Stephen Bannon, President Donald Trump’s chief strategist, is leaving the White House and his last day is Friday, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said. Sanders said Bannon and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly “mutually agreed” that it would be Bannon’s last day. The statement comes after the New York Times reported Trump had told senior aides he is removing Bannon. Earlier Friday, Axios reported a decision on Bannon was imminent and that officials expected him to be fired. Bannon’s departure comes in the wake of Trump’s controversial comments on the violence in Charlottesville.
