While the White House has denied reports about personnel changes, Trump appears to have made some shifts that seem to favor Kushner's more moderate views over Bannon's far-right views.
News broke Wednesday morning that Bannon had been removed from the National Security Council.
While Bannon wasn't the only one affected by the NSC's reorganization, it was surprising, given that Trump signed an executive order in late January putting Bannon on the council.
Kushner's responsibilities have grown in recent weeks to include leading a new White House office and traveling to Iraq. It's just the latest country that's been added to his foreign policy portfolio.
On Thursday, Trump ordered missile strikes on a Syrian air base in retaliation for a chemical attack on Syrian civilians.
"Tonight, I call on all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria," he said in a statement following the strikes Thursday night.
That was a departure from his so-called "America First" policy, which was championed by Bannon.
"From this day forward, it’s going to be only America First," Trump said during his inauguration speech.
And when the White House released a photo of Trump being briefed after the strikes, Twitter was quick to notice that Bannon didn't have a seat at the table. Kushner did.
