'Sloppy Steve' Bannon Reportedly Forced out at Breitbart After Feud With Trump

13 Января 2018

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is stepping down as chairman of Breitbart News Network after a public break with President Donald Trump.

In addition, Sirius XM announced on Tuesday that it has severed its relationship with Bannon, who was hosting a show on the satellite radio provider, "since our programming agreement is with Breitbart News".

The president hit back at Bannon, saying he had "lost his mind".

Mr Trump also said in an official statement from the White House that */ /*- */ Mr Bannon "has nothing to do with me or my Presidency".

Bannon attempted to backtrack days later, saying he "regrets" his comments; adding they were only intended for Paul Manafort, not the President's eldest son.

Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said she visits the White House once a week, and "no one questions the stability of the president".

One of the chief architects of the nativist Make America Great Again rebellion has gone from one of the top jobs in the White House to being too toxic even for their house publication Breitbart.

His departure from the site is the latest instalment in a saga that began when remarks attributed to Bannon were leaked during promotions for Michael Wolff's book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

Bannon maintained his visibility by rejoining Breitbart in August and directing it to serve his political ends as the insurgent voice of the "anti-establishment" wing of the Republican Party, a faction that many critics saw as a socially intolerant and racist fringe of white nationalism. But this is absolutely true, that Steve Bannon is responsible for Donald Trump's election.

Bannon said the comments in the book were not accurate.

Bannon left the White House last summer and returned to his position as executive chairman at Breitbart News, but reports indicated he had fallen out of favor with wealthy conservative backers as his comments in Wolff's book surfaced. When he was sacked, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind, " the president said. "It wasn't just Bannon's quotes to Wolff, but how he mishandled the fallout". Mercer was also behind Bannon's ouster from Breitbart, according to the New York Times.

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.
