Steve Bannon Fired By Trump

President Trump has reportedly fired White House strategist Steve Bannon.

The New York Times said Trump had decided to jettison the controversial top White House strategist.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that Friday would be Bannon’s last day.

Bannon is considered a champion of the far right wing and had feuded with Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, who is viewed by some as a more moderate figure.

The former Breitbart News supremo has told pals he might return to the right wing media outlet if he was dumped from the White House.
