In the latest escalation of internal White House strife, President Donald Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon has reportedly taken to deriding Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner by calling him a ‘Democrat.’

‘Here’s the reason there’s no middle ground,’ Bannon told Kushner in one clash, the New York Times reported, citing someone with knowledge of the situation. ‘You’re a Democrat.’

The story outlines a tense clash between those loyal to Bannon, a nationalist credited with pushing take-no-prisoners positions on trade, healthcare, and immigration, and those with more moderating influence, led by Kushner.

Bannon remains close to Stephen Miller, a former close aide to Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Kushner is joined by Gary Cohn, the head of the president’s council on economic advisors, who was alongside Trump during his meeting with CEOs at the White House this week. Dina Powell, like Cohn a former Goldman Sachs alum, is considered part of the clique.

Ivanka Trump, who it was revealed met with Planned Parenthood and who has pushed softer issues like women’s empowerment, recently got her own West Wing Office.

Cohn is a registered Democrat who gave up his job running Goldman Sachs to join the White House staff. Those close to Bannon have referred to him as ‘Globalist Gary,’ according to CNN.

The clash in aides and ideologies appears to be somewhat by design.
