Top Trump Adviser Steve Bannon Out From White House

Steve Bannon, a senior adviser to the president who was largely credited with shaping the strategy that got Donald Trump to the White House, is out from his role as the president’s chief strategist. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, said Bannon and Chief of Staff John Kelly agreed Friday would be his last day.

“We are grateful for his service and wish him the best,” Sanders said in a statement.

The details of Bannon’s departure remain unclear. The New York Times reported Trump had decided to remove Bannon, but also that a source close to Bannon said the adviser had submitted his resignation on Aug. 7 to be effective Aug. 14. MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle also tweeted Bannon is “out.”

CNN’s Jim Acosta and Axios’ Jonathan Swan both tweeted Bannon had been fired.

Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman tweeted that Bannon is expected to return to Breitbart News.

Bannon’s departure comes amid a recent wave of White House staffing shakeups and turmoil. According to Axios, Trump believed that Bannon was behind recent leaks to the press. The president has made stopping leaks a top priority.

Ousted White House chief strategist Steve Bannon on Friday returned to Breitbart News as executive chairman, the conservative news site announced.

"The populist-nationalist movement got a lot stronger today," said Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow. "Breitbart gained an executive chairman with his finger on the pulse of the Trump agenda."

Bannon, who previously ran the populist news site before joining President Donald Trump’s campaign, left his West Wing post earlier on Friday.
