After Donald Trump shocked the world and defeated Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton to become the 45th President of the United States last November, he quickly brought Steve Bannon on board as his new chief strategist. While Bannon has long been seen as Trump's right-hand man, his days in the White House could soon becoming to an end.

Reid on Bannon

It was just last August when the entire makeup of the Donald Trump campaign changed. After it was revealed that Paul Manafort had financial ties to Russia, he lost his job as campaign manager and was replaced by veteran pollster Kellyanne Conway.

Along with Conway, Trump added Steven Bannon to his campaign team. The former head of Breitbart News brought with him a controversial reputation, one that critics label as pushing a "white nationalism" agenda, that borderlines, and often crosses, racist and prejudice propaganda. Despite this, Bannon's influence on the former host of "The Apprentice" was positive enough to lead him to victory on Election Night, and guaranteed him a promotion into the White House. Over the last two and a half months, Bannon's influence on Trump has been highlighted to the point that many mock the situation, often calling the former Breitbart News CEO the "real" president. However, this has not gone over well with Trump, who believes Bannon is hogging much of the spotlight, which has also led him to clash with the president's son-in-law Jared Kuschner.

Since the start of the month, cracks in the relationship between Trump and Bannon have become more than obvious, with the president going as far as removing his chief strategist from his role with the National Security Counsel. The move was one of the first major signs of dissension in the ranks, which has only escalated in recent weeks.

The latest round of reports note that Bannon could soon be let go from all of his duties, and is now "laying low" to avoid being fired, according to a Wednesday report by the Daily Beast. As seen on her official Twitter account on April 12, MSNBC host and vocal critical of the Trump administration, Joy Reid, was quick to give her thoughts.

In a series of tweets in regards the Steve Bannon and Donald Trump friendship collapse, Joy Reid documented her views on what is taking place. Reid posted an article from The Hill that quoted the president speaking about Bannon, downplaying his role in the White House by saying "I'm my own strategist." "Burrrrrnnnn," Reid wrote.

Joy Reid then retweeted a comment that claimed Steven Bannon hates Jared Kushner because he was adding "Goldmen Sachs globalists" to the administration who want to attack Syria.

Reid added her thoughts, noting, "Irony: Bannon worked at Goldman Sachs too. This is like a boy fight in the executive dining room." Not stopping there, Reid also addressed the idea that the former Breitbart News head was a "populist." "Because he frames his 'populism' as a game of racial-religious chicken, which is limbic brain-enticing to a particular audience," she wrote.

Reid doubles down

In a follow up tweet on the issue, Joy Reid continued her focus on Steve Bannon's alleged populism. "Great underlying point here: Bannon's only 'nationalism' is nativism (or Christian ethno-nationalism)," she tweeted, before pointing out, "On economics he's been Paul Ryan."
