Signaling a rift between U.S. President Donald Trump and one of the main architects of his presidential victory, chief White House strategist Stephen Bannon threatened to quit if he were removed from the National Security Council, The New York Times reported Wednesday evening, citing sources in the White House.
The anonymous sources told the newspaper that Bannon had “resisted the move,” and threatened to resign if the change was made, claims that were denied by his team when questioned about the story.
The report came hours after Trump removed Bannon from the National Security Council, reversing his controversial decision earlier this year to give his much maligned political adviser an unprecedented role in national security discussions.
The shift was orchestrated by Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster, Trump’s new national security adviser who some saw as at odds with Bannon and his ideas.
The general “insisted on purging a political adviser from the Situation Room where decisions about war and peace are made,” the sources said.
McMaster had previously told some national security experts he felt he was in a “battle to the death” with Bannon and others on the White House staff.
The newspaper said in recent weeks that other senior advisers in the White House — including Trump’s daughter Ivanka and her senior White House advisor husband Jared Kushner — have expressed displeasure with Bannon, blaming him for back-to-back high-profile defeats over immigration and healthcare.
The New York Times also reported that the president was frustrated that the media credited Bannon for the Trump administration’s agenda and was unhappy his top adviser was widely referred to as “President Bannon.”
Bannon, the former executive chairman of the far-right media outlet Breitbart News, has been accused of being a white supremacist and antisemitic.
His removal from the security council comes as polls show Bannon is even less popular than Trump, whose 34 percent approval rating is the lowest of any president in history at this point in their first term.
STEVE BANNON WAS NOT THROWN OFF THE NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL
Besides the story about Bashar Al-Assad gassing millions of children, the Jew media has been going nuts about President Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon getting thrown off the National Security Council. Turns out this is false. He’s still on the NSC and attended an NSC meeting today. He has just been taken off of one of the committees. This could have been for any number of logistical reasons. It doesn’t necessarily mean that he’s out of favor with Trump etc..
The fact that the Jew media was foaming at the mouth celebrating his alleged demotion shows how ridiculously biased they are. They still seem to think that anybody to the political right of Bill Clinton is a White supremacist who lynches Jews and niggers. Their propaganda has gotten hilariously out of control.
I honestly don’t get why Bannon is painted as this evil Nazi boogieman type character. All because he ran Breitbart for awhile? While there is some overlap in our views, he’s not a terribly hardcore figure. With the way they talk you would have thought that he’s been drafting plans with Ben Garrison to build gas chambers!

STEET SHITTER NIKKI HALEY PUSHING FOR WAR WITH SYRIA AFTER ASSAD ALLEGEDLY GASSES MILLIONS OF CHILDREN
The street shitting monkey Nikki Haley otherwise known as Nimrata Randhawa is pushing for war against Syria after Bashar Al-Assad allegedly gassed millions of children the other day.
This has been the narrative pushed by the Jewish propaganda machine all day. Assad gassed millions of kids so we have to go to war against him. It is utterly ridiculous and stupid. How can Haley know definitively that Assad gassed millions of kids? Because of pictures posted on the Internet?
If it could be proved that Assad gassed 60 trillion kids because he thought it was funny I would not support a war against him. The only reason this horrible situation exists is because of Western financing of Islamic terrorist groups within Syria.
Assad is a secular leader who has protected Christian minorities against Islamists. Going to war against him does not benefit any political actor in the region with the exception of Israel.
They are trying to emotionally blackmail the White House into going to war against Syria.
