It's Official: Steve Bannon Has Been Removed From The National Security Council

By Mark Pygas

Following his role in Donald Trump's successful presidential election, Stephen Bannon, former executive chair of Breitbart, was given the role of White House Chief Strategist. And it's fair to say that people were rightfully concerned that the leader of the alt-right, who was taken to court by his ex-wife on charges of domestic violence and accusations of anti-antisemitism, could be given such a powerful position. 

Even more shocking was President Donald Trump's decision to add Bannon to the National Security Council, a role for which he had no experience whatsoever. Many others were concerned that issues of national security could make their way back to Breitbart. 

But now, he's out. Bloomberg, CNN, and a host of other publications are reporting that Bannon has been removed from the National Security Council following a reshuffling by President Donald Trump.
