Steve Bannon is a big reason Trump is sitting in the White House.
When he and Kellyanne Conway joined the team, things really started taking off.
However, if you believe the recent reports, things seem to be souring between Trump and Bannon.
It looks like he could possibly be on the way out…
From Washington Examiner:
White House chief strategist Steve Bannon’s job may be on the chopping block as President Trump suspects he is behind damaging leaks about West Wing staffers, according to a new report Saturday.
Bannon’s West Wing colleagues believe he’s behind leaks about national security adviser H.R. McMaster, who has been the target of far-right attacks, Axios reported.
To be fair, we have seen reports like this for awhile and you really can’t believe anything you hear from the DC media.
Scaramucci talked about the Bannon situation this morning…
From ABC News:
In his first television interview since his short-lived tenure in the White House, former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci spoke out against Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, saying the president “knows what he’s going to do with” him.
Speaking with ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos this morning, Scaramucci criticized the influence of the website Breitbart and Steve Bannon, who was the executive chairman of Breitbart before joining the Trump campaign and later the administration, saying that there’s “this sort of ‘Bannon-bart’ influence” in the White House that he thinks “is a snag on the president.”
Bannon is a good guy. But, if he leaked. Then he has to go. Pretty simple.
That being said, there’s no proof he leaked anything at this point.
