Trump Indicates Steve Bannon Is Actually On The Chopping Block

White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has had a torrid few weeks.

Trump's aides complain of a lack of clear and consistent guidance from the President-and his senior-most staffers rely on proximity to his ear to try to make their case.

To be sure, this president's operation does not appear to function as a normal White House operation, and perhaps the traditional rules no longer apply.

Trump delivered a stern order late last week at his Mar-a-lago resort in Florida, when he bluntly told his top advisers to "work this out".

Rep. Steve Cohen says it is likely that President Donald Trump's son-in-law will determine the president's policy on marijuana.

It's clear that Bannon's fate - almost a week later - still hangs in the balance.

Meanwhile, Bannon's former media outfit, the extreme right-wing Breitbart, has launched scathing criticism of Kushner, questioning his failure to separate himself from business interests and describing his "thin resume in diplomacy".

New Nintendo Direct scheduled for April 12
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the big Switch game for April but beyond that, the system's release schedule looks a little spotty. Nintendo says they are focusing on Arms and Splatoon 2 , but global directs ALWAYS have a new game announcement.

Bannon's mistake: He did little to build alliances and a personal retinue within the White House, while his rivals did the opposite.

Specifically, he read from the interview that Michael Goodwin conducted with President Donald Trump in the latest edition of the New York Post, where Trump is seemingly distancing himself from Bannon. Indeed, one way Trump can help improve his popularity is to stop picking so many petty, pointless fights - and one strategy for that is to get rid of Steve Bannon. But the president said yesterday keep in mind Steve Bannon came in August and by that time I had already vanquished all the senators and governors on the republican side, I think that he was trying to diminish Steve Bannon's role and he also relayed to Maria Bartiromo that he told Steve Bannon I am exhausted of the fighting go work it out.

A White House spokeswoman confirmed to CNN on Tuesday night that Trump spoke to the New York Post and the quotes in the story are accurate and stand for themselves.

While Trump once thrived amid the chaotic backbiting beneath him, he has grown exhausted with infighting among his staff.

"I think it's important to recognize the value of the base. They're not there to serve themselves", New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a rival-turned-supporter of Trump, said on CNN's "New Day". They were leaving — if I didn't win this election, you would have lost your vehicle industry to Mexico and to other countries.

"Cuckservative", a portmanteau of "cuckold" and "conservative", has become a favorite slur on the right, used like a sexually and racially charged version of "RINO", a Republican In Name Only. On Friday, Trump chief of staff Reince Priebus apparently brokered a meeting for the men to try and smooth out some of their differences.
