Bannon fired from National Security Council role in shakeup


bannon the defacto president
President Donald Trump reorganized his National Security Council on Wednesday, removing his chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, and downgrading the role of his Homeland Security Adviser, Tom Bossert, according to a person familiar with the decision and a regulatory filing.

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster was given responsibility for setting the agenda for meetings of the NSC or the Homeland Security Council, and was authorized to delegate that authority to Bossert, at his discretion, according to the filing.

Under the move, the national intelligence director, Dan Coats, and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Marine Corps General Joseph Dunford, are again “regular attendees” of the NSC’s principals committee.

Bannon, the former executive chairman of Breitbart News, was elevated to the National Security Council’s principals committee at the beginning of Trump’s presidency. The move drew criticism from some members of Congress and Washington’s foreign policy establishment.

Trump’s move comes as new polling showing that Bannon is even less popular than the president , who is viewed unfavorably by more Americans than any other president at this point in his term.

The Quinnipiac poll showed that just 11 percent of those surveyed having a favorable opinion and 45 percent having an unfavorable one — a 4-to-1 negative.

Bannon is a self-styled nationalist who was one of the brains behind Trump’s “America First” policy.

But his pugnacious style irritated many in Congress as well as his own colleagues in the administration.

  1. But Bannon is supposed to be the real president
    What happened ?
    Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law who cannot be fired is reportedly behind the move .
    He wants Bannon’s job too!
    He may soon fire Trump too… He wants to run the whole country on his own and he can do it !
    Ask Elizabeth Spiers she will tell you !!!

      I honestly would rather have Kushner running everything at the WH
      The kid is not an idiot like his father-in-law or those who surround him
      I don’t agree with everything he believes in but I’m sure he can do much better than Trump and even loser Hilary

      1. Don’t be an idiot. Kushner is a real estate developer in his mid 30s.

            He comes from a respectable family. “Charles Kushner (born May 16, 1954) is an American real estate developer and convicted felon. He founded Kushner Companies in 1985. In 2005, he was convicted of illegal campaign contributions, tax evasion, and witness tampering, and served time in federal prison. After his release, he resumed his career in real estate. He is the father of Jared Kushner, husband of Ivanka Trump and son-in-law and senior advisor to President of the United States Donald Trump.” Wikipedia

          3. Aside from the fact that nothing is ran from/at the White House, that’s the guy Mekenseh sees fit to run everything. A bozo who got in Harvard thanks to his family’s $2.5M donation, who has zero experience in politics. But who cares; as long as he appears less dumb than his father-in-law.
