Steve Bannon And Ivanka Trump Apparently Got In A HUGE Screaming Match
According to Bob Woodward’s upcoming book, Fear: Trump in the White House, then-senior White House adviser Steve Bannon reportedly exploded at President Trump‘s daughter Ivanka in an intense screaming match.
“You’re a goddamn staffer!” he yelled at her, according to the Washington Post. The outburst came as Steve was informing Ivanka that she had to go through then-White House chief of staff Reince Priebus to talk to the president, like any other Trump staffer.
“You walk around this place and act like you’re in charge, and you’re not,” he reportedly roared. “You’re on staff!”
“I’m not a staffer! I’ll never be a staffer,” she fired back, according to Bob. “I’m the first daughter.”
Still, her alleged claim ignores the fact that the president appointed her as his senior adviser, in a move that Cindy McCain and other critics have denounced as “nepotism,” according to multiple outlets.
Trump himself addressed the book during an Oval Office photo opportunity yesterday: “The book means nothing. It’s a work of fiction,” the president told reporters. As for Bob Woodward, Trump added, “He likes to get publicity, sell some books.”
“This book is nothing more than fabricated stories, many by former disgruntled employees, told to make the President look bad,” press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. “While it is not always pretty, and rare that the press actually covers it, President Trump has broken through the bureaucratic process to deliver unprecedented successes for the American people.”
