Bannon declares war with Republican leadership in Congress

  Bannon declares war with Republican leadership in Congress In his first interview since leaving the White House, Bannon comes down hard on congressional leaders and disloyalty to Trump.Bannon, in an interview on CBS’s “60 Minutes,” accused Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) of “trying to nullify the 2016 election.” It was Bannon’s first television interview since leaving the White House and returning as executive chairman to Breitbart News, the conservative website he previously led.

WASHINGTON — Hope Hicks , one of President Trump ’s longest serving advisers working in the White House , was formally named communications director on Tuesday, a title that most accurately describes the role she has played for years.

Hope Hicks, one of President Trump’s longest serving advisers working in the White House, was formally named communications director on Tuesday, a title that most accurately describes the role she has played for years.

Ms. Hicks’ appointment was one of a handful announced. Mercedes Schlapp, a Republican strategist and Fox News contributor, will become the senior adviser for strategic communications, adding a new senior staff member to the reshuffled communications team.

It was not immediately clear how Ms. Schlapp’s role would intersect with that of Ms. Hicks and Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary.

Jessica Ditto, another campaign hand who has been serving as deputy communications director, is expected to continue in that role.

Muted backlash to Trump’s bipartisanship signals warning for GOP

  Muted backlash to Trump’s bipartisanship signals warning for GOP Trump has tied his fortune to those who want to shake up the system, not to the Republican Party.But when Trump shocked the nation last week, handing Democrats a major victory by accepting their terms for a clean three-month suspension of the borrowing limit, Manning says he felt no ill will for the president. Instead, he blamed House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for forcing Trump to work with Democrats.

Senior communications adviser Hope Hicks will likely take on the role of White House communications director , according to two sources inside the White House and one outside.

But Ms. Hicks, who is perhaps the most press-shy member of the Trump administration, has been essentially filling the role of Mr. Trump’s communications director since her days on his campaign, when she was one of the only staff members. Until she took over the communications director role in an interim capacity, she was almost constantly by the president’s side when he traveled, and she held sway over what interviews he gave. Outside of Mr. Trump’s family members and his longtime security chief, Keith Schiller, who will leave the White House in the next few weeks, Ms. Hicks is his most trusted aide.

Other changes that were announced appeared aimed in part at sending a message of continuity to a communications team that has been buffeted by nearly constant change for the past month. Raj Shah, who worked at the Republican National Committee and was seen as close to the previous press secretary, Sean Spicer, was elevated to principal deputy press secretary. Steven Cheung, who worked on the Trump campaign, will be the director of strategic response.
