Over the last week, Donald Trump has been dealing with constant allegations that Russia has influenced his administration. While the president has defended his staff in public, a new video shows Trump and in heated argument with one of his top advisers.

Trump and Bannon

Not long after Donald Trump clinched the Republican nomination for president, changes were made at the top of the campaign. Paul Manafort was forced to step down as campaign manager after his alleged financial ties to Russia were exposed.

In his place was put Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway, who has since gone on to take on the role of Presidential Counsel. In addition to adding Conway, Trump brought on former Breitbart News CEO Steve Bannon to help advise his campaign. After the former host of "The Apprentice" defeated Hillary Clinton on Election Day, speculation grew about what role Bannon would play in the new administration. It didn't take long before the former head of Breitbart News was given the title of "Chief Strategist,"which instantly resulted in backlash from the media.

Despite the two having a solid relationship in public, not everything appears perfect behind the scenes. As first reported by CNN, and later Mediaite, on March 6, the two are not always seeing eye to eye.

CNN released a leaked video on Monday that showed Donald Trump and Steve Bannon engaging in a heated argument inside the oval office. CNN Washington Correspondent Ryan Nobles described the situation as "animated" and "heated" and having "a lot of expletives." "We’re told the president accused his staff of fumbling the situation with Sessions," Nobbles said of the exchange that took place on Friday.

Also involved were First Daughter Ivanka Trump, and her husband, Jarred Kushner. It was at this point where Trump angrily exited the White House and made his way to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida for the remainder of the weekend.

Trump trouble

With obvious tensions increasing in the White House, Donald Trump took to his Twitter account on more than one occasion over the weekend.

In addition to calling for separate investigations into Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Trump went on to accuse Barack Obama of wiretapping his offices at Trump Tower. As of press time, Obama has denied the allegation in a statement on Saturday, with Trump and his team still not providing any credible evidence to back up their side of the story.
