Steve Bannon told Jared Kushner he would "Break" him "In Half" and Blew up for Trump Admin Members for Speaking to the Press
Jared Kushner speaks on the short fuse of Steve Bannon in his upcoming memoir...
Jared Kushner has explained in his upcoming memoir that Steve Bannon was a “toxic” member of the White House staff that has threatened him multiple times.
"Bannon single-handedly caused more problems for me than anyone else in my time in Washington. He probably leaked and lied about me more than everyone else combined. He played dirty and dragged me into the mud of the Russia investigation. But now that he was in trouble, I felt like helping him was the right thing to do,"
Jared Kushner wrote in the book.
After Jared Kushner spoke to the NYT in an attempt to squash a story that Trump booted Reince Priebus, the White House chief of staff, from Air Force One, Steven Bannon had become angry with Kushner.
Trump told Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon at the time, “Why are you coming to Florida for the day? I don't need you there. Stay here.” Trump continued, "There was no reason for Sessions to recuse himself, and this is going to unleash a disaster.”
Though Reince Preibus asked Jared Kushner not to reach out to the NYT about the story, Steve Bannon was still angered about it. Steve Bannon said, "How fucking dare you leak on me? If you leak out on me, I can leak out on you 28 ways from Sunday.”
In a separate instance, Jared Kushner explained that Steve Bannon blew up on everybody for confronting him about leaking about Gary Cohn. Jared told Steve, "Steve, you gotta stop leaking on Gary. We're trying to build a team here." In response, Steve Bannon said, "Cohn's the one leaking on me,” and went on to tell Jared Kushner he should stop “undermining the Trump agenda.”
"'Jared, right now, you're the one undermining the president's agenda,' he continued, his eyes intense and voice escalating into a yell. 'And if you go against me, I will break you in half. Don't fuck with me.”
