President Donald Trumpdeclined to offer his full support for Steve Bannon, one of his top advisers, and instead minimise Bannons influence in coming him elected to the White House.
New York Post columnist Michael Goodwin asked Trump if he still had confidence in Bannon, and the president did not say he did. Instead, he made it seem like Bannon, who led Trumps campaign beginning in August, was in the right place at the right time. In November, Trump sounded Bannon, widely realise to be the inventor of his populist approach, to be his senior consultant in the White House.
I like Steve, but you have to remember he was not involved in my safarus until very late, Trump told Goodwin. I had already hit all the senators and all the governors, and I didnt know Steve. Im my own strategist and it wasnt like I was going to change strategies because I was fronting crooked Hillary.
Bannon has reportedly clashed with Jared Kushner, Trumps son-in-law. The two have drastically different vogues and philosophies Bannon is an ideological reformer who wants a deconstruction of the administrative nation, while Kushner, until recently, was a Democrat.
Last week, Bannon was expelled from his persona on the National Security Council something Kushner feed. Trump also told the Post that he had counselled Kushner and Bannon that they needed to resolve their differences.
Steve is a good guy, but I told them to arrange it out or I will, he said.
