Senior officials in the Trump administration revealed that Bannon complained that Kushner was trying to push him out of positions of authority in the administration. Recently, Bannon was removed from hisNational Security Council post by President Trump. According to a story run byThe Daily Beast, Bannon has been calling Kushner, who is Jewish, a "globalist," which many believe to have anti-semitic overtones. Bannon is a self-described nationalist, which many believe ties him to the alt-right, a group that has taken a lot of criticism for seemingly racist views.
