Over the last 24 hours, several news outlets have reported that major changes are getting ready to take place inside the White House. Big names like Steve Bannon and Reince Priebus could soon see their last days in the administration, but the White House is pushing back at the reports.

Trump denial

Ever since Donald Trump was elected president last November following a shocking upset win over Hillary Clinton, his administration has been surrounded by non-stop controversy. Whether it's his questionable executive orders, policy proposals, or rhetoric, the former host of "The Apprentice" has received so much backlash that his poll numbers have dropped down to just a 34 percent approval rating.

Due to the decline in popularity, Trump has reportedly been deflecting blame onto some of his top advisers. After his health care plan failed to gain support in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives, Trump reportedly put much of the blame on Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, who he believed put too much pressure on House Speaker Paul Ryan to get the job done. This isn't the first time Trump has allegedly been at odds with Priebus, which could soon lead to the chief of staff being on the outs in the White House, In addition, a report in Axios, and later the New York Daily News, noted that Chief Strategist Steve Bannon could also leave his position, especially after the former Breitbart News CEO was removed from his role on the National Security Counsel.

Despite several reports doubling down on the news, including the Wall Street Journal, The Hill reported on April 7 that the administration is not pleased with what has leaked out.

A spokesperson for the White House is pushing back at the aforementioned reports that big changes could soon be made by Donald Trump.

"Once again this is a completely false story driven by people who want to distract from the success taking place in this administration," Lindsay Walters said on Friday. Walters continued to downplay the reports by highlighting that Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, was finally confirmed in the Senate after Republicans used the nuclear option to force confirmation.

"The only thing we are shaking up is the way Washington operates as we push the president’s aggressive agenda forward," she added.

A White House official then went on to state that Donald Trump was "not making any staff changes," while claiming "our team is focused on the President’s agenda not false palace intrigue stories." As of press time, the original reports are standing by their stories despite the denial from Trump and his White House staff.

Moving forward

As of press time, Donald Trump is facing one of the most difficult periods of his early days as president.

In addition to the rumors of his top advisers possibly being replaced, the president is also just one day removed from ordering missile strikes against Syria in retaliation of President Bashar al-Assad chemical attack on his own people earlier this week.
