Is Bannon in peril? Trump comments worry his populist base

Is Bannon in peril? Trump comments worry his populist base

As for Bannon, before joining the campaign last summer as its chief executive officer, he was informally advising Trump.

Bannon was credited with masterminding Donald Trump's election campaign past year and was swiftly installed as the President's right-hand man following his shock victory. Trump's new national security adviser, Army Lt. Gen. Henry McMaster, ousted Bannon from the NSC; Trump speaks regularly with Defense Secretary James Mattis; and Rex Tillerson is resurgent, meeting with his counterpart in Russian Federation on Wednesday.

Trump ordered Bannon to sit down with his other top adviser, Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, to bury the ideological hatchet.

To the extent that the internecine wars are about the direction and future of the Trump presidency, the timing could not be worse for Bannon - in the aftermath of Trump's missile strike on Syria and his Florida summit with Chinese Leader Xi Jinping, some analysts detect a retreat from the isolationist cocktail of his America First rhetoric and Bannon's "destruction of the administrative state", as Trump aligns himself more with the Washington foreign policy and national security establishment.

USA first lady Melania Trump has accepted an apology and damages from the publisher of the Daily Mail newspaper for reporting rumors about her time as a model, the two parties in the lawsuit said Wednesday. He told Dana Perino of Fox News that Trump wanted to be "very clear" that he won the election under his own steam and that the line had been "blurred up a little bit" regarding where credit should go.

"The fundamental assessment is that if they want to win the White House in 2020, they're not going to do it the way they did in 2016, because the family brand would not sustain the collateral damage", said one well-connected Republican operative, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss the president's family. Until recently he was also on the National Security Council - despite minimal qualifications - however, he was recently removed after a tenure of less than three months.

Kushner enjoys a broad portfolio in the White House and, most importantly, influence with Trump. The role of the hard-right turn was to empower another RINO who is trying to impress The New York Times, a paper that despises him.

"I think firing Bannon would be a huge mistake for Trump", conservative radio host Steve Deace told the Times. The original travel ban, a Bannon effort, is mired in the courts, and Trump appears to be backing away from some of the economic policies that Bannon championed.

The president's irritation with Bannon could have roots in the adviser's high profile in the early days of the administration. "Mr. Trump thank you very much for enjoying us on the initial Breitbart News Daily show". Feehery also writes a regular column for The Hill.

All the news that's unfit to print - The New York Times has hired an alumnus of The Wall Street Journal editorial page, Bret Stephens, who is known for casting doubt on what he has called "the purported threat of global warming". He added, "But I make my own decision".

"When I get attacked by these people at a low level, I have to attack back".
