Ex-White House Chief Strategist White Supremacist Steve Bannon, “Only A 30 Percent Chance Trump Finishes Out His Term”

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon reportedly has told people he thinks President Donald Trump has just a 30% chance of completing his four-year term.  The detail came in an explosive report from Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman on Wednesday that cited several sources close to the president.

According to two of the sources, Bannon warned Trump several months ago about the possibility of getting removed from office via the 25th Amendment, prompting Trump to ask, “What’s that?”

A stipulation of the 25th Amendment allows the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet — that is, 13 of 24 Cabinet members — to vote the president out of office. Bannon reportedly considered it a more likely scenario than Trump’s impeachment.
Political observers have questioned for months whether Trump will serve the entirety of his four-year term. Speculation has only increased since Sunday, when Republican Sen. Bob Corker issued a scathing critique of Trump to The New York Times in which he called the White House “an adult day care center” and said the president could set the country “on the path to World War III.”
