President Trump’s chief strategist Stephen Bannon is leaving the White House, a stunning turn of events for the man who had been the caretaker and champion of Trump’s populist campaign message. His departure is another sign that new chief of staff John Kelly has broad authority to clean house in a West Wing that has been hobbled by infighting and leaks. “White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Steve Bannon have mutually agreed today would be Steve’s last day. We are grateful for his service and wish him the best,” said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in a statement.
