Bannon has already returned to his post as executive chairman at Breitbart News.

From Breitbart, there was a dramatic one-word warning.

"Joel Pollak, an editor-at-large for Breitbart, tweeted out "#WAR" shortly after news of Bannon's departure from the White House became public. In the interview, Bannon said he voluntarily chose to leave the White House.

Prior to joining the Trump election campaign, Mr Bannon is said to have turned the news organisation into a forum for the alt-right, and there's no doubt he intends to keep pressing this agenda in his new role.

He pressed the president to enact some of his contentious campaign promises, including a travel ban and pulling out of the Paris climate change agreement.

"Personnel changes are worthless so long as President Trump continues to advance policies that disgrace our cherished American values", wrote House Minority Leader and San Francisco Democrat Nancy Pelosi.

Bannon has been accused of pushing Trump's views to the far-right, beyond what many conservative supporters of the president have considered acceptable. White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci was sacked a few days later, serving just 11 days in that role.

White House spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Friday would be Bannon's last day on the job. "We are grateful for his service and wish him the best", she said.

Rumors had been circling in recent weeks that Bannon was 0n his way out, as several of Trump's top advisers, including newly-appointed chief of staff General John Kelly, urged the President to cut ties with the controversial political figure.

Last weekend, the talk-show host joked that Jared Kushner - who is Jewish - would be taking over Bannon's position, which is something the "White Supremacists" would not like.

The line about Trump's "natural tendency" is exactly what Bannon meant about covering for the president. He is a good person. "I think that.his (Trump's) actual default position is the position of his base, the position that got him elected". "He's a friend of mine, but Mr. Bannon came on very late", he said.

In an earlier video, posted in April, he had threatened to drop "the motherlode" if Mr Bannon was sacked.
