Steve Bannon leaves as senior Trump’s senior strategic adviser
Steve Bannon, a strong figure alongside Donald Trump as his senior strategic adviser, announced in a joint statement with Chief of Staff John Kelly that Friday would be his last day at the White House.
“We are grateful for his service and wish him the best,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters. The details leading up to his departure are still a matter of wide speculation. . Bannon, a right-wing conservative, was known to be a strong influence on the president’s thinking, but they also differed on some key foreign policy issues, such as China. He was more odds with other members of the White House team, especially, it was said, with Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner.
