“The populist-nationalist movement got a lot stronger today,” Breitbart News editor-in-chief Alex Marlow was quoted as saying in an article published by Breitbart on the issue. “Breitbart gained an executive chairman with his finger on the pulse of the Trump agenda.“
Banon also clarified his attitude towards the current White House administration.
“If there’s any confusion out there, let me clear it up.
I’m leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents… on Capitol Hill, in the media, and in corporate America,” Bannon said an an interview with Bloomberg.
Earlier, Bannon was forced to resign from his post in the White House on Friday. Media linked the decision with a standoff between Bannon and more mainstream members of the White House administration and the establishmend that the former Trump chief strategist allegedly lost.
According to ABC News‘ source, “it was ultimately the president’s decision to dismiss Bannon. The message was delivered this morning from Kelly, who was with the president at his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey. Bannon was at the White House when he received the call that it was time for him to leave.”
