Fox News and Wall Street Journal boss Rupert Murdoch has reportedly “repeatedly urged” President Donald Trump to kick White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon to the curb.

New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman reported on Monday that Murdoch’s latest demand to get rid of Bannon came at a recent dinner with White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner before Trump headed off to Bedminster, New Jersey. Kushner, who has tried multiple times to shiv Bannon and remove him from the White House, “has been in open warfare” with Bannon since the spring, according to Haberman, and has clearly sided with his fellow Democrats and globalists in the West Wing and outside the White House.

As the Times noted, Bannon “embodies the defiant populism at the core of” Trump’s agenda, and Trump forged a “foxhole friendship” with Bannon during the 2016 campaign when Bannon stood by Trump when nearly everyone else ran as far away from Trump as possible, especially after the release of the Access Hollywood tapes.

Bannon’s nationalism may be why Murdoch has been urging Trump to dump Bannon in private and using his media properties like the Wall Street Journal to criticize him. Murdoch and his Journal, as Breitbart News noted, just last week used national security adviser H.R. McMaster as their “latest weapon in their continuing battle against Trump’s America-first agenda and movement that enabled Trump to shock the world on election night.”

Murdoch has always been at odds with Bannon on key issues like illegal immigration and increases in foreign guest-worker visas.

As Breitbart News has pointed out, Murdoch’s Journal rooted for former Florida Governor Jeb Bush to win the GOP nomination while not backing down from his “act of love” remarks about illegal immigrants and support for open borders. Murdoch’s Journal cheered for Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and John McCain’s (R-AZ) Gang of Eight “amnesty bill,” preventing conservative icons like Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin from even presenting counterarguments on the air in what Limbaugh said was “quite telling” about the direction Fox News was going.

In March, Murdoch’s Journal also said Bannon’s support for economic nationalism and border security were unacceptable positions that caused “polarization” even though, as Breitbart News noted, “those issues united working-class Democrats and Republicans in the Rust Belt to deliver Trump his election-night win.” In addition, as Breitbart News pointed out, “the day after Murdoch reportedly requested to sit next [former President Barack Obama’s confidante and top adviser Valerie] Jarrett at a dinner in 2014, he penned an op-ed in his Wall Street Journal in which Murdoch declared that amnesty for illegal immigrants and an unlimited number of high-tech guest-worker visas for Silicon Valley just ‘can’t wait.’”
