The Washington Examiner reports:
President Trump touted his support on Saturday for Steve Bannon’s transition from the White House back to Breitbart News. Earlier in the day, Trump tweeted his thanks to Bannon for serving him in his campaign and administration.
The White House confirmed on Friday, following reports, that Bannon would no longer be Trump’s cheif strategist. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders claimed that the decision was mutual, although a slew of reports claimed he was fired.
Steve Bannon will be a tough and smart new voice at @BreitbartNews…maybe even better than ever before. Fake News needs the competition!
