Steve Bannon Just Got Removed From The National Security Council
President Donald Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon, has been removed from the National Security Council, according to a senior administration official, CNN reported.
A White House official says Bannon was only on board to oversee now-ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s work to “de-operationalize” the National Security Council from the broad purview it had under Susan Rice, according to the report.
It was a nontraditional role for a political hand like Bannon to have on the high-level policy council.
Trump came under fire for replacing military experts and giving Bannon control of the National Security Council.
