Trump reportedly looking to oust Bannon and Priebus amid feud with Kushner

Trump reportedly looking to oust Bannon and Priebus amid feud with Kushner

President Trump is said to be stoking the conflict between aides to have his underlings fight among themselves for his favor, which sounds like a great tactic for producing a reality show, but not for running a White House.

He actually said 'cuck, ' as in "cuckservative, '" the administration official told The Daily Beast.

Senior adviser Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law, and senior adviser Steve Bannon met at the behest of Trump, who has expressed irritation about anonymous sniping in the media between the two camps, the officials said.

But Bannon's potential departure is the far juicier story here, as he and Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, tussle for control of the president's agenda.

Numerous reports this week have signaled that the populist provocateur considered leaving the White House following his removal from the National Security Council's principals committee, although Bannon has denied those.

The 49ers could certainly use more choices; there's not one area on the team that is considered particularly deep or talented. If the Bears believe that Trubisky can be their franchise quarterback, I do not have a major problem with the selection.

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen said in a local radio interview that it would be "welcome news for the nation" if Bannon left the Trump administration.

Despite Trump's big news week, the White House is anxious that the stories of infighting and "palace intrigue" are supplanting stories about the president's successes.

Also on Wednesday, Trump removed Bannon from the council, because of concerns about his political influence.

The future of top White House staffers, Steve Bannon and Reince Priebus, is uncertain.

As evidence of that success, Walters noted the Senate's confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, Trump's recent meetings with foreign leaders and the USA missile strikes in Syria. "Whether the meeting was successful in creating a détente - and how long it lasts - is an open question, especially in a White House that has been dominated by infighting".

Bannon is arguably one of the most unpopular members of the Trump administration in large part for his role in founding Breitbart News, the ultra conservative and controversial news platform.

Meanwhile, Mr Kushner's star has been on the rise. Before the election, Kushner was also known to have had a longstanding relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, which would also have been subject to reporting.

On Thursday night, as Trump was weighing the most consequential national security decision of his presidency, it was the Kushner wing of Trump's staff who appeared to win over their boss. The hard-charging Bannon, a self-described "economic nationalist", has clashed with Kushner, a longtime Democrat, on issues ranging from social policy to intervention in Syria.

And when the White House released a photo of Trump being briefed after the strikes, Twitter was quick to notice that Bannon didn't have a seat at the table.
