    Steve Bannon out at the White House

    Steve Bannon out at the White House, source says

    Published August 18, 2017 Fox News

    Steve Bannon, the chief strategist to President Trump, is expected to leave the White House, a source tells Fox News.

    The New York Times also reported Friday that Trump has told aides he's decided to remove Bannon, though it's unclear when that might happen.


    The populist Bannon formally joined Trump’s team a year ago, when the former head of Breitbart News was tapped as chief executive of the campaign. After Trump won the presidential race, Bannon was appointed to a senior adviser role at the same time Reince Priebus was named chief of staff.


    The Drudge Report first reported Bannon’s exit, saying he could return to Breitbart. The New York Times then reported Trump has decided to boot Bannon.


    Bannon had become increasingly isolated inside the White House following the ascension of John Kelly as chief of staff, sources inside the White House and outside advisers recently told Fox News.


    Earlier this week, he gave a candid interview to a liberal magazine where he slammed some of his adversaries inside the administration.

    Bannon has long been a target of mainstream Republican ire – and until now had survived even as top Trump lieutenants like Sean Spicer and Priebus have resigned.

    Trump briefly addressed the speculation about Bannon's future during a wide-ranging Q&A with reporters at Trump Tower on Tuesday afternoon.


    “I like Mr. Bannon, he’s a friend of mine,” Trump said, while downplaying his impact in the 2016 campaign. “I like him. He’s a good man. He’s not a racist … but we’ll see what happens with Mr. Bannon.”

    Chief Strategist Steve Bannon Out at White House: ‘Get Ready for Bannon the Barbarian’

    16

    by Adam Shaw Aug 18, 2017


    White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon — the former Breitbart News executive chairman who helped guide then-candidate Donald Trump’s flagging presidential campaign to a historic victory — is on his way out of the White House, with a source close to Bannon telling Axios: “Get ready for Bannon the barbarian.”

    Axios first reported that Bannon, who was brought on to the campaign in August to replace Paul Manafort as campaign chairman, was expected to depart from the White House imminently.


    Soon after, the Drudge Report issued a siren on the site’s front page, declaring: “Bannon Out at White House” adding that he was “moving on after an impressive run.”


    Meanwhile, the New York Times also reported that President Trump had decided to remove Bannon, but Trump and senior White House officials were debating “when and how to dismiss” Bannon.


    The
    Times reported that a person close to Bannon insisted that a departure was Bannon’s idea and that a resignation had been submitted on August 7 — but the protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, had delayed his departure.


    The White House later partly confirmed the reports: “White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Steve Bannon have mutually agreed today would be Steve’s last day. We are grateful for his service and wish him the best,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. No further details were immediately available.


    Bannon was widely reported to have feuded with a number of the globalists White House officials within Trump’s administration, as he sought to get Trump to stick to the campaign promises that had helped carry him to his win in November.


    The Times reported that Bannon had clashed with members of Trump’s family. Axios reported that Bannon was suspected of leaking about colleagues and that Trump “resents the publicity Bannon has been getting as mastermind of the campaign.”


    However, while it was unclear what Bannon’s next move would be, a source close to Bannon told Axios: “Get ready for Bannon the barbarian.”

    A Reminder:

    MAY 3, 2017, 2:31 P.M.

    Here are Steve Bannon's white-board goals, transcribed and annotated



    Colleen Shalby

    When Rabbi Shmuley Boteach tweeted images from the White House Tuesday, he gave the world a behind-the-scenes glimpse at what appears to be Steve Bannon's to-do list.


    Displayed on a large white board in a room believed to be Bannon's office — though the White House has not confirmed that — are outlines on immigration, national defense, Obamacare, tax reform and infrastructure with no less than 38 items. Several under the heading "Pledges on immigration" include a checkmark. Whether that symbolizes that a task was completed, remains in progress or something else is unclear.


    Nothing mentioned on the white board reveals anything the White House hasn't already discussed, so this likely isn't the same situation as November, when a photo of Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach accidentally revealed the deportation planshe shared with Trump.


    Nonetheless, it's worth taking a gander. Below is a list of the most interesting points that we could decipher. Many of them speak for themselves, as they've been ongoing topics of conversation. We've added annotations to some.



    Pledges on Immigration



    • Cancel all federal funding to sanctuary cities
    • Suspend immigration from terror-prone regions ✔️
      This proposal has been blocked by a federal court.
    • Implement new extreme immigration vetting techniques
    • Suspend Syrian Refugee Program ✔️
      This proposal has also been blocked by a federal court.
    • Create support program for victims of illegal immigrants
    • Expand and revitilize the popular 287g partners
      The 287g program allows state and local governments to enter a partnership with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
    • Issue detainers for all illegal immigrants who are … for any crime and they will be placed into ...removal proceedings ✔️
    • End “catch-and-release” ✔️
    • Hire 5,000 more Border Patrol agents ✔️
      The Trump administration has asked Congress to provide extra money for the hiring of 5,000 Border Patrol agents, but the amount they'll actually be able to hire this year remains uncertain.
    • Restore the Secure Communities Program ✔️
      Donald Trump signed an executive order in January that restored this George W. Bush-era deportation program.
    • Triple the number of ICE agents ✔️
    • Build the border wall and eventually make Mexico ...
      If we were to fill in the blank, we'd guess "pay for it."
    • Sunset our visa laws so that Congress is forced to periodically revise and revisit them
    • Finally complete biometric entry-exit tracking
      The plan to track the departure of foreign visitors was first introduced in 1996, but no administration has successfully implemented it.
    • Propose passage of Davis-Oliver bill
      The immigration bill, proposed by then Sen. Jeff Sessions in 2015, is named for two California police officers who were killed by an immigrant living in the U.S. illegally.
    • ...pass “Kate’s Law”
      "Kate's Law," also known as the Establishing Mandatory Minimums for Illegal Reentry Act of 2015, was proposed following the death of Kate Steinle, who was shot and killed in San Francisco by a Mexican immigrant living in the U.S. illegally.



