House Dems call for ouster of three White House advisors

The protest in Charlottesville was organised by members of the so-called alt-Right or alternative Right

White House chief strategist Steven Bannon's future in the Trump administration is reportedly in doubt.

Pressed to clarify Bannon's fate in a press conference at Trump Tower on Monday, Trump responded: "We'll see what happens".

Trump has for months considered ousting Bannon, and many critics have pressured the president to do so after Trump waited two days to blame white supremacists for the violence in Charlottesville.

It cites Bannon's role as the co-founder of the "alt-right" website Breitbart.

Bannon has been in a precarious position before but Trump has opted to keep him, in part because his chief strategist played a major role in his election victory and is backed by numerous president's most loyal rank-and-file supporters. It is shameful that Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller, and Sebastian Gorka, who each have ties to extremist and white nationalist ideological groups and leaders, are serving as President Trump's top advisors. Bannon, he said, seems willing to "tolerate something that's intolerable" in Trump's base.

"We find it remarkably offensive that anyone would suggest that Steve Bannon or anyone else tells us what to say or what not to say", the source said.

"I never spoke to Mr. Bannon about it", Trump said, seeking to quiet suspicions that his chief strategist influenced his decision to not directly condemn white nationalists by name in his remarks Saturday.

Baltimore removes all four of its Confederate statues overnight
Lee , " Stonewall " Jackson and Jefferson Davis were paid for by the Ku Klux Klan and celebrated racism, terror, and division. The Southern Poverty Law Center past year documented 718 Confederate monuments and statues, according to the news station.

"Denouncing white supremacy without equivocation and without reservation should have been a no-brainer for President Trump", Palomarez said in a statement provided to Business Insider.

"If President Trump truly wants to start healing the country post-Charlottesville, he should fire the white supremacists working for him in the White House".

He also warns that the president would alienate his most loyal supporters if he fires Bannon.

"The president obviously is very nervous and afraid of firing him", a source close to the White House told Reuters. "It's time to get these people out of the White House".

Gorka previously served as Breitbart's national security editor before joining Trump's staff.

The statement continued: "If the president wishes to maintain any credibility with the Hispanic community and other minority communities, he needs to purge his administration of all those who disparage diversity and inclusivity".
