Jonathan Easley writes at The Hill that White House chief of staff Reince Priebus and chief strategist Stephen Bannon deny that they are not getting along despite recent stories to the contrary.
In a joint phone call with The Hill on Wednesday, White House chief of staff Reince Priebus and chief strategist Stephen Bannon furiously pushed back at reports of division, saying there is no friction between them.
Trump aides are particularly angry with a story published Tuesday by the conservative outlet Bannon once ran, Breitbart News, in which anonymous sources blamed Priebus for tumult at the White House and suggested that the chief of staff’s job was in immediate jeopardy.
But Bannon and Priebus insisted that they’re working closely and amicably together and that reports to the contrary are false.
“Reince is doing an amazing job,” Bannon told The Hill. “We are executing on President Trump’s agenda in record time. That’s because Reince is getting the job done.”
