Bannon is out

Steve Bannon is out as White House chief strategist.

Bannon, a star of the so-called alt-right, with his radically conservative online publication, Breitbart, is credited with helping Donald Trump win the presidency. Trump is quoted as telling aides he was removing Bannon, but according to Bannon’s former publication, he actually submitted his resignation Aug. 7.
