Donald Trump won pulse again. His former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, man who one day came to be considered grey eminence of Oval Office, has been expelled from his last refuge.

The departure arrives after White House, sulphurous for its statements against president in controversial book Fire and Fury, asked shareholders to Desembarazasen of him and that President himself, in a tweet, announced that his main economic support , Mercer family, had already decided to leave him alone. With this step, liquidation of who was Trump's most influential and scary advisor is completed.
Former officer of Navy, who became banker of Goldman Sachs, a Hollywood producer and media agitator of far right, Bannon, 64 years old, had emerged as champion of "deconstruction" of system. Defending strategy of permanent tension, his stated goal was to end conservative establishment in Washington and return United States to "patriotic path."

Ideologically attached to billionaire, his fate began to decay in White House. Contact with reality showed him vulnerable. His campaign screeds were no longer welcome by more rigorous cabinet members. In April he was expelled from National Security Council and in August he lost Trump's confidence and had to leave his post. It was a sweet-looking exit. The president dismissed him with good words and he sought rekindling in his old news portal.
As president of this xenophobic platform, he attempted to lead an "insurrection" against conservative establishment and its Senate leader, Mitch McConnell.

The presidential reaction was fulminant. Trump claimed that Bannon "had lost his head" and his praetorian guard pressured owners of Breitbart. In spite of public apologies of Bannon, in a few days Oval Office achieved its purpose. The exit was presented yesterday in a statement as "an orderly transition". Few believed it.
