It was announced on Friday that Chief Strategist Steve Bannon was ousted from his position in the White House Friday morning. But a wide range of reports are stating Bannon handed in his resignation to the president on Aug 7.
From the New York Times:
President Trump has told senior aides that he has decided to remove Stephen K. Bannon, the embattled White House chief strategist who helped Mr. Trump win the 2016 election, according to two administration officials briefed on the discussion.
The president and senior White House officials were debating when and how to dismiss Mr. Bannon. The two administration officials cautioned that Mr. Trump is known to be averse to confrontation within his inner circle, and could decide to keep on Mr. Bannon for some time.
As of Friday morning, the two men were still discussing Mr. Bannon’s future, the officials said. A person close to Mr. Bannon insisted the parting of ways was his idea, and that he had submitted his resignation to the president on Aug. 7, to be announced at the start of this week, but it was delayed in the wake of the racial unrest in Charlottesville, Va.
Prior to the announcement that Bannon was officially set to leave on Friday, DML NEWS was in the process of reporting on Bannon’s most recent comments, which were sent via email to the Washington Post.
Here is the report, followed my remarks from the CEO of DML NEWS, Dennis Michael Lynch :
White House Strategist Steve Bannon wrote an email to The Washington Post, letting the leftist news outlet know that by focusing all of their political energy on racial wars, it’s apparent they have no idea what inspired President Donald J Trump’s supporters to vote for him.
“This past election, the Democrats used every personal attack, including charges of racism, against President Trump. He then won a landslide victory on a straightforward platform of economic nationalism,” Bannon wrote in an email to The Washington Post. “As long as the Democrats fail to understand this, they will continue to lose. But leftist elites do not value history, so why would they learn from history?”
The remarks sent to the Washington Post come on the heels of another interview Bannon had with a left-leaning news outlet.
Days ago, in an interview with The American Prospect, Bannon also gave his honest assessment of the Democrat agenda.
“The Democrats, the longer they talk about identity politics, I got ’em. I want them to talk about racism every day,” he said. “If the left is focused on race and identity, and we go with economic nationalism, we can crush the Democrats.”
For the past few weeks, media outlets have speculated that President Trump may fire his chief strategist.
In a supposedly off-the-record conversation published Wednesday by liberal-leaning American Prospect, Bannon contradicted the president’s position on North Korea and bad-mouthed his colleagues in the administration.
In a letter to the president, DML asked him not to remove Bannon from office for he is the one conservative the liberal media wants gone the most.
Bannon’s critics have been hell-bent on seeking his ouster from the White House because of his links to Breitbart News, his feuding with other White House aides and a suspicion that he is the source of leaks about internal chaos inside the West Wing.
“Firing Steve Bannon is the first step — and a needed step to begin the process of healing the bad feelings this administration has engendered,” said Javier Palomarez, president and CEO of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and he’s not the first person to suggest that Bannon is a problem.
According to some reports, a senior-level staff member says some in the White House believe Bannon is behind the leaks targeting Trump’s national security adviser, Gen. H.R. McMaster.
The rift between McMaster and Bannon is apparently rooted in conflicting ideology. As McMaster set about purging the National Security Council (NSC) of long-time Trump loyalists and kept holdovers from the Obama administration, Bannon and other White House members became concerned. As the two men continue to clash, sources say tensions are building between conservative Trump loyalists and McMaster.
In the wake of the announcement about Steve Bannon Friday, DML said:
“I knew this was coming, but I was hoping to be wrong. But when it comes to Trump, I am always correct but he is so easy to read. I support the president, but he is giving into the elites — inch by inch the elite groups who never wanted him in the White House to begin with are determined to make this a conventional presidency. I don’t think this will result in supporters giving up on the president, but it does turn the tables some. Whereas Trump supporters have always give him the benefit of the doubt, they will now hold him accountable for everything he fails to deliver on.” He continued, “Bannon handing in his resignation on Aug 7 is probably true. For him to give the interviews he did at the end is a tell that he knew he was leaving. I assume he resigned on Aug 7 because he felt the White House was no longer a place where he could work as a conservative voice. That alone scares the heck out of me. Trump better keep those jobs coming and border secured or he will lose just about everyone.”
