Social media users on Friday started picking sides between President Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and chief strategist Stephen Bannon, following reports that the two have clashed in the White house and that Trump is considering ousting Bannon.
Late in the evening, both the hashtags #fireBannon and #fireKushner were trending, with thousands weighing in on the feud.
Earlier in the week Bannon was removed from the National Security Council as what staffers say signals a fall from grace inside the administration. The decision also came amid reports that Bannon and Kushner have clashed and developed their own factions of support in the White House.
Early Friday, reports emerged that Trump was considering ousting Bannon, as well as Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, altogether.
The White House has denied reports of internal strife.
By 10:30 p.m. Friday more than 100,000 tweets on the subject had caused the two figures to trend.
Kushner is a traitor to the American people, we have had enough of his globalist agenda influencing our President. #FireKushner— Baked Alaska (@bakedalaska) April 7, 2017
Nobody voted for Jared Kushner #FireKushner— Kaivan Shroff (@KaivanShroff) April 7, 2017
Choosing between Kushner and Bannon is like asking if you want to be shot or stabbed to death. #FireKushner— Tony Posnanski (@tonyposnanski) April 8, 2017
We voted for the Bannon-Miller line: no wars, end immigration.— Stone Guest (@pietrogasti) April 8, 2017
Not the Ivanka-Kushner line: more wars, endless "refugees." #FireKushner
Bannon was right! Kushner is a globalist and a cuck. His interests are not aligned with the American people. Out! Out! Out!#FireKushner— TroubleSpeak (@Troublespeak) April 8, 2017
