Rep. Pramila Jayapal Introduces Resolution To Fire White Supremacists From White House

Murdoch pushing for Trump to fire Bannon

It is shameful that Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller, and Sebastian Gorka, who each have ties to extremist and white nationalist ideological groups and leaders, are serving as President Trump's top advisors.

Losing the cable news network would likely be more problematic for Trump than losing Breitbart.

'If it was up to me, he would be gone, ' continued Scaramucci.

"I like Mr. Bannon". "But he's a good person, and I think the press treats him frankly unfairly in that regard". The anti-Bannon campaign comes as Trump is under fire for not immediately condemning by name white supremacists and other hate groups after deadly violence last weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia. Bannon has also reportedly praised a far-right French writer named Charles Maurras who was sentenced to life in prison after World War II for collaboration with Nazi occupiers.

One of the senior officials said McMaster's anger over the campaign "is known to the president" but declined to say whether the national security adviser had told Trump directly or through General John Kelly, an ally and the president's new chief of staff.

The silence isn't surprising, since Bannon rarely talks (on the record) to the mainstream media, which he has described as an "opposition party" relative to the Trump administration.

According to the New York Times, Trump has sent Bannon "to a kind of internal exile" The two have not met face-to-face for more than a week.

According to NYT reporter Maggie Haberman, a source close to the White House told her that Bannon will be shitcanned either "this week or not for a long time".

"Breitbart has never been racist, it's been a flashpoint for people to write in frustration about the government failing them", said one former Trump transition adviser.

On Sunday, the president's daughter, Ivanka Trump Kushner, issued a statement with a more pointed assessment, saying there is "no place in society for racism, white supremacy and neo-Nazis".

"Look, I like Mr. Bannon".

"But we'll see what happens with Mr Bannon". "I think that's exactly what you'd see from Breitbart if they were to turn on Trump". One of the sources in particular said it's possible Bannon will be fired by the end of the week. "And it is a privilege every day to enable the national security team".

The White House press office did not respond to an email seeking comment on Jayapal's resolution Tuesday.

There's an ideological dimension to this as well: Bannon's hard-right, nationalist economic perspective and his reluctance to engage or expand military operations makes him clash with comparatively more moderate voices in the White House.

"That's not a fight he's going to win", the Republican said of Mr. Bannon.
