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.
