Pence: Steve Bannon Will Still Play ‘Important Policy Role’

In a preview of his interview with Fox’s Martha MacCallum tonight, Vice President Mike Pence addresses Steve Bannon no longer having a permanent seat on the National Security Council.

MacCallum asked, “So it’s not a demotion for Steve Bannon?”

He said no, praising both him and Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert (whose position is being downgraded in the shakeup) as “highly valued members of this administration” who are going to “continue to play important policy roles.”

He said the NSC shakeup is a “natural evolution” to make sure that it’s organized in a way that “best serves the president in resolving and making those difficult decisions.”

Watch above, via Fox News. MacCallum’s full interview with Pence airs tonight at 7 p.m. ET on The First 100 Days.
