GOP Senator Praises ‘Great Personnel Decisions by John Kelly’ After Bannon Departure

Following the departure of Steve Bannon from the White House, Republican Senator Pat Toomey offered Chief of Staff John Kelly some praise for his “great personnel decisions”:

Bannon claimed in his Weekly Standard interview Friday this is how the decision for him to go went down:

Bannon says that his departure was voluntary, and that he’d planned it to coincide with the one-year anniversary of his joining the Trump campaign as chief executive, on August 14, 2016.

“On August 7th , I talked to [Chief of Staff John] Kelly and to the President, and I told them that my resignation would be effective the following Monday, on the 14th,” he said. “I’d always planned on spending one year. General Kelly has brought in a great new system, but I said it would be best. I want to get back to Breitbart.”
