Republican President Donald Trump’s two most trusted whisperers, son-in-law Jared Kushner and chief strategist Steve Bannon, have agreed to “bury the hatchet” in their growing rivalry for their boss’s favor, according to The Washington Post.

The two “had increasingly clashed in recent weeks over the policy direction of the White House, including issues such as trade, taxes and immigration.”

“Kushner and other aides worried that Bannon’s fixation on “deconstructing” government had not served Trump well in the first months of his presidency.”

“As the drama spilled out into the open and onto newspaper front pages, Trump — a devotee of hard-copy newspapers — was irritated to find the dispute dominating the news cycle while his order authorizing a missile strike in Syria and three meetings with world leaders faded into the background, according to one senior official.”
