"The President's pick for the Supreme Court (a decision that has generational impact) was confirmed today, we hosted multiple foreign leaders this week and the President took bold and decisive military action against Syria last night". Bannon reportedly did not support the strike on a Syrian airfield that the US carried out Thursday night in response to a chemical attack Trump has blamed on the Syrian government.
Kushner is Trump's loyal son-in-law and is therefore not likely to go anywhere because in Trump world, family and loyalty are everything. The omissions also raise some eyebrows, given the current federal and congressional investigations of the Trump administration's ties to Russian Federation.
Trump knows for a fact if he dumped these two guys his approval rating would skyrocket (depending on who he replaced them with).
"Things are happening, but it's very unclear the president's willing to pull that trigger", Allen reported hearing from a source.
Axios didn't name any potential replacements for Bannon.
White House sources told New York Magazine that Trump's advisors have arranged themselves into two competing factions: "the nationalists", led by Bannon and Stephen Miller, and "the Democrats", represented by Kushner and Ivanka Trump. He keeps a list of Trump's campaign promises on his wall, checking off those fulfilled. Top officials are known to speak regularly to the press, with details of private interactions - and oftentimes contradictory versions of events - spilling into the pages of Beltway publications.

Noting that Bannon didn't promptly quit his White House gig as he once promised, Colbert turned Bannon's choice of insult around on him. After landing in Mar-a-Lago Thursday, Trump huddled for a lengthy briefing from his top national security officials in a secure facility installed at the resort, going over options with Defense Secretary James Mattis, McMaster, and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
"Job done", the official said.
While Bannon favors Trump's controversial travel ban and the rolling back of environmental regulations and protections for transgender students, Kushner is attempting to exert a moderating force on the president.
Kushner's allies - economic director Gary Cohn and deputy national security adviser Dina Powell - also appear to be rising in influence. And now Kushner has a prime seat at the president's table. "Here's the reason there's no middle ground", Mr. Bannon growled.
But that NY developer's knack for self-promotion-particularly for totally substance-less self-promotion-may very well be a double-edged sword for Kushner. But we're talking about Donald Trump here.
The axe may fall soon on Steve Bannon and Reince Priebus.
