It has been two months since Stephen K. Bannon back to Breitbart News after he was shunted from the White House. The ex-chief strategist has announced “a season of war” on the Republicans establishment.
According to the several associated of both of them, Trump and Bannon remained in constant contact, they even have conversation often many multiples time in a week. President Donald Trump and Bannon remain estranged.
President recently asked during a recent chat with Fox News personality Sean Hannity, “Is Steve still with me?”
Bannon and Trump’s partnership is described as affection with tension by the nine aides including confidants and friends. But for now, their partnership is beneficial for both of them.
Ann Coulter the conservative commentator wrote in an email, “It’s better for Bannon because he doesn’t have to waste time jockeying for position in a nepotistic White House.” Coulter said, “And it’s better for Trump precisely because Bannon doesn’t have to tiptoe around Trump’s ‘first among equals’ relatives, but can use Breitbart to forcefully remind Trump of the issues he ran on.”
President Trump told the reporters, “I like Steve a lot. Steve is doing what Steve thinks is the right thing. Some of the people that he may be looking at, I’m going to see if we talk him out of that, because, frankly, they’re great people.”
The chairman of Great America PAC which is basically a pro-Trump group, Strategist Ed Rollins said, “The president can say, ‘Well, that’s Bannon being Bannon,’ as opposed to, ‘That’s my chief strategist down the hall from me.’ The president has a responsibility of running the government. Bannon is free to throw rocks against the windows, which is sometimes more fun.”
McConnell who was standing beside U.S. President at the news conference on Monday said, “You have tonominate people who can actually win, because winners make policy and losers go home.”
