How Bannon lost his political power
Steve Bannon built himself into a powerful political force over the last year and a half — from the head of Breitbart to the chief executive of Trump’s presidential campaign to his chief White House strategist. Now he's lost all of his political power in a matter of 72 hours.
Why it matters: Bannon was an influential figure in elevating Trump’s America First and Make America Great Again messages. He built a loyal and large following of conservatives via Breitbart, but particularly by selling this unique brand of Trumpism — and now that has all been stripped from him.
