Trump says 'I like Steve' Bannon; won't definitively say he has confidence

But the shiv, delivered in the pages of The New York Post on Tuesday, belies both Bannon's tenure and prominence in Trump's brain trust, a relationship that slowly blossomed over at least five years - through shared aides, radio interviews and eventually a formal hire.

"I like Steve, but you have to remember he was not involved in my campaign until very late", Trump told New York Post columnist Michael Goodwin.

In more than half a dozen interviews during the campaign with Bannon on Breitbart's radio show, Trump laid out his vision for leading the country, with Bannon sometimes playing the role of coach.

Trump's early months in office have been filled with infighting between his aides.

"I know Steve. Steve is a very bright guy", Christie said. It was a rare public warning shot heard across Washington.

According to CNN, President Trump made moves over the weekend to smooth over the growing tensions in the West Wing between Kushner and Bannon. The day before, he suggested that the use of barrel bombs by Syrian President Bashar Assad's government might lead to further military action. It comes as another indication that the president may be edging away from the conservative-populist ideologue as an inner-circle rift plays out in the White House.

Spicer has called his comments about the Holocaust "inappropriate and insensitive". The three are largely responsible for Trump's Nationalist America First Agenda that brought rural Americans in record numbers to the polls.

As President, Trump is rapidly winning the acclaim of the architects of that failed foreign policy such as Elliott Abrams while his non-interventionist campaign rhetoric feels like a distant, fading memory.

Trump and Xi recently held talks at Trump's estate in Florida.

Trump's embattled right-hand man has seen a slew of negative coverage over the last few days.

However, Jeff Sessions, Trump's attorney general, announced last week that there would be "a review of existing policies in the areas of charging, sentencing, and marijuana" as part of the Justice Department's efforts to reduce violent crime according to a letter from the department. The two reportedly met over the weekend to do just that.

Meanwhile, Democratic lawmakers have been calling for Republican Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, to withdraw himself from all further investigations into possible links between the Trump team and Russian Federation. The former TV producer and right-wing documentary filmmaker also served as CEO of Breitbart News. He now runs Global Energy Capital, a firm describes as focused on energy sectors in emerging markets.

Trump's button on the conversation sounds particularly damning.
