More than just his daughter, Ivanka Trump is an adviser to the president and a powerful force within the White House. A Breitbart report on Sunday reveals that the Daily Mail is citing sources who credit Ivanka Trump with having forced Steve Bannon out of the White House.
The article references “Washington sources” close to Ivanka Trump who claim that she pushed out Bannon because of his “far-right views” clashing with her Jewish faith. It also says that Bannon’s departure was “done to save the Presidency” and that this recent development “changes everything” with the Trump presidency.
The Breitbart report goes on to note that, according to an Axios article by reporter Jonathan Swan, Bannon had not “meaningfully advised the president about his response to Charlottesville,” although the two spoke on the phone over the weekend.
Trump defended his remarks in a press conference on Tuesday, saying that there were “good people on both sides” of the protests while condemning the racial groups who were present.
After Trump’s press conference, Bannon praised the president’s performance for standing up to “the braying mob of reporters,” according to Axios.
Bannon also decried the white nationalists, neo-Nazis, and KKK members as “losers … a fringe element” that needed to be “crushed” during an interview with The American Prospect.
“These guys are a collection of clowns,” Bannon said, blaming the media for raising their profile.
During the Tuesday press conference, Ivanka and Jared were in Vermont, on a “pre-planned, two-day vacation,” according to reports.
