  • Steve Bannon Is Out as White House Chief Strategist

Bannon predicted that Trump would now be moderated by the Republicans.

President Donald Trump has fired Stephen Bannon as his chief strategist in the latest high-level White House shake-up, removing a powerful and controversial figure known for far-right political views.

"I want to thank Steve Bannon for his service", Trump wrote this morning. It has been great!

One bar offered a round of free drinks any time Trump tweeted during the former FBI Director James Comey's Senate testimony in June.

White House strategist Steve Bannon left his post on Friday.

Many credit Bannon with helping to put Donald Trump in the White House and many saw him as the president's connection to his base of most-committed supporters.




Mr. Bannon returned Friday to Breitbart News, the conservative news organization that he led prior to joining the Trump campaign a year ago.

The White House announced Bannon and White House chief of staff John Kelly mutually agreed that Bannon's last day would be Friday.

Vice President Mike Pence soon echoed the president, retweeting Trump just an hour later.

Breitbart confirmed the "populist hero" is returning to the news outlet where he will resume his executive chairman duties. But amid the fallout from Trump's controversial response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend and earlier this week, Bannon's August 14 resignation date came and went as the president considered Bannon's future, sources said. I've got my hands back on my weapons.

News of Bannon weighing establishing a network that leans more conservative than Fox News comes two months after it was reported that Roger Ailes, Fox News' deceased ex-CEO, wanted the same thing. "And rev it up we will do". "We are grateful for his service and wish him the best", the White House said in a statement on Friday.

Trump, who last week also condemned white supremacism and neo Nazism, said Bannon was not a "racism", and that he didn't help him craft his responses to the deadly Charlottesville protests.
