If Trump critics have been referring to Bannon for some time as president Bannon, then maybe it is time to start calling Jared Kushner “Prince Jared”? Just saying.
Media has zeroed in on tensions between Jared and Bannon. But with trappings of Kushner’s family ties with the president, those tensions are all the more critical.
Of course media has been discussing the possible exit of Bannon — whether wishful thinking or not on their part.
Then it is reported Trump asked them to bury the hatchet or disagreement. The problem of course is which one wins out in these constant, ongoing battles.
But Jared should start to realize he is not royalty, we didn’t elect him. It’s known Kushner is a long-time Democrat. So his degree of influence is not exactly reassuring to me.
Prince Jared Takes Charge
Shortly after Donald Trump entered the White House, his chief strategist Steve Bannon told a friend that he had a premonition of impending disaster: “I expect to be out of here in six months,” he reportedly said, “and it’ll be Jared who runs me out.”
He was, of course, referring to Jared Kushner, the president’s 36-year-old son-in-law, who despite his youth and lack of government experience, has amassed more power than anyone else in the White House, including Bannon, Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Vice President Mike Pence.
It is Kushner who arranged this week’s summit meeting at Mar-a-Lago between Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping—a meeting Kushner set up with the aim of improving relations between the two countries rather than confronting Beijing, as Bannon would have preferred.
