Inside the Trump White House: From possible infighting to Trump's typical workday


The new administration may be facing big challenges such as the legal fight against President Trump's controversial immigration order, but they are also reportedly dealing with some mundane issues.

According to the New York Times, which cites inside sources, aides are still figuring out how to turn on cabinet room lights, and people are still getting accustomed to navigating unfamiliar space.

The report also says that the president typically turns in to the upstairs residence at around 6:30pm.

There, he is said to watch TV in a bathrobe, make calls, or explore his new environment, according to the Times.

A Washington Post report adds to the inside glimpse of the administration which included Trump allegedly telling his team last Monday that "Reince [Priebus] is in charge. He's the chief of staff. Everything has to go through him."

The declaration was reportedly intended to stop any "staff infighting."

And, despite allegations of conflict pitting Steve Bannon and top adviser Stephen Miller against Priebus, Priebus himself has denied that a rift exists.

The Times piece, meanwhile, says that Bannon "remains the president's dominant adviser, despite Mr. Trump's anger that he was not fully briefed on details of the executive order he signed giving his chief strategist a seat on the National Security Council."

However, Trump has since blasted the report, tweeting, "The failing @nytimes writes total fiction concerning me. They have gotten it wrong for two years, and now are making up stories & sources!"
