Steve Bannon leaves White House role

And Bannon is like his golfing buddy that he goes and smokes cigars with.

Observers said that Bannon's departure from the White House on Friday has energised him. Bannon's time with Trump administration ended on Friday, and it's unclear as to if he resigned or was sacked. The message was delivered this morning from Kelly, who was with the president at his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Seen as the driving force behind Trump's nationalist-populist agenda - making him a hero of the so-called "alt right" - Bannon's presence at the White House has been contested from the start.

Bannon offered his resignation to Trump on August 7, according to one person close to the adviser.

Still, after a year of keeping his anti-establishment views at least nominally quiet (even as he did everything within his variable power to quiet the voices of moderation in the Trump White House), Bannon's finally letting us all know what he really thinks. On Friday evening, in the top story on its homepage, Breitbart announced Bannon's return to the media company to again serve as executive chairman.

He returned to the right-wing news outlet Breitbart on Friday, vowing to fight Trump's opponents.

In addition to Ivanka and Jared, Bannon's other targets include H.R. McMaster, Dina Powell and Gary Cohn. After the election, Trump appointed him chief strategist.

"I feel jacked up", Bannon says. "Who else in the White House did?" Reince Priebus, Anthony Scaramucci, and Sean Spicer have all left their respective positions. "And there'll be all kinds of fights, and there'll be good days and bad days, but that presidency is over", Bannon said.

"It will be Bannon the barbarian", the person said. He's a friend of mine.

Bannon, the former head of the right-wing site Breitbart News, has been under fire since he began working for the Trump campaign past year.

The former leader of conservative Breitbart News has pushed Trump to follow through on his campaign promises and was the man behind many of his most controversial efforts, including Trump's travel ban and decision to pull out of the Paris Climate agreement.

"There's no military solution here, they got us", Bannon told the magazine.

While the President was on vacation in Bedminster, it was widely reported that Bannon had stayed behind in Washington.
