You know it would not belong. Donald Trump explodes after Steve Bannon accuses his son of a treasonous and unpatriotic act. The noose is closing in on the Donald and it is starting to show.
Donald Trump is not taking Steve Bannon's attack lightly. He came out with a statement destroying Bannon. The president better tread-lightly.
The New York Times reported about Trump's written statement disparaging Bannon.
WASHINGTON — President Trump essentially excommunicated his onetime chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon on Wednesday, dismissing him as an aide who had “very little to do with our historic victory” and has now “lost his mind.” In a written statement, Mr. Trump fired back at Mr. Bannon, who had made caustic comments about the president and his family to the author of a new tell-all book about the Trump White House. While Mr. Bannon had been pushed out of the White House last summer, he had remained in touch with Mr. Trump, but the two now appear to have reached a breaking point.
“Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency,” Mr. Trump said in the statement. “When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind.” Mr. Trump berated Mr. Bannon for the loss of a Senate seat in Alabama and said the former adviser did not represent him but is “only in it for himself.”
“Steve pretends to be at war with the media, which he calls the opposition party, yet he spent his time at the White House leaking false information to the media to make himself seem far more important than he was,” Mr. Trump added. “It is the only thing he does well. Steve was rarely in a one-on-one meeting with me and only pretends to have had influence to fool a few people with no access and no clue, whom he helped write phony books.”
Now sit back and enjoy the popcorn. Unfortunately, the mainstream media will concentrate on this fight while the destructive part of the administration continues to decimate the environment, pilfer the poor & the middle-class, and remove regulations that protect Americans from the ills of big business.
