With news escalating regarding the Charlottesville rally and its aftermath and fallout, the question of Chief Strategist Steve Bannon’s role in President Trump’s White House is raising concerns.
The left call him a racist, moderates find him too radical, and now some on the right believe he’s too distracting. But many supporters and Trump’s loyal base believe he is exactly who Trump needs to further succeed in his agenda to make America great again. Many cite the fact that Bannon was a huge help in the campaign.
Earlier this week, in a report from Axios, unnamed sources in the West Wing claimed that senior-level staff in the White House believe Bannon is behind the leaks targeting Trump’s national security adviser, Gen. H.R. McMaster. According to Axios, “Key West Wing colleagues believe Bannon is an instigator of leaks targeting National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster. The stories have been driven by Breitbart News, where Bannon was executive chairman before joining Trump’s presidential campaign as chief executive in August.”
Tensions between McMaster and Bannon are reportedly strained, as with others who are not fond of Bannon.
In the past few days, Fox News’ CEO Rupert Murdoch has reportedly advised Trump to fire the former Breitbart executive. Javier Palomarez, president and CEO of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, also says Bannon should go.
However, others, such as our very own DML, believe it’d be the wrong move to get rid of Bannon.
So, we ask you: Should Trump fire Bannon?
