White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is the latest top aide of President Donald Trump to leave his post.
Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that today was his last day.
His exit follows a review of his position by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.
Bannon, a right‑wing nationalist and former head of Breitbart.com, helped shape the "America First" message of Trump's election campaign.
But critics had accused the 63‑year‑old of harbouring anti‑Semitic and white supremacist views.
In another departure from Trump's team, billionaire investor Carl Icahn announced he was ending his role as the president's special advisor on regulatory reform, after facing criticism that his advice could benefit his own businesses.
Bannon is known to have competed for influence in the West Wing against more moderate factions, including members of the Trump family.
