An Oval Office meeting this week turned contentious at times as top advisers – from inside and outside the White House – discussed with President Trump how to confront a political landscape that is growing problematic for Republicans ahead of the 2018 midterms, sources with direct knowledge of the session told Fox News.
Those in attendance Wednesday included White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway, Communications Director Hope Hicks, Political Director Bill Stepien, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, former campaign digital guru Brad Parscale and others.
Some outside advisers like Lewandowski “rang the alarm” that the president was not being well served by his current political operation at White House — which is run by Stepien — and that changes needed to be made there and at the Republican National Committee to counter potential Democratic gains in 2018.
Both Lewandowski and former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus, who privately visited the president on Tuesday, were in agreement that significant changes are needed, according to a White House source. Though the two men have butted heads in the past, they both expressed concerns about the 2018 midterms and the current trajectory.
Apparently some were upset that the RNC wasn’t supportive enough the Prez, despite having record setting campaign donations.
