Jared Kushner omits some foreign contacts on security form

09 April 2017, 02:54 | Santos Harmon

The newspaper reported that Trump's instruction followed several internal fights between Bannon, Kushner, the top economic adviser Gary D. Cohn, and chief of staff Reince Priebus.

There is even a list of potential replacements for Priebus and Bannon being floated around.

Bannon developed ties with the white nationalist movement during his time at Breitbart, and he has used his White House perch to push policies such as Trump's failed Muslim bans and reducing immigration. The New York Times reported that Bannon simply could not compromise with Kushner on anything because the latter is a member of the Democratic Party. "One senior official pointed to Trump's interview Wednesday with the New York Times, during which at least five senior White House staffers, as well as Pence, crowded into the Oval Office".

"Bannon still has huge interest in national security and he'll still offer advice", said Alex Ward, an analyst at the Atlantic Council think tank who closely watches Trump's foreign policy.

Bannon's name was removed from the National Security Council's Principals Committee earlier this week, sparking talk that the president's controversial chief strategist may be losing his foothold in the White House.

Life can be pretty bleak under President Donald Trump, and you have to take your good news where you can get it.

Another Twitter account offered a more aggressive solution on Bannon and Kushner: "They're both unqualified hired by someone who's unqualified".

Who Is Susan Rice? Obama Official 'Unmasked' Trump Associates In Surveillance Controversy
He characterized her as "very personable, likeable, charming, smart, funny, down to earth" but also someone with sharp elbows. Rice added that it's not unusual to request the identities of people caught on intelligence surveillance.

Asked about the article, a White House spokeswoman said it was "completely false".

The former Trump advisers said Kushner, husband of Trump daughter Ivanka Trump, is trying to tug the president into a more mainstream position, while Bannon is trying to keep aflame the nationalist fervor that carried Trump to his unexpected election victory on November 8.

Colbert said he "wasn't surprised" because there was "known friction" between the two.

According to Politico, the main source of disagreement between Bannon and Kushner centers around policy differences.

Bannon's side blames Kushner and his allies for trying to moderate Trump and move him away from some of his populist campaign promises.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is reportedly in the running.

"These reports are as absurd as all of the other erroneous gossip columns that have preceded them", assistant press secretary Michael Short told ABC News.
