President Donald Trump has decided to push out his chief strategist Steve Bannon, but White House officials were still discussing when and how, the New York Times reported on Friday, citing two unnamed administration officials. An official told Reuters earlier on Friday that a review of Bannon’s position by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly was near an end and that a decision would likely be made soon.

The Times cited a person close to Bannon as saying the official had submitted his resignation on Aug. 7 and that it was to be announced this week, but had been delayed by the fallout from a rally by white nationalists in Virginia over the weekend.

Bloomberg reports that the departure of Bannon, the chief executive of Trump’s presidential campaign and an architect of his election victory, removes a champion of conservative populism from the White House. The former chairman of Breitbart News, Bannon served as a link to the so-called “alt-right” movement attuned to the attitudes and opinions of the president’s base. Trump is still debating the time and manner of Bannon’s exit and may still change his mind, the Times reported, citing two administration officials.
