A senior aide to Mr. Trump was quoted by a US news outlet as saying “things are happening, but it’s very unclear the president’s willing to pull that trigger”.
“The tension, the exhaustion, the raw nerves have gotten much harder to disguise.”
It is understood that the changes could include the departure of Mr Bannon, the President’s chief strategist, and Mr. Priebus, the White House Chief of Staff.
Mr. Bannon, a controversial, right-wing newcomer to US politics who formerly edited the Breitbart news website, was instrumental in Mr. Trump’s election campaign.
But he was stripped of his position within the National Security Council (NSC) earlier this week in a move that startled Washington observers and appeared to cast doubt on his future in the administration.
