As rumors have long been speculated, White House Strategist Steve Bannon has resigned. According to reports, the resignation was given on August 7.
Roger Stone, who has been well known for reliable sources and breaking information, foreshadowed the move in an article by the Daily Caller on Thursday, stating:
“Steve Bannon has failed to look out for the Trump constituency, while establishment “never Trumpers ” line up for cushy jobs and prestigious ambassadorships. Not understanding that “personnel is policy”, Bannon refused to fight for any of his allies or those who helped get Trump elected. It’s as if Steve felt the grubby business of patronage was below him.”
The dismissal comes as somewhat of a shock to many in Trump’s base, many of which believed Bannon was a formidable thread in the fabric of American Nationalism.
