Breitbart News still behind Bannon despite backlash

Breitbart News still behind Bannon despite backlash

This comes as a huge blow to Bannon, who has said publicly that, if he were ever to run for president, he would rely on the financial support of the Mercer family. "I support President Trump and the platform upon which he was elected", the statement read.

Karl Rove joined Dana Perino on "The Daily Briefing" to react to President Trump's apparent break with Steve Bannon.

Coming back to Bush's tweet, he was one of the many republicans who distanced themselves from Trump's former campaign CEO following the president's condemnation of Bannon's opinion about him and his family in the book. Even after his controversial departure from the White House over the summer, Bannon had been in support of Trump, though that ended on Wednesday with the release of excerpts of an upcoming book about the president's campaign and administration.

Klavan argued that Trump's statement on Bannon yesterday - saying that he "lost his mind" and that he played little to no role in Trump's victory - shows that Trump has had it with the Breitbart boss.

A Bannon spokesperson declined to comment.

Bannon speaks at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Maryland in February 2017. If you look at what Steve Bannon is doing, if you look at Breitbart News, it is the only news site in the world which truly endorses the ['Make America Great Again"] agenda, and it doesn't need to be "either/or, ' " he told the BBC.

Mr Bannon's clout as a conservative-populist "anti-establishment" kingmaker was already in question because of his support of Ala-bama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who lost to a Democrat, Mr Doug Jones, in last month's special election.

After leaving the White House, Bannon reportedly spent five days in Long Island meeting with the Mercers.
