Scaramucci: Steve Bannon was a 'bad hire'

13 January 2018

Its author Wolff, who was given the run of the White House for more than a year, says it was based on more than 200 interviews with Mr Trump and his associates, including senior staff such as former chief strategist Steve Bannon.

He initially left Breitbart in 2016 to lead Mr Trump's unconventional election campaign.

President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu participate in a joint news conference in the East Room of the White House in Washington, Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2017.

The move comes days after Bannon reversed course from comments he made about Donald Trump a new book about the Trump presidency by Michael Wolff.

Some buyers have apparently confused it with Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, by journalist Michael Wolff.

Wolff's book, released on Friday, sent shockwaves through the Trump administration with fiery quotes about the Trump family and numerous claims about the president's intelligence and competence. "It's in his imagination", Trump said Saturday. He backed Republican ex-Judge Roy Moore in Alabama's Republican Senate primary over then-Sen. "Ran for president one time and won".

A person familiar with Breitbart said that the advertising boycott had been a major hit to the organization, and that Rebekah Mercer didn't want to continue to fund it.

"Breitbart depends on private financing because they experienced this massive advertiser boycott", said Kurt Bardella, a former Breitbart spokesman.

Mercer publicly broke from Bannon in a statement last week after months of distancing herself from him.

Haley already has determined "Trump's tenure would last, at best, a single term", and she could position herself as an heir apparent, according to excerpts obtained by the Times of London.

Steve Bannon is stepping down from Breitbart News.

President Donald Trump and his supporters have called the book fiction, and Trump attorney Charles J. Harder last week sent a cease-and-desist letter to Henry Holt & Company, threatening legal action.

Reports immediately surfaced that Breitbart executives had begun discussions about life after the man responsible for turning it into a voice of the alt-right.

The website announced the news Tuesday afternoon in a short article posted to the site.

"Steve is a valued part of our legacy", Solov said, "And we will always be grateful for his contributions, and what he has helped us to accomplish".
