Stephen Bannon Leaves Trump Team. Breitbart Declares "War" On White House

Stephen Bannon, US President Donald Trump’s chief strategist, is leaving his post, spokeswoman for the White House, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, announced on Friday.

“White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Steve Bannon have mutually agreed today would be Steve’s last day,” Sanders said in a statement. “We are grateful for his service and wish him the best.”

Earlier on Friday, reports appeared that Trump had told senior aides that he had decided to remove his chief strategist.

Meanwhile, other reports suggest that Bannon insisted that the parting of ways was his idea. According to this version, Bannon had submitted his resignation to the president on August 7. It was set to be announced at the start of this week, but this was delayed after the violence in Charlottesville.

Joel Pollak, a Breitbart Editor, has already reacted to the news, twitting “#WAR”. It looks the most popular American media outlet “Breitbart News” may have no more will to support the administration.

    So Trump inner circle and co is 100 percent now under pro interventionist and neo cons people . As people say there is no difference when you vote for American president whether Hillary or Trump , at least in foreign policy

    • testera

      It would take a really naive person to think that any president could make a difference, although Obama did manage to fool a lot of people and get Nobel prize for promises.

    • outer_rl

      It’s just Trump himself standing in the way of the neo-cons gaining absolute power. Well, that’s better than nothing, but only just.

  • FlorianGeyer

    We are witnessing the melt down of the US Banana Republic.
    The dangerous thing though is that war has always been the way to unite a nation.
    If that were to happen I hope the US loses badly.

    • Bru

      quite insightful

  • Blucross

    D.Trump and most of his supporters are tough. And If it don’t kill us it serves to make us tougher.

    • testera

      Trump was never more than an incompetent clown, and still was a better choice than the Clintons. Nothing there for a common man to support.

      • bcbingram

        I was originally a bernie guy, I still support universal healthcare and I am willing to pay any extra tax to have it.

    • FlorianGeyer

      I hope so for your sake as the Neo-Con Fema Camps (Gulags) are waiting for prisoners.

  • piktor

    Trump should know that nobody can stand by himself alone in such a political position. He removed by himself all his friends and all the people who fought for him. This is suicidal. Next is him.

    • Bru

      fully agreed, he is going to be replaced by Spence.

      • Irebukeu

        Pence might have to declare him unfit and invoke section 4 of the 25th amendment.

    • Mattias Dahlström

      Trump does not seem to have the ability to gain and keep people with loyalty around him, people that will stand with him in combat.

      • Ma_Laoshi

        I think the words you’re looking for, and which Trump lacks, are “leadership qualities”.

    • Bill Rood

      The die was cast when Trump asked for Flynn’s resignation. Flynn wasn’t perfect. He was too hostile to Iran, but at least he had long been vocally against arming Syrian rebels.

  • Jesus

    At first I thought Bannon would be a strong Trump supporter, however, it seems he had his own agenda and might have been the cause of various leaks. I see Trump’s West Wing becoming a revolving door, until he will find the right people to support his agenda. Mc Master, Gary Cohn and all other pro neocon and Wall Street crowd are succeptible for similar treatment.

    • Bru

      I checked Breitbard news and they clarify that they are actually going into war FOR Trump .

      • Jesus

        Bannon was for the original Trump platform, whereby you provide economic opportunities across the board, curtail illegal immigration, provide tax cuts…etc, people would be happy and enable republicans to have control of the executive and legislative branch for the next 30-50 years.
        After Trump was elected, he ended up being surrounded by people that did not share that vision, and Brannon was in direct conflict with Trump’s West Wing, and Trumps daughter and son in law.
        I believe Trump still retains his original vision, he needs to recycle the people around him and make sure he has control of the armed forces.

  • Serious

    USA can’t be saved.

    • FlorianGeyer

      That’s probably for the best. Most of the world, even her vassals are sick of the US and her ignorant and tacky ways.

      • Blucross

        Thats what the media tells you, but I notice, for the majority of humans of our world moving to America is something worth struggling for…

        • FlorianGeyer

          There we must respectfully disagree .

          • bcbingram

            and you disagree with America is worth struggling for or that many people want to move here ?
            You might notice I changed my profile pic, how can you deny I am GOD now……

          • FlorianGeyer

            Frankly in its current state America is not worth ‘struggling for’ in my opinion.
            God has more hair by the way. I know him personally :)

    • Blucross

      hahgahahahahahh, in your dreams you unpatriotic piece of dog dirt.

  • Marcello Gusberti

    Certainly the ones that have voted for trump, regardless what the original motivation was found themselves getting the right contrary of what the wanted,: the ones asking law and order get BLM and Antifa taking the streets, the ones that asked for a new Right side Movement get to be taken over by KKK and neonazi, conservative voters of South see confederate statues removed, something than in the eight years of Obama were just unthinkable, the ones that wanted the enn of military interventionism get the worst possible relation with Russia and the unilateral ending of the nuclear pact with Iran and the WH in the hands of hawkish generals, the blue belt ones that dreamed about a relaunch of american industries see the producers leaving Trump Train en masse

    • Blucross

      ahhh about 18% true.

  • Mattias Dahlström
  • SOF

    Rumors from certain lesser-known corners of alt-media speculate Trump will resign next month in September or October. If I were him right now I would be tired of my job and the constantly being hamstrung by the Deep State.

    • Gary Sellars

      What BS…. an ego-driven authoritarian like Trump is not going to resign….. just absurd.

      • Blucross

        agreed

  • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

    Trump is a very difficult man to work for and with , he is a very stubborn opinionated bull headed mule and very much a harm to himself than anyone or anything else.

    • Blucross

      Agreed 85%, but only a stubborn bull headed guy like that could have stood up to the Left wings Evil Empire (which included almost complete media campaign of lies and half truths )

  • Floyd Hazzard

    I don’t care what Paul Craig writes. He’s a man I read a lot and respects but the whole Trump administration needs to go. I have never seen such chaos in an administration in all my life. Anyone who cannot see it must be wearing wooden specs.

    • Blucross

      I understand, but I don’t agree that much.

  • King_GeorgXIII

    He declared war for Trump, please stop watching Fake News! He has its own media outlet.

    Stephen Bannon was the real Man we call voted for, Trump was the public relations figure.
    It was Bannon’s policies we wanted.
    Now Zionist-banksters have taken full control over Trump.
    Time to Democratically bring down the US government to its knees and then pull the rug out from under it.
    Let America break into two countries.
    The Liberal UK-Socialist Empire like California.
    And then the real Republic of America.
    Let everyone choose their side and go there separate ways peaceably.

      Fuc you, I live in Calif and I ain’t movin, I am going to continue to try to change minds until we become sane.

      • Real Anti-Racist Action

        Once we have a Nation again, then we can work to buy back all of our lands.
        As Socialist lefties always end up starving themselves then get desperate to sell their lands for food.

  • Blucross

    More Clickbait headlines attempting to set the narrative.
    IF you must watch TV, note who supports the lying media then you and your friends can stop buying their products and services. Hit them where it hurts.

  • Blucross

    Doug Mills, O you pathetic twit, selling your honesty for a few silvers. You probably consider yourself a ‘writer’, take a look in the mirror of your used to be courage, leave off this ‘hack hat’ rejoin us and let the light of courage and 100% honesty shine from your eyes.
