Steve Bannon remains loyal to President Trump and will be far more useful to him outside of the White House, asserts Sabrina Siddiqui of the Guardian. His leaving the administration has put him back at the head of his right-wing news outlet, Breitbart, with which he plans to reinforce Trump’s agenda. In this position, he will have more influence over the country than he did on Capitol Hill. He has declared that he will go after Trump’s “enemies,” which may include globalists and GOP members that criticized the president. Relations between the two men are good, and Bannon will continue to be useful to Trump.

The dismissal of Chief Strategist Steve Bannon will let loose his criticism of White House staffers whom he dislikes, infers Rosie Gray of The Atlantic. This could significantly hurt Trump, who likely fired him to quell this sort of controversy. No longer answering to the president will allow Bannon to directly criticize the people in the administration that hold "globalist" views. Jared Kushner and H.R. McMaster, who had publicly tense relationships with the ex-Chief Strategist, might fall victim to media attacks from Breitbart now. This will further hurt the White House team and indirectly damage the president.
