President Donald Trump's decision to kick Steve Bannon off the National Security Council may be just the beginning.
The president may be planning to not only boot Bannon from his job as chief strategist, but may also replace chief of staff Reince Priebus, according to a report from Axios. Although Axios received this tip from a number of aides and advisers, one of them cautioned that "it's very unclear the president's willing to pull that trigger."
While there aren't any indications about who Trump would choose as his new chief strategist, a number of high-profile Republicanshave been reported to be under consideration for chief of staff. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California is perhaps the most prominent name on that list, followed by the director of the National Economic Council (and former Goldman Sachs banker) Gary Cohn. The list is rounded out by David Urban, who helped Trump win Pennsylvania during the 2016 presidential election, and Wayne Berman, who was assistant secretary of commerce under President George H. W. Bush and has extensive experience working on presidential campaigns.
