Steve Bannon’s been busy since leaving the White House, and it may not all be in service of the president’s agenda.
The controversial ex-advisor to President Trump split with his former boss last month, when he endorsed Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore over President Trump’s pick, Luther Strange. (Moore went on to win the primary race.)
And now, new comments in Vanity Fair suggest that Bannon has a dim view of President Trump’s chances of finishing his first term, placing the odds as low as 30 percent!
Here’s what the article says:
Several months ago, according to two sources with knowledge of the conversation, former chief strategist Steve Bannon told Trump that the risk to his presidency wasn’t impeachment, but the 25th Amendment—the provision by which a majority of the Cabinet can vote to remove the president. When Bannon mentioned the 25th Amendment, Trump said, “What’s that?” According to a source, Bannon has told people he thinks Trump has only a 30 percent chance of making it the full term.
The White House has vigorously denied reports this week that President Trump is unhappy, particularly when it comes to the status of Chief of Staff John Kelly. But there’s no comment yet from Bannon denying these remarks.
