President Donald Trump sparked a firestorm in the liberal media when he announced that he would be appointing Breitbart executive editor to the National Security Council.
Breitbart, a conservative news and opinion site, has been under attack from the leftists and progressives in America for ages, as its conservative slant and popularity have been threatening the media’s status quo from the onset. Bannon has been considered one of the leaders of the “alt-right”, a term now used as a derogatory slur by the democrats, the leftist media, and a slew of internet trolls who have crawled out from under their bridges to claim the job of “journalist”.
Donald Trump removed Bannon from the National Security Council today, seemingly coinciding with the revelations surrounding Susan Rice and her illicit divulging of the identities of the President’s team during the 2016 campaign.
“President Donald Trump’s Senior adviser Stephen K. Bannon has exited his role on President Donald Trump’s National Security Council, claiming that his mission is complete.
“’Susan Rice operationalized the NSC during the last administration. I was put on to ensure that it was de-operationalized,’ Bannon said in a statement to the Wall Street Journal.
“The council suffered a tumultuous transition after Trump’s first National Security Adviser Gen. Michael Flynn resigned less than a month after he took office and was replaced by Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster.”
Steve Bannon will be maintaining his security clearance, according to reports, signaling that the former editor will continue to impact the Trump presidency for some time to come.
