Bannon v. Kushner

What is pretty obvious, from afar, is that in the war between Steve Bannon (nationalist) and Jared Kushner (globalist), Jared won.

The Daily Mail is reporting:

Donald Trump’s controversial aide Steve Bannon was ‘pushed out’ by his daughter Ivanka and her husband because his far-Right views clashed with their Jewish faith, according to Washington sources…

First daughter Ivanka converted to Orthodox Judaism when she wed millionaire businessman Jared Kushner in 2009…

Ivanka has praised Judaism for creating ‘an amazing blueprint’ for family life and has said she keeps a kosher home and observes the rules of Shabbat, the Jewish Sabbath, including not working or using electronics.

Meanwhile in a Vanity Fair piece titled “Steve Bannon Readies His Revenge: The war on Jared Kushner is about to go nuclear”, Gabe Sherman describes machinations Kushner took to get Bannon fired, as well as overtures implied in Bannon’s exit strategy:

On the morning he was being ousted as Donald Trump’s chief strategist last Friday, Steve Bannon had already turned the page. “Why do you sound unfazed?” a friend asked Bannon as news of his demise ricocheted across the web. “Because,” Bannon replied, “we’re going to war.” Hours later, Bannon was calling into the editorial meeting at Breitbart News, rallying his troops to continue the battles he waged inside the White House. “We have a duty to the country to be the vanguard of ‘The Movement,’” he told his staff, according to one person on the call. Bannon’s main targets are the West Wing’s coterie of New York Democrat “globalists”—Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner and former Goldman Sachs president Gary Cohn—as well as the “hawks,” comprised of National Security Adviser H.R McMaster and his deputy, Dina Powell. “He wants to beat their ideas into submission,” Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow told me. “Steve has a lot of things up his sleeve.”

This is going to get interesting.
