Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the news in a statement to CNN saying that the decision was mutual. “White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Steve Bannon have mutually agreed today would be Steve’s last day,” Sanders said. “We are grateful for his service and wish him the best.”

President Donald Trump had previously been vague about Bannon’s future in the White House during a chaotic press conference in New York City on Tuesday, August 15. “We’ll see what happens with Mr. Bannon,” he told reporters at the time, but defended the controversial media executive as “not a racist” and a “friend.”

Amid the news, celebrities including Alyssa Milano and Rosie O’Donnell have taken to social media to express their thoughts on the matter.

“Bannon is out. Beware!” Milano wrote. “He can do the exact same thing without an official title in the Administration. Nothing changes until Trump is out.”
