Trump ‘considered sacking Steve Bannon’: report

President Donald Trump considered firing his chief strategist, Steve Bannon, as part of a staff shake-up at the White House, according to a White House insider.Reports in the U.S. media claimed that Trump was considered sacking Bannon and Priebus in April to put a lid on intense internal feuding, which pitted an ‘America First’ conservative faction led by Bannon against centrist Republicans who have converged around Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner.
According to the Times report, Priebus’s replacement as chief of staff, John Kelly, was backed by Bannon, who had helped bring the former general in to the White House. Bannon is not the only official whose position has been in jeopardy, in a White House that recently saw press secretary Sean Spiecer depart, reportedly in protest at Anthony Scarramucci's appointment as communications director. Scaramucci insulted Bannon in an interview with the New Yorker this week shortly after his appointment. "I'm not trying to suck my own cock [like Steve Bannon],” he allegedly said.
