Steve Bannon's ouster would be a blow to conservatives

"I had already beaten all the senators and all the governors, and I didn't know Steve", Trump said, referencing a primary he successfully navigated while Bannon was at Breitbart.

Bannon has reportedly been in a power struggle with Trump son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner and senior economic adviser Gary Cohn.

"Steve is a good guy, but I told them to straighten it out or I will", Mr. Trump said, after ordering a Bannon-Kushner truce late last week. It's a view that continues to find expression in White House immigration policy, all this talk of a Trump "pivot" away from white nationalism aside.

President Trump meets with top military leaders tonight.

Allies of Trump's say he has become more impatient with the infighting - and the overwhelming attention it is receiving in the media.

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough predicted that Bannon was "about to get kicked out of the White House" during his "Morning Joe" show on Wednesday.

Not every Trump insider is numbering Bannon's days. Caputo said that Bannon must "fix things" in White House relationships but dismissed as "hype" the belief that he is about to lose his job. (They met in 2011.) "I'm my own strategist", he added, a phrase he repeated to The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday, when he also called Bannon "a guy who works for me".

Perhaps a little bit of the anger from Trump is about Bannon stealing the spotlight from him in the initial weeks of his administration, but if you believe the insider pundits like those at the Washington Post, it's mainly about both re-election and the Trump kids maintaining the "family brand."

President Trump's business empire has always been a family affair and now his White House appears to be headed in the same direction.

The first public signs of Bannon's decline came when he was removed from the National Security Council, an appointment Trump wasn't fully aware of when he made it official.

"I think that's exactly why he is likely to stay on".

And the words that issued from Spicer's, in a truly freakish Hitler-was- better-than-Assad riff as he denounced the Syrian dictator's use of chemical weapons, were strong grounds for any boss to tell him: "You're fired!" If Bannon goes, it's going to be a victory for those who long for a "conventional" White House to preserve the status quo. We strongly urge you to remove Steve Bannon from the White House immediately.

A staunch early Trump supporter, Flynn is a retired United States Army lieutenant general and was the former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. "They don't want to force Bannon out of there 'cause it's gonna make Trump a better president".

Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page is punching back against allegations that he was the subject of a secret US government court order last summer as part of the FBI's Russian Federation probe.
