Steve Bannon quits Breitbart after explosive Trump book

Steve Bannon

Steve Bannon, former chief strategist to President Trump, has stepped down from far-right news website Breitbart.

Breitbart announced Tuesday that Bannon would step down as executive chairman of the conservative news site.

Bannon, the former executive chairman of Breitbart News, was quoted in Wolff's book accusing the president's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., of treason for taking a meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer at Trump Tower during the 2016 election after being promised damaging information on Hillary Clinton. "When he was sacked, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind", Trump said.

In his statement Sunday, Bannon praised Trump "both a patriot and a good man".

"I don't think he'll be quiet or silent for very long", Kurt Bardella, a former Breitbart spokesman, told me. "He has been relentless in his advocacy for his father and the agenda that has helped turn our country around", said Mr Bannon in his apology.

Surely he must know that the publication of Wolff's book, Fire and Fury, would spark an all-out war, and possibly provoke the president into questioning his sanity and giving him a nickname like "Sloppy Steve".

Steve Bannon is out at Breitbart after a controversial book caused a rift between him and the White House, and Donna Brazile isn't going to let that pass without comment. "It seems to me that the president essentially fired Bannon from Breitbart".

Bannon did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Reuters. When he was sacked, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind, " the president said.

Later Tuesday, Bannon tweeted that Breitbart "has come along way and has really just begun its mission".

At Breitbart, the writing was on the wall for Bannon after one of his main benefactors, Rebekah Mercer, criticized him in public remarks. With an office in the West Wing and a direct line to the Oval Office - he reported to no one but the president initially - he seemed well positioned to wreak havoc on the political institutions and leaders he railed against as too corrupt and self-serving. He criticised administration policies and, in an even greater transgression, took aim at Donald Trump's own family in sharply personal terms.

But those projects might require fundraising and Bannon, through his falling-out with Trump, has alienated the billionaire Mercer clan, which would have been his most natural source of financial support.
