One issue between the men was the Alien and Sedition Acts. Jefferson believed that the acts themselves leaned toward establishing a dictatorship, which was out of the question and against what they had fought for.

There was also Adam's last minute appointment of federal judges. This selection of "midnight judges" caused a huge rift between the two.

Thirdly, the Kentucky Resolution was supported by both Jefferson and Madison.
