The footage of a heated argument in the oval office, taking place on Friday, is now showing President Trump launching into a tirade at Steve Bannon and Reince Prebius,
Allegedly the argument was about the staff’s failure to fight off the backlash and media surrounding Attorney General Jeff Sessions recusal due to his contacts with Russia.
Apparently Trump had told Bannon and Prebius that they weren’t going to ride on Air Force One to Mar-a-Lago with him, as Ivanka and Jared stared on.
Bannon was filmed with a furious face waving his arms around, showing how heated the argument got.
The Daily Mail has more:
Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner and Sean Spicer were spotted in the background of the footage.
Trump had accused his staff of fumbling the situations with Sessions after the attorney general recused himself from all FBI investigations regarding Russia on Thursday.
The president is said to have then taken it out on his senior staff the following day.
Sources said to CNN the Oval Office lecture had a ‘lot of expletives’ and that ‘nobody has seen him that upset’.
Just days after the furious row, Bannon was pictured on Sunday boarding Air Force One via a separate entrance to the president as they returned to Washington D.C.
It is not unusual for them to board at opposite ends of the aircraft.
Trump learned of Sessions’ decision following a visit with military in Virginia where he had told reporters he had ‘total’ trust in the attorney general and didn’t think he should remove himself.
Sessions announced that he would recuse himself from all investigations involving the presidential campaign in order to save his job, after it was revealed he had met a Russian ambassador twice during the campaign.
