There’s a growing division in the White House, between Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner, and it looks like Bannon is losing. According to Kurt Bardella, a former Breitbart executive, if Kushner wins Trump’s full support, and Bannon is fired, it will be “open warfare” on Trump.
“They’re [Far-right Conservatives] concerned they are about to lose their link to the West Wing and direct access to the president through Steve Bannon,” Bardella explained. “Clearly Steve is under siege right now. The fact that so many on the conservative right so forcefully came out against the actions of the president and strikes in Syria just tells you how much trouble Steve actually really is in.”
Far and Alt-Right conservatives are becoming more and more hostile towards Jared Kushner, even calling him a “jihadist” against them. “They are really going out there publicly, hammering Jared Kushner-aligned strategies because they see Steve could be in jeopardy and could be asked to leave at some point in the near future,” Bardella said.
When AM Joy host Joy Reid asked what would happen if Trump fired Bannon, Bardella described that scenario:
“If Bannon is pushed out it will be open warfare from the outside in…and all of the sudden the pages of Breitbart, who have been incredibly generous to Donald Trump to say the least, will start turning their fire on him or, at the very least, assign blame saying Trump betrayed the conservative right because of Jared Kushner and Liberal Democrats inside the White House have turned them against us.”
