Is Steve Bannon's White House career dead?

by Abel Hampton April 15, 2017, 5:38

Bannon, President Trump's grenade-lobbing pugilist of a chief strategist, has a fitting nickname for his West Wing office: "the war room".

A week ago Bannon was also axed from Trump's national security council.

I guess chief strategist is more of a ceremonial title at this point.

When asked about the feud, Trump said: "Steve is a good guy, but I told them to straighten it out or I will".

President Donald Trump has declared: "I am my own strategist".

As NPR's Domenico Montanaro noted when President Trump "pivoted" during his joint address to Congress, only to accuse President Obama of wiretapping him days later, Trump himself has explained that while he could "be the most presidential candidate in history, other than honest Abe Lincoln", he feels compelled to respond whenever he feels threatened or ignored.

It would be, in short, the "pivot" that so many conservatives in Washington have clamored for and hopefully anticipated since it became clear Trump would be the GOP nominee. In an interview with the New York Post's Michael Goodwin, Trump seems to push away Bannon.

Reports of infighting among senior staff inside the Trump White House has raised the prospect of a staff shake-up, though sources have said no decisions appear imminent.

Bannon is seen as increasingly isolated within the White House, particularly after the health care debacle.

In the minds of many Bannon allies, Cohn has worked his way closer to Trump at Bannon's expense. "He's supported me and the Homeland Security in stepping up our enforcement at the border 100% and we're carrying out his agenda and I think that's shared throughout the White House", Sessions said.

A staunch early Trump supporter, Flynn is a retired United States Army lieutenant general and was the former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. He has reportedly taken to mocking media coverage of the breadth of Kushner's vast portfolio; but he has also taken to evicting Bannon from some meetings, telling him that his presence is not required.

"The things they want us to do are so horrifying - they want to do harboring cases of three or more people", said the prosecutor.

Kushner is family and he's not going anywhere, says Ned Ryun, founder of the conservative group American Majority.

In the end, whoever is advising in the White House, "this will be a Trump presidency", says former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, an informal Trump adviser. "He's not going anywhere", But he adds, "Bannon should not go anywhere either because of what he represents to the voter". During their phone call, Xi told Trump that China is willing to continue working with the USA on denuclearization. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article.
