Florida Republican Says Bannon Needs To Go

22 April 2017

Bill Daley, a former White House chief of staff to President Barack Obama, who got pushed out in a shakeup himself after roughly a year into the job, said it appears that inside the Trump White House there's a struggle for "the soul and brain of the president".

Ros-Lehtinen, who sits on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, argued Bannon's tendency to favor isolationist policy doesn't reflect the county's values.

"From this day forward, it's going to be only America First", Trump said during his inauguration speech.

President Donald Trump is considering major changes in his top-level staff, including replacing White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, according to a Friday report from Axios.

Trump purportedly told the pair to "work this out" amid repeated policy disagreements between them - a recurring media narrative.

The political world waits on Georgia race, Ossoff
With all precincts reporting , Democrat Jon Ossoff led the crowded field of 18 candidates with 48 percent of the vote. The Republican who will now battle Ossoff in the run-off is Karen Handel , a former secretary of state for Georgia.

According to former Trump advisers, Kushner is trying to steer the president towards more mainstream positions, while Bannon is bent on trying to maintain the nationalistic fervour that led to Trump's victory in the November election.

Bannon's ouster from the National Security Council Wednesday was only the latest sign of Kushner's rise, sources said.

There is even a list of potential replacements for Priebus and Bannon being floated around.

He has said he's determined to continue pressing for key issues that helped propel Trump to the White House: cracking down on illegal immigration and scrapping the federal regulations he says compose an overbearing "administrative state".

On Friday night, Priebus held a meeting at Mar-a-Lago with Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and Bannon to "smooth things over", a senior administration official said.

That will mean figuring out how to occupy McGee, who doesn't have to worry about a scoring threat in the post against Portland. Warriors coach Steve Kerr confirmed to reporters the forward was a doubt for Wednesday's Game 2 with the Trail Blazers.

Priebus' message? "Stop with the palace intrigue" and focus on the president's agenda.

On Thursday we learned the fight between Bannon, Trump's Chief White House Strategist, and Jared Kushner, his senior advisor and son-in-law, has escalated to "nonstop".

White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said the Journal story was an attempt to distract from Trump's "bold and decisive" action in ordering missile strikes on Syria, the Senate's confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch and the visits of foreign leaders this week.

On Thursday, the president held a briefing with his team, continuing what Secretary of State Rex Tillerson described as a "very deliberative process", and then chose to proceed to Thursday night's Tomahawk missile strikes.

"We've had a tremendous success", he told reporters on Air Force One.

In their first-round series against Utah, the Clippers did not fully employ that tactic until their Game 2 win over the Jazz. Griffin and Jordan had a field day, scoring 24 and 18 points respectively, and taking 32 shots between them.
