President Donald Trump is backtracking from his support of Steve Bannon

Trump said he had already jumped major hurdles in the campaign by that time, beating "all the senators and all the governors" before he met Bannon. "I'm my own strategist".

A Daily Beast report on Thursday said Bannon called Kushner a "cuck" and "globalist", terms familiar to "alt-right" conspiracy theorists.

TRUMP: "I like Steve, but you have to remember he was not involved in my campaign until very late". "They are extremely capable, highly qualified people who love to win and know how to win".

However, Jeff Sessions, Trump's attorney general, announced last week that there would be "a review of existing policies in the areas of charging, sentencing, and marijuana" as part of the Justice Department's efforts to reduce violent crime according to a letter from the department. Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.

Last week, when Bannon suffered through a bad news cycle, following his removal from the National Security Council, Axios quoted "a close Bannon ally outside of the White House", who offered an ominous prediction: "I see some bad press in future". As I say in the magazine this week, the Defence Secretary Jim Mattis and the National Security Adviser HR McMaster are now in the ascendancy on national security matters.

President Trump confirmed that top aides Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner have been infighting, admitting that he "told them to straighten it out or I will".

There's some truth to Trump's rejection of the idea that Bannon wasn't brought in to help him shift his strategy. Next time, in 2020, we'll have had 12 years of Obama and Clinton, Hillary will be in her mid-seventies, Trump will be gone, and a new generation of Republican leaders like Rubio and Cruz and Ryan and Cotton and Haley and Sasse will still be in their forties.

It's a lesson learned by Trump's first campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who was pushed out of his role after clashing with the president's children about the direction of the campaign.

"[Corey] knew there was a battle brewing".

Bannon was asked specifically to respond to a report by MSNBC host Joe Scarborough that he has told his colleagues, "If my talents aren't needed here, I can take them somewhere else".

Lewandowski lost. The source described the "weekly Monday morning family meeting" as a "summary execution".

And not only did President Obama and the First Lady, Michelle Obama attend, but he made a point of having his daughters be present each year to learn about the importance of the holiday.

Of course, the wild card here is this: If Bannon is eventually ousted, does he train Breitbart's sights on Trump?
