Axios reporting Trump unhappy w/ Bannon partly bc of book cover giving Bannon equal billing w/ Trump

https://www.axios.com/steve-bannons-job-in-jeopardy-trump-suspects-him-of-leaking-2472208484.html

How Bannon ran afoul of Trump:

Key West Wing colleagues believe Bannon is an instigator of leaks targeting National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster. The stories have been driven by Breitbart News, where Bannon was executive chairman before joining Trump's presidential campaign as chief executive in August. On Thursday, Trump backed McMaster as "our friend."

Sources close to Trump say he was irritated about Bannon's extensive cooperation with a book by Bloomberg Businessweek's Josh Green, "Devil's Bargain," with a cover that gave Bannon equal billing with Trump.

This was a rerun of one of the key factors that put the chief strategist in Trump's doghouse months ago: a TIME magazine cover dubbing Bannon "THE GREAT MANIPULATOR."



Emphasis added.

2. So many reasons to be unhappy with Bannon, and DT is upset because he's taking some of the spotlight

3. All that's needed to get rid of a Trump appointee is to give him publicity.

4. Take alook at the pic on the book cover... Trump must hate his chin at least as much as Bannon!
