The latest shakeup in the Trump administration happened Friday, with the announced departure of White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, who reportedly turned in his two-week notice on August 7.
“The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over. We still have a huge movement, and we will make something of this Trump presidency. But that presidency is over. It’ll be something else. And there’ll be all kinds of fights, and there’ll be good days and bad days, but that presidency is over,” Bannon told the Weekly Standard Friday, soon after he confirmed his departure from the Trump administration.
Later Friday evening, Breitbart announced that Bannon had returned to his old post as Breitbart’s executive chairman, and had chaired the company’s evening editorial meeting that evening. Larry Solov, Breitbart News CEO and President, said, “Breitbart’s pace of global expansion will only accelerate with Steve back. The sky’s the limit.”
“The populist-nationalist movement got a lot stronger today,” said Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow. “Breitbart gained an executive chairman with his finger on the pulse of the Trump agenda.”
How do you feel about Bannon leaving the White House? Have conservatives just lost an important voice in the Trump administration? Or is Trump better off without him?
