Social media users have started picking sides between Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and chief strategist Steve Bannon, following reports that the two have clashed in the White house and that Trump is considering firing Bannon.
Currently, both the hashtags #fireBannon and #fireKushner were trending, with thousands weighing in on the feud.
Earlier this week Bannon was removed from the National Security Council as what staffers say signals a fall from grace inside the administration. The decision also came amid reports that Bannon and Kushner have clashed and developed their own factions of support in the White House.
There was one report from New York Magazine headlined “Trump’s Syria Strike Is Latest Sign of Steve Bannon’s Waning Influence” that said the following:
Two sources close to Bannon told me the former Breitbart executive chairman argued against the [Syria] strike — not because of its questionable constitutionality, but on the grounds that it doesn’t advance Trump’s America First doctrine. “Steve doesn’t think we belong there,” one Bannon ally told me. Bannon’s position lost out to those inside the White House, including Jared Kushner, who argued Trump needed to punish the Assad regime.
The alt-right in particular is calling for Jared Kushner to be fired:
Kushner is a traitor to the American people, we have had enough of his globalist agenda influencing our President. #FireKushner

Choosing between Kushner and Bannon is like asking if you want to be shot or stabbed to death. #FireKushner

We voted for the Bannon-Miller line: no wars, end immigration.
Not the Ivanka-Kushner line: more wars, endless "refugees." #FireKushner

Bannon was right! Kushner is a globalist and a cuck. His interests are not aligned with the American people. Out! Out! Out!#FireKushner

I didn't elect Kushner to nation build overseas. I elected Trump to build up our nation here.
Keep Bannon.#FireKushner. No more globalism.
