Bannon in trouble?

This is from Axios. It is a relatively new newsite but I like it and so far it has been pretty accurate. This story is mostly the famous unnamed sources but given their track record worth thinking about, IMO.

Trump suspects Bannon of leaking, putting job in jeopardy

President Trump has told close associates that he believes Steve Bannon is behind damaging leaks about White House colleagues, putting the chief strategist's job in fresh jeopardy, sources close to the president tell me.
Trump has told associates he's fed up with what he sees as self-promotion by Bannon, who did not join the core team this week at the president's golf club in Bedminster, N.J.
Bannon's time with Trump has diminished since the new chief of staff, retired Marine Gen. John Kelly, took over and imposed discipline on the circus around the Oval Office.
Bannon declined to comment.
Why it matters: POTUS has been frustrated with Bannon in the past, but he never had as easy a vehicle for getting rid of him. Kelly is expected to make West Wing changes, anyway. As one top aide said: "Kelly can do the dirty work."
Now Bannon is a man on an island, with very few true allies in the building.
Some caveats: Trump's anger with Bannon is nothing new, and Bannon survived Jared Kushner's attempt to get rid of him early in the administration. It's always perilous to say Trump is going to oust anybody.

The speculation about Bannon goes all the way back to April. He's a wild card and so is Trump. Trump trusts NO ONE except his kids. Nothing Trump does would surprise me now.
