Bannon was a key general election campaign adviser and has been a forceful but contentious presence in a divided White House.Speaking to reporters in Trump Tower, the president said Bannon is a friend and "not a racist".Bannon's supporters say Trump is being urged by advisers such as chief economic adviser Gary Cohn and deputy national security adviser Dina Powell to fire him.Kelly has also expressed concerns to Trump about Bannon, and is said to be particularly angry with a flood of negative stories about national security adviser H.R. McMaster that some in the White House believe are being leaked by Bannon.Kelly has grown weary of the conservative attacks on McMaster and believes that even if Bannon is not personally responsible for them, he has not done enough to quell them. Bannon has denied being behind the anti-McMaster campaign.Although Bannon enjoys a vocal core of supporters outside the White House, most of Trump's most trusted advisers long ago soured on him.Bannon didn't respond to requests for comment.
