Jared Kushner ‘worried’ Steve Bannon is about to drop ‘a new round’ of damaging leaks about him: report

Published

The long-simmering feud between Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner and top White House political strategist Steve Bannon is reportedly back on.

The New York Times’ Glenn Thrush reports that Bannon and Kushner have ended the truce that they struck a little more than two months ago after President Donald Trump sat them down and told them to stop leaking damaging information about each other.

Thrush also says that Kushner is “worried Bannon is pushing a new round of negative stories about him” that would compound the negative press he’s received over the past month for his contacts with the head of a Russian state bank during the 2016 presidential transition.

Bannon and Kushner’s allies have regularly accused the two men of leaking dirt on each other. Bannon ally Roger Stone first accused Kushner of leaking “fake news” about Bannon to MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough in April, while Scarborough earlier this month claimed Bannon was trying to “sideline” Kushner in the administration by leaking stories about his Russian contacts.

"It’s been what, like three months since... me and everyone else haven’t been able to get outside and have a good time. So yeah, it feels good to get amongst it," he said.

Parts of London and other cities, deserted during lockdown, sprang to life as people dressed up and came out for "Super Saturday" -- the day England's hospitality sector reopened for the first time since March.

Trump’s angry words and Coronavirus surge darken Independence Day weekend in America

Published

on

The United States marked an unusually somber Independence Day on Saturday, with President Donald Trump bashing domestic opponents and China -- but praising the country's coronavirus response, despite a record surge in cases.

Across the country, virus fears dampened or nixed Main Street parades, backyard barbecues and family reunions on a day when Americans typically celebrate their 1776 declaration of independence from Britain.

Instead of adopting a unifying tone, Trump -- facing a tough re-election and eager to mobilize his political base -- railed against protesters demanding racial justice after unarmed African American George Floyd was killed by a white police officer.
