GOP Lawmaker: 'Steve Bannon's White House Days Are Numbered'
Republican congresswoman Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen said Friday she believes a major White House shake-up is coming and that President Trump's chief strategist Steve Bannon may be on the way out.
"I think his days are numbered in that administration. And I think profound changes will be coming," she said on a Miami radio show this morning, predicting the "shake-up" will occur in the next few months.
Ros-Lehtinen said it would be "welcome news for the nation" if Bannon exits the White House. Earlier this week, the White House announced Bannon was no longer serving on the National Security Council.
She declined to specify her issue with the former Breitbart CEO, but seemed to point to his views on immigration and refugees.
"His views are not in line with our country. We are an inclusive country that welcomes different points of views. His ties to certain groups are very worrisome," she said.
Reports in recent days have claimed there is a growing behind-the-scenes feud between Bannon and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, who's also a top adviser.
The Wall Street Journal reported Friday afternoon that Trump is considering a major staff shake-up to include Bannon and Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.
