Bannon quits Breitbart News amid Trump book furor

13 Enero 2018

Steve Bannon, the former top strategic adviser to President Donald Trump, is leaving his powerful perch at Breitbart News. Instead, he went on the attack against Bannon, dubbing him "Sloppy Steve" and releasing a statement insisting that "Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my presidency" and that "when he was sacked, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind".

"Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" portrays the 45th president as surrounded by aides who believe he's unfit for the office he holds.

When he left the White House a year later, Bannon returned to Breitbart, which he had called a "platform for the alt-right".

Steve Bannon, the former White House strategist, is departing Breitbart News in the latest, humbling step from populist visionary to political outcast.

In his new year address last week, Mr Kim said he had a "nuclear button" that could target weapons at anywhere in the U.S., and Mr Trump responded that he had a much bigger and more powerful "nuclear button".

SiriusXM said in a statement after Breitbart's announcement that Bannon "will no longer host on SiriusXM" because "our programming agreement is with Breitbart News". In the book, Bannon reportedly called Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower in June 2016 "treasonous".

Bannon has worked as executive chairman at Breitbart since 2012.

After publication of the book last week, major Republican Party donor Rebekah Mercer, who owns a stake in Breitbart, issued a statement distancing herself from Bannon, saying she did not support his "recent actions and statements". Which Bannon has told people is a realistic possibility.

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

Despite this, the website has been popular among the right and the outlet strongly supported Trump as he ran for president.

In addition, John Sargent, CEO of Holt parent company Macmillan, has said that digital (e-book) sales have exceeded 250,000 copies, an astonishing number for a nonfiction book on current events.
