Steve Bannon is out. Now Trump is completely surrounded by Military Generals, who could easily be on the White House staff of a President Hillary Clinton.
The long rumored departure of Bannon came to fruition yesterday, after the controversial Trump advisor offered his resignation on August 7th.

According to Tucker Carlson, “Bannon kept a white board of all of Trump’s campaign promises.”
“The funny thing is, in that in some important ways, Steve Bannon was more traditionally liberal, than the liberals who spent the last year shrieking for his head…”
