Steve Bannon loses his spot on the National Security Council amid administration shake up
The big news of the day is that Steve Bannon has lost his position on the National Security Council and his national security clearance has been revoked. You have all heard the news so I do not think I need to provide any links to the story. There are plenty of stories out there with various takes on this issue and you have all most likely read them by now, I would not be providing anything new.
To be honest I am not sure why Steve Bannon had a security clearance in the first place other than it being a reward for helping Donald Trump win the election and that alone does not qualify him to receive classified national security secrets. I actually think this was the proper move to make.
It is being reported that Steve Bannon will still have a high ranking position as an adviser to the President and I think that is probably where he is best suited. This does not look good and of course the left is running with this, claiming this shows the administration is in disarray, but I would remind the left that Donald Trump shook up his campaign staff a couple of times before settling on the winning combination. The left was claiming the Trump campaign was in disarray and yet he beat Hillary Clinton, could we see the same scenario play out this time around as well with Donald Trump winning in the end? We will have to wait and see…
I would rather see him get it right the first time but at least, through his actions if not verbally admitting it, he is willing to move on when he deems it necessary.
