Steve Bannon is leaving the Trump White House.
White House chief of staff John Kelly confirmed the news on Friday.
As of Friday morning the New York Times reported Bannon was still working in the White House — despite offering Trump his resignation on August 7.
CNN reported that Friday would be his last day and that he was ‘essentially forced out’.
‘We’ll see what happens with Mr. Bannon’ Trump said at his controversial Trump Tower press conference on Tuesday.
His chief White House strategist has since gone on a media tour.
But as CNN’s Jim Acosta reported on Friday sources in the White House said Trump did not like Bannon stealing the spotlight — despite what was widely criticized as a disastrous week for the president.
