Both Bannon and Priebus Are Reportedly on Trump's Chopping Block

Politico said on Saturday that the sniping between the two men's respective factions in the White House has reached a breaking point, with the president attempting to impose some discipline on his two must trusted aides.

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

Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, also one of his chief advisers, has been working in global relations as well, drawing criticism because of his lack of government experience.

As Trump grew frustrated with the clear tensions between Bannon and Kushner, his ascendant senior adviser, he insisted they work out their differences.

Over at Axios, they're reporting that both Priebus and Bannon could be on the chopping block, including a list of possible candidates who could replace Reince.

The Trump White House has pushed back against any stories regarding the unrest between the two top aides, calling them distractions.

White House senior advisers Jared Kushner, right, and Stephen K. Bannon walk on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington on March 15 after traveling to Detroit and Nashville with President Trump.

In what was viewed as a sign of Mr Bannon's declining influence, he was removed from his seat on the National Security Council this week.


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.

White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus ordered the meeting at the request of the president, according to reports.

Bannon, the former executive chairman of Breitbart News, is among Trump's most trusted yet most controversial advisers.

Kushner, the husband of the president's daughter Ivanka Trump, was quickly folded into the commander in chief's inner circle following the election.

The senior White House official was not authorized to discuss changes that have not been formally announced and spoke on condition of anonymity. CNN reports that it was Kushner who made that happen. 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.

Both Cohn and Powell - who both came from the administration directly from Goldman Sachs - are viewed internally as close to Kushner, a dynamic that rankled those in the White House close to Bannon.

"We've had a tremendous success", he told reporters on Air Force One.
