In an administration where proximity often equates to power, Kushner was one of the USA officials sitting closest to Trump on Thursday as the president dined with Xi.
National security experts, though, are wondering if McMaster can keep his clout, considering pushbacks from Bannon, Kushner, and other West Wing insiders.
She was one of only a few senior aides not present at this week's summit with the Chinese president at Trump's Florida estate. Bannon was fed up with the incoming he was taking - and so were his allies, inside and outside the White House.
Counselor to the President Steve Bannon, left, talks with White House senior advisers Jared Kushner in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, Friday, Feb. 3, 2017.

As for the former Breitbart executive, if he is fired, just blame Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, for the inside job. He's channeled the populist and nationalist sentiment that propelled Trump's campaign, and his placement on the NSC committee drew criticism from some members of Congress and Washington's foreign policy establishment, who said it risked politicizing the security advice provided to the president. At its core are Mr. Bannon, the edgy, nationalist bomb-thrower suddenly in the seat of power, and Mr. Kushner, the polished, boyish-looking scion of New Jersey and NY real estate.
Trump is apparently considering a "major shake-up of his senior White House team" amid growing frustrations with infighting, and "the weight of the president's frustrations appeared to be falling on" Bannon, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday. Earlier in the week, there were numerous reports that Bannon was this close to leaving.
But it's clear his position in the White House is in jeopardy.
Chief of Staff Reince Priebus told the two to smooth out their differences, reports indicate.
Trump removed Bannon from the National Security Council this week in what was seen as a victory for new national security adviser H.R. McMaster, a former Army lieutenant general who was working to exert control over the national security apparatus.
He has also played a key role in Mr Trump's foreign policy, including the United States relationship with China.
While Trump initially signed off on the shock-and-awe method by which the ban was first unveiled, he has since grown angry that Bannon did not craft the executive order in such a way that it could stand up in court, according to a person familiar with the president's thinking but not permitted to discuss private conversations by name. "Then you're basically having all the key operational players make a decision, and everyone is playing their roles".
Since the line "I don't know what it means to be complicit", Merriam-Webster reports that "complicit" after Trump's interview.
