Traders on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) erupted into cheers when they heard the news that President Donald Trump’s White House has parted ways with chief White House political strategist Stephen K. Bannon.
CNBC broke the news live and microphones captured the sound of elated cheers.
