Reports of Trump White House Shake-Up Are 'BS' - But Something's Going On

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Saturday declined to comment to USA Today on personnel matters, but dismissed the White House plans on a major staff shake-up.

White House aides told The New York Times that the president hoped this weekend's Mar-a-Lago meeting would help smooth tensions.

He actually said 'cuck, ' as in "cuckservative, '" the administration official told The Daily Beast.

The two met Friday afternoon after Chinese President Xi Jinping left Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida, in a almost one-hour meeting arranged by White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.

President Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner has no diplomatic experience, but he has become Mr. Trump's point person for high-stakes worldwide...

But while the National Security Council had a powerful role in the past when it came to making policy recommendations to the president, Trump had relied until now on his own close team of advisers, leading to Bannon's appointment to the NSC's principals committee.

Trump reportedly told Bannon and Kushner to "work this out" amid recurring disagreements between the pair before last week's discussion.

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

I want to thank Real Madrid for the opportunity to build a wonderful career at this club, and to my teammates as well". Madrid went on to win the title with Carlo Ancelotti, the current Bayern coach, in charge at the time.

Is President Donald Trump, the man who values loyalty above competence, ready to fire two of the people who were instrumental in helping him win the White House?

While he's aligned with other White House aides, including Trump's senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, Bannon has faced criticism for the troubled roll-out of the president's executive order on immigration and the failed attempt in March to pass health-care legislation.

But the benign explanation for Bannon's removal belies the growing strife between Bannon, Kushner and Gary Cohn, the National Economic Council director.

Aside from calling rival Kushner a "cuck" behind his back, the nationalist reportedly unleashed some fury right to the apple-cheeked real estate scion's face.

Bannon deemed reports that he recently threatened to quit "ridiculous".

Kushner's failure to disclose these meetings with Russian officials was the third time a Trump administration official had not disclosed details about meetings and conversations with Russians. Trump's White House, one perpetually plagued by infighting among aides jockeying for the president's ear, has been sharply divided by a new rivalry, one pitting his powerful son-in-law with unfettered access to the president against the sharp-elbowed ideologue who fueled Trump's populist campaign rhetoric.

Asked aboard Air Force One as he flew to Florida if a staff shakeup was coming, the president said he thought the administration had "already shaken things up".
