House Dems call for ouster of three White House advisors

President Donald Trump on Tuesday declined to offer reassurances about the fate of chief strategist Steve Bannon inside the White House. A new report suggests that Bannon will be removed from Trump's inner circle within a matter of days. To pretend to denounce racist rhetoric and dispel actions by white supremacists as "repugnant" while also entrusting in and employing individuals like Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller and Sebastian Gorka, who espouse these extreme views, boggles the mind.

At an impromptu press conference Tuesday, Trump answered questions about his confidence in his top adviser by saying "we'll see what happens".

Over 30 Democratic House members have signed onto a resolution that was introduced by Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) calling on President Donald Trump to rid the White Houe and his administration of anyone who supports white supremacists.

Speaking to reporters in Trump Tower, the president said Bannon is a friend and "a good man; he is not a racist".

As the campaign to oust Mr. Bannon intensifies, people close to him have taken note especially of talk-show appearances on Sunday and Monday by Anthony Scaramucci, the former White House communications director who clashed with Mr. Bannon before being fired himself last month.

Referencing Bannon's boasts about helping to promote the alt-right, Palomarez also called for the former Breitbart News CEO's resignation, saying that members of the administration continued to alienate Hispanic business leaders and were "more anxious about winning votes through dog whistles and winks and nods to the most evil elements of our society than in maintaining the moral authority of the presidency".

Mr. Trump said the CEOs who departed were "embarrassed" that their companies weren't manufacturing more of their products in the U.S. Bannon has denied being behind the anti-McMaster campaign.

A "well-placed source" from the West Wing tells CBS News that Steve Bannon could exit the White House by Friday.

Thirty-one representatives co-sponsor the bill, and House Minority leader Nanci Pelosi is all over the news calling for Trump to fire Bannon, too. He is also reportedly butting heads with Trump's new chief of staff, John Kelly.

McMaster is part of a more pragmatic group that Bannon likes to label "globalists".

"Those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans", he said at the White House.

Conservative commentator Mike Cernovich is a Bannon ally and has been a vocal critic of McMaster, even leveling personal attacks against him.

"That's not a fight he's going to win", the Republican said of Mr. Bannon.
