Donald Trump's love-hate relationship with The New York Times just got even more interesting.

- Trump was not fully briefed on details of the executive order he signed giving Bannon a seat on the National Security Council.

And Ronald Klain, aide to former Vice President Joe Biden, tweeted: "Remember the memes about VP Biden leaving a stumper for Trump?"

And people are questioning his decisions to give his top political advisor, Stephen Bannon, a formal active role in the National Security Council, a forum dedicated to protecting the nation from foreign threats.

"You don't want someone who is a political individual participating in National Security Council proceedings and that was the practice of both Obama and Bush", McCain added.

Theresa May's Brexit plans face a new legal challenge in Britain's High Court Friday, the Guardian reported . In January May effectively left no doubt as to her government's intentions.

President Donald Trump again attacked the New York Times, this time for a devastating report that shed light on his administration's bumbling inner workings.

Trump's executive order temporarily suspending refugee immigration into the country, indefinitely stopping Syrian refugees at the border and temporarily barring nationals of seven predominantly Muslim countries has been at the center of back-and-forth legal challenges.

The Times does not say directly that Trump's anger is directed at Bannon, only that it stems from his not being "fully briefed".

However, he has been accused of "running a cabal, nearly like a shadow national security council", by one intelligence official, who told the Foreign Policy website that Bannon was ensuring there was no paper trail or documentation of what was being discussed at prominent meetings in the White House. "Some FAKE NEWS media, in order to marginalize, lies!" "We're going to hold this administration accountable moving forward", Shah said.

Cloistered in the White House, he now has little access to his fans and supporters - an important source of feedback and validation - and feels increasingly pinched by the pressures of the job and the constant presence of protests, one of the reasons he was forced to scrap a planned trip to Milwaukee last week.
