Steve Bannon is officially gone! The White House chief strategist has resigned effective August 14th. His resignation comes exactly one year after he joined the Trump campaign.
Trump on Bannon
Just this past Tuesday Trump was singing his praises about Bannon that he was a “good man” and “not a racist.” “I like Mr. Bannon. He’s a friend of mine. but Mr. Bannon came on very late. You know that. I went through 17 senators, governors, and I won all the primaries. Mr. Bannon came on very much later than that, but we’ll see what happens with Mr. Bannon,” Trump stated.
Bannon has clashed with pretty much every top White House official including Jared Kushner, Lt. General H.R. McMaster, and General John Kelly. When McMaster was hired he said one of his first moves would be to remove Bannon from his position. Bannon’s appointment as the chief political strategist was very controversial, and now he’s outta here. Before his tenure at the White House, Bannon was the CEO of Breitbart News. So just by that, we know what kind of person he is. Just moments ago, Trump said he was getting rid of Bannon according to the New York Times. So, in Trump’s eyes, he resigned. In our eyes, Trump fired him. With the turnaround in the White House recently, that’s only a sure-fire sign that Trump needs to be impeached and he needs to get out NOW.
