Today (Wednesday), according to a senior-level official of the White House, US President Donald Trump removed his senior strategical adviser Steve Bannon from the National Security Council (NSC).

Bannon, who was previously the executive of far-right Breitbart News, was Trump’s campaign manager. With the original announcement of the appointment, the White House defended the decision in light of Bannon's military past as an officer in the US Navy. However, that did not prevent the sharp waves of criticism from all sides of the political map due to the appointment of a political figure for a defense position.

Banon's removal from the position comes as part of a reorganization of the NSC, in which National Security Adviser Herbert Raymond McMaster was given responsibility for running the council's meetings and organizing its agenda, according to the Bloomberg News, which first published the story.
