Steve Bannon could be done, decision imminent


White House chief of staff John Kelly could axe Steve Bannon

A decision on Steve Bannon’s future is imminent with officials expecting him to be fired, according to a report from Axios that just landed.

“One senior White House said it seemed like Bannon was setting himself up to be a martyr – the nationalist hero fired by the ‘globalists,'” the report says.

If he’s fired, it might be seen as a shift by Trump’s administration toward the center and that would be helpful on almost every front. USD/JPY is higher by 35 pips on the report.
