Bannon steps down from Breitbart News after drawing fire from Trump

Bannon quits Breitbart News amid Trump book furor Bannon steps down from Breitbart News after drawing fire from Trump

The right-wing news organization confirmed the move on its website after the former White House chief strategist was quoted in the tell-all book criticising President Donald Trump. The statement declined to offer a reason for Bannon's departure. "Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my presidency".

"Well I think he probably had no idea he was speaking to me for this book", Wolff said of Trump in the interview. Bannon, who is Trump's former chief strategist, sought to make amends on Sunday, saying in a statement that his description was aimed at former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, not Trump's son.

Wolff's book was not the first time Bannon has criticized President Trump. In the book, Bannon called Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower in June 2016 "treasonous".

The quotes sent Trump into a fury and a Twitter tweet storm that called Bannon "out of a job" and "out of his mind".

Former Trump staffer Stephen K. Bannon is stepping down as executive editor of Breitbart News, multiple media outlets report.

Bannon said the comments in the book were not accurate.

Bannon has also lost his talk show on SiriusXM radio, the company said on Tuesday.

Myanmar authorities charge Reuters journalists with obtaining state secrets
Government spokesman U Zaw Htay declined to comment when asked if the two officers had been or would also be charged. In a report, United Nations investigators said such violations may have constituted crimes against humanity.

Bannon has not yet announced what he plans to do next, but has promised to do so "soon". If an average hard-working stiff indulged in more than five minutes of executive time at work he'd get canned.

"He's gone from the top of the mountain to the deepest valley, and it was all self-inflicted", a friend of Bannon's told the Washington Post "Breitbart was his voice and it's been taken away from him, leaving him with nothing".

On Tuesday Bannon released a routine statement on the development where he said he's "proud of what the Breitbart team has accomplished in so short a period of time in building out a world-class news platform".

Bannon left the White House just four months later, but by then Ailes had died.

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. She and father Robert were originally responsible for bringing Bannon onto Trump's campaign team.

Still, in the apology Mr Bannon described his support for the President's agenda as "unwavering" and said he was the "only person to date to conduct a global effort to preach the message of Trump and Trumpism".
