Breitbart writers told to curb attacks against Jared Kushner, Trump advisor

Two sources tell Darcy that Breitbart writers have been told by senior editors to back off slamming Kushner, just days after Kushner reportedly complained personally to Trump about the beating that he was receiving.

Business Insider reported that senior editors at the right-wing news site, known for its close ties to the Trump administration, told employees to stop writing critical stories of Jared Kushner, a senior White House advisor.

Politico reported on Wednesday that Bannon, who was abruptly removed from the Principals Committee of the National Security Council earlier in the day, considered leaving the White House entirely as a result of conflict with Kushner.

Mr. Bannon officially resigned from Breitbart News last November and has said he is no longer involved with the website.

A senior official told the media that Trump gave the former Breitbart man an ultimatum following a nightmare week wherein the chief strategist found himself increasingly isolated within the White House, Axios reports.

Scarborough pondered if Bannon will leave the White House or simply hang on with no authority, as Trump will be loyal to his family.

White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus ordered the meeting at the request of the president, according to reports.

Bannon and Kushner attempted to work out their differences during a peace brokering meeting at an out of the way table.

Many contend Bannon's influence within the Executive is slipping as Kushner takes on a wider range of projects, which included his recent envoy trip to Iraq. Aides have claimed that Bannon has accused the Kushner side of attempting to push him out of his position as the right hand to President Trump. The story got to be so relevant that President Trump, who thrives in chaos, called for an end to the in fighting.
