Steven Bannon Is Out At Breitbart

11 January, 2018, 09:34 | Author: Constance French
  • Steve Bannon was quoted in a new book about the Donald Trump White House as calling Donald Trump Jr. ‘treasonous’ and ‘unpatriotic

"I'm proud of what the Breitbart team has accomplished in so short a period of time in building out a world-class news platform", Bannon said. "And those statements still stand", he said.

President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu participate in a joint news conference in the East Room of the White House in Washington, Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2017.

Despite receiving tremendous push-back from the White House - which characterized the book a work of "trashy tabloid fiction" - author Michael Wolff said Trump and he would likely be "flattering" each other in a few minutes if they ever met again.

Excerpts from the book started surfacing last week and Trump and White House staffers spent most of last week denying most of Wolff's descriptions of an Oval Office in tumoil and a president coming unhinged.

In addition, as if to rub salt in Trump's wounds, Bannon makes caustic remarks in the book about the president's ability to follow complex subjects.

Wolff said he liked the president when he began reporting on the book, which initially was meant to be a book about the first 100 days of the Trump administration.

In another quote from the book attributed to Bannon, he predicted authorities would get Don Jr. He issued a statement Sunday praising the president's eldest son. "He has been relentless in his advocacy for his father and the agenda that has helped turn our country around". "So, when I met Michael Wolff in Reince Priebus" office, where he was waiting to talk to Steve Bannon, and after I had been told to also speak to him for his book, my attitude was polite but firm: "Thanks but no thanks.' Our brief encounter reinforced my gut feeling that this oleaginous scribe had no interest in being fair and unbiased".

Conservative media outlet Breitbart News on Tuesday announced that Steve Bannon is stepping down as Breitbart's executive chairman.
