Steve Bannon Could Be Fired In Ongoing White House Reshuffle

Key West Wing colleagues believe Bannon is an instigator of leaks targeting National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster. On Thursday, Trump backed McMaster as “our friend”.

The cover showed Bannon sharing equal billing with Trump.

“It was going to be very hard for me to stay in the job, given the fact the Gen. Kelly took over and so I respect Gen. Kelly”, he added to White House chief of staff John Kelly.

A Wall Street Journal editorial on Tuesday urged the Trump administration and Kelly to not question McMaster’s loyalty and start questioning Bannon’s.

President Donald Trump revealed the name he calls his new chief of staff John Kelly, The Hill reported Friday.

Also in the report, sources say Trump has been fed-up with what he views as self-promotion by Bannon.

Kelly faces a White House that’s been plagued by leaks and controversies. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders has previously indicated that the President enjoys nurturing a competitive dynamic within his staff, and Trump himself has stated that he is not so concerned by “little inner White House leaks” as they demonstrate his aides are “all fighting for love” from him.

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci on Sunday said he thinks what happens with his White House role was “sort of meant to happen”. Conservative journalist Mike Cernovich threatened to release a “motherlode” of negative reports about liberal figures within the administration in April, during fears that Bannon would be imminently fired.
