With reports swirling around about potential White House shakeups and Steve Bannon supposedly on thin ice, #FireKushner blew up and became a major trend on Twitter tonight.

Various reports this week have documented the tensions between Bannon and Jared Kushner recently. In particular, there was one report from New York Magazine headlined “Trump’s Syria Strike Is Latest Sign of Steve Bannon’s Waning Influence,” which said the following:

Two sources close to Bannon told me the former Breitbart executive chairman argued against the [Syria] strike — not because of its questionable constitutionality, but on the grounds that it doesn’t advance Trump’s America First doctrine. “Steve doesn’t think we belong there,” one Bannon ally told me. Bannon’s position lost out to those inside the White House, including Jared Kushner, who argued Trump needed to punish the Assad regime.

Politico is reporting tonight that both men had a “bury-the-hatchet meeting officiated by” President Trump at Mar-a-Lago, but there are still a lot of Trump supporters on Twitter calling on the president to #FireKushner to the point where it became a major Twitter trending topic:
