Bannon Lost To Kushner In Syria Strike Debate

Bannon Lost To Kushner In Syria Strike Debate

Kushner's lawyer Jamie Gorelick said the omission was merely an "administrative error" made during a "very pressed time" as Trump prepared to take on the presidency.

The sources said Bannon and Kushner have been engaged in a consistent battle in which they get into "face to face" confrontations, the Daily Beast reported. And Spicer tweeted a picture of Trump in a meeting about the Syria strike surrounded by Priebus, Bannon, Kushner and other top advisers.

Bannon, who was appointed to the council to guide and watch over then-national security adviser Michael Flynn, remains White House chief strategist. He even told Bannon-hilariously, given his own huge set of responsibilities-that he was getting booted off the National Security Council because he was overstretched. Who ultimately prevails in the ideological standoff between blocs led by Kushner and Bannon, his chief strategist, could determine the trajectory of Trump's term in the months or years ahead. Being married to Ivanka might protect him-it seems clear that Kushner thinks it will.

Bannon was unable to persuade Trump, who instead ordered a massive launch of Tomahawk cruise missiles against a Syrian airbase from which the chemical attack is believed to have originated.

The culture in the White House is dysfunctional because the man leading the administration is dysfunctional.

Bannon, meanwhile, was once seen as untouchable. He has said Kushner is a Democrat, according to The Times.

One Trump aide, who sits on the Kushner side of the divide, bluntly acknowledged this tension and said it could be a reason for the President to not throw Bannon overboard for fear of what he may do to the presidency he helped build. Aside from Kushner being Secretary of Everything, Ivanka ally and adviser Dina Powell is now deputy national security adviser. But we're talking about Donald Trump here. The Journal reported that Cohn is among those being considered to replace Priebus. Several associates said the president had quietly expressed annoyance over the credit Mr. Bannon had received for setting the agenda - and Mr. Trump was not pleased by the "President Bannon" puppet-master theme promoted by magazines, late-night talk shows and Twitter.

The word gained political potency during the 2016 election in the portmanteau "cuckservative" (cuck + conservative) used to imply that the mainstream conservatives of the Jeb Bush variety are weak and effeminate.
And, as they say, in Washington D.C. positioning is everything.