    Pledges on Obamacare


    • Repeal and Replace Obamacare



    Pledges on Tax Reform


    • Create a 10% repatriation tax
      A possible clue into what Trump's tax reform plan entails.




    The biggest takeaway here is that whoever wrote these items has clear penmanship.

    If @realDonaldTrump didn't like the media giving Steve Bannon all credit, instead of firing him, he should've hired 10 more like him.

    Stephen Bannon resigned as White House Chief Strategist two weeks ago, ABC News confirms



    Updated 15 mins ago

    Steve Bannon has resigned from his role as White House chief strategist, ABC News has learned.

    A source close to Bannon told ABC News the resignation was effective on Aug. 14, exactly one year after he joined the Trump campaign. Trump had grown increasingly frustrated with Bannon, according to one senior White House official.

    Bannon has clashed with virtually every top official in the White House. Atop his list of in-house detractors are senior adviser Jared Kushner, national security adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster and the new chief of staff, Gen. John Kelly.

    RELATED: Notable firings and resignations under the Trump administration

    One of McMaster's first moves was to remove Bannon from his seat at the National Security Council, a move that angered Bannon. And his appointment as the council's chief political strategist was hugely controversial when it was first announced via executive order at the start of the administration.

    Over the weekend, McMaster refused to say whether he would continue to work with Bannon.

    The former executive chairman of Breitbart News joined the Trump campaign last August. He would become known as a fearless and critically influential adviser to the president.

    On Tuesday, the president told reporters at Trump Tower that Bannon 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," Trump said before adding, "but we'll see what happens with Mr. Bannon."

    Bannon is the latest high-profile aide to leave the White House. On July 21, press secretary Sean Spicer resigned, followed by Chief of Staff Reince Priebus. White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci was fired a few days later, serving just 11 days in that role.

    This is a breaking news story. Please check back for updates.

    With Steve Bannon Gone, Donald Trump Risks Being Arnold Schwarzenegger 2.0


    Joel Pollack

    August 18, 2017

    President Donald Trump’s decision to part ways with Steve Bannon can be understood as an effort to save his presidency after Charlottesville. It may turn out to be the beginning of the end for the Trump administration, the moment Donald Trump became Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    Like Trump, Schwarzenegger ran for high office as a celebrity outsider, promising to reform a corrupt, wasteful and lethargic political system, reaching across party lines.


    When he took office in 2003 as Governor of California, “The Terminator” carried the hopes of conservatives in the Golden State, who saw him as a vehicle for their ideas, even if he was not a doctrinaire conservative himself. The faltering California Republican Party looked to Schwarzenegger to reverse its long-term decline, and Republicans elsewhere saw his success as a model from which they could learn as they courted moderate, swing-state voters.


    But after struggling with intense media criticism, and after losing a key referendum on reforms to state government, Schwarzenegger gave up on his agenda, and abandoned the political base that had brought him into office. He re-invented himself as a liberal, embracing policies such as California’s controversial cap-and-trade program, which had zero effect on climate change but has chased businesses, jobs, and middle-class families out of the state.


    Politically, Schwarzenegger’s gambit was a success. He won re-election in 2006. But his second term was a disaster. When he left office in 2010, the state was in a financial shambles and the California Republican Party had begun a decline from which it still has not recovered.


    Bannon was not just Trump’s master strategist, the man who turned a failing campaign around in August 2016 and led one of the most remarkable come-from-behind victories in political history. He was also the conservative spine of the administration. His infamous whiteboard in the West Wing listed the promises Trump had made to the voters, and he was determined to check as many of them off as possible. Steve Bannon personified the Trump agenda.




    With Bannon gone, there is no guarantee that Trump will stick to the plan. That is why — too late, in retrospect — conservative leaders wrote to the president Friday to advise him that Bannon and campaign manager-turned-counselor Kellyanne Conway were too valuable to lose. Bannon had delivered for the movement, reportedly convincing President Trump to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accords, and to visit Israel on his first trip abroad.


    Bannon was also probably the only person who could deliver honest advice and criticism to the president, because he did not need the job. He is a self-made man, and not a Washington climber. Thus it was that Bannon reportedly told Trump that firing former FBI director James Comey would be more trouble than it was worth. He was right.


    Trump voters have been patient, but they will soon know if Donald Trump is really Arnold Schwarzenegger 2.0.
