaign after several aides tested positive for COVID-19, stressing that the White House needs to be "very explicit about the risks that they're taking."

Why it matters: The New York Times reports that at least five members of Pence's inner circle, including his chief of staff Marc Short and outside adviser Marty Obst, have tested positive for the virus. Pence tested negative on Sunday morning, according to the VP's office, and he'll continue to travel for the final stretch of the 2020 campaign.
