Rumors are circulating around the fact White House Chief Strategist was just removed from the National Security Council.

US President Donald Trump has removed chief strategist Steve Bannon from the National Security Council, reversing a controversial early decision to give him access to the high-level meetings.
A new memorandum about the composition of the NSC was published in the Federal Register on Wednesday.
The memo no longer lists the chief strategist as a member of the principals committee, a group of high-ranking officials that convene to discuss pressing national security priorities.
The new memo also restores the director of national intelligence and the Joint Chiefs chairman to the principals committee.
Mr Bannon’s addition to the NSC sparked concerns from Trump critics, who said it was inappropriate for the political adviser to play a role on national security matters.
Despite the move, Bannon retained his security clearance, NBC said. https://t.co/YIK2ArcxJZ
