A Daily Mail report has cited sources giving President Trump’s daughter Ivanka credit for the removal of Steve Bannon from the White House.
The article cites “Washington sources” when it says Bannon was “pushed out” by Ivanka because his ‘far-right’ views clashed with her Jewish faith.
“Jared and Ivanka helped push him out. They were concerned about how they were being viewed by the Jewish community,” claimed a source.
The Daily Mail reports, while citing a source close to Ivanka, that Bannon’s removal from the White House was “done to save the Presidency,” claiming his departure “changes everything” with the Trump presidency.
A report from Axios reporter Jonathan Swan claims Bannon had not “meaningfully advised the president about his response to Charlottesville,” despite the pair speaking over the phone at the weekend.
According to Axios, Bannon praised the President’s performance after the press conference on Tuesday in which Trump said there were “good people on both sides,” while condemning the extremist groups present in Charlottesville. Bannon was happy that the President stood up to “the braying mob of reporters.”
Shortly after leaving the White House, Bannon returned as executive chairman of Breitbart News but explained he was still committed to helping Trump fulfill his agenda despite the opposition from Democrats and some within his own party.
“If the Republican Party on Capitol Hill gets behind the president on his plans and not theirs, it will all be sweetness and light, be one big happy family,” Bannon said in an interview with the Washington Post on Saturday. “No administration in history has been so divided among itself about the direction about where it should go.”
Trump thanked Bannon in a tweet on Friday before adding Breitbart News would now become a larger competitor to the ‘fake news’ of the media.
“I want to thank Steve Bannon for his service. He came to the campaign during my run against Crooked Hillary Clinton – it was great! Thanks S,” Trump said. “Steve Bannon will be a tough and smart new voice at @BreitbartNews…maybe even better than ever before. Fake News needs the competition!”
