  • Vice President Mike Pence Ivanka Trump and Senior Advisor to the President Jared Kushner listen to U.S. President Donald Trump deliver brief remarks in the Diplomatic Room following a shooting that injured a member of Congress and law enforcement officer

Earlier in the day, the President tweeted: "I want to thank Steve Bannon for his service".

'He came to the campaign during my run against Crooked Hillary Clinton - it was great!' the president adds.

Steve Bannon, the latest casualty, now says, "The Trump presidency that we fought, and won, is over".

Bannon is credited with helping Trump win the White House by pushing a populist, nationalist message after joining the campaign. But that presidency is over. But Mr. Trump changed his mind as several defenders of Mr. Bannon warned the president that he risked losing supporters who saw Mr. Bannon as a conduit of their views.

The arrival at the White House of former US Marine General John Kelly as chief of staff in July appears to have been the trigger for Bannon's departure. Now, Steve Bannon is the next to go.

Bannon, who headed the controversial right-wing website "Breitbart News" before joining the Trump administration, also denied that he was sacked from the key position.

Bannon returned to Breitbart News on Friday just hours after parting ways with the White House. The motherlode. If Bannon is removed, there are going to be divorces, because I know about the mistresses, the sugar babies, the drugs, the pill popping, the orgies.

The president and senior White House officials were debating when and how to dismiss Mr. Bannon.

'We are grateful for his service and wish him the best'.

The 63-year-old former Navy officer, Goldman Sachs investment banker and Hollywood movie producer said his departure from the White House signalled a major shift for the Trump agenda. With Bannon at the helm, Breitbart took on a more nationalistic slant, appealing to the alt-right movement.

Bannon, 63, has touted Breitbart as a conservative counterpoint to what he views as the liberal bias of USA news outlets and a platform for the so-called alt-right, a loose confederation of neo-Nazis, white supremacists and anti-Semites.

Bannon's ousting comes as the president is increasingly isolated after his comments following white supremacist violence in Charlottesville last Saturday.

"We'll see", he said in response to questions about Bannon's status.

Mr Bannon frequently clashed with Mr Kushner and others in the administration who sought a more traditional, globalist approach. The two administration officials cautioned that Mr. Trump is known to be averse to confrontation within his inner circle, and could decide to keep on Mr. Bannon for some time.
