Bannon apologizes for comments about Trump family in new book

20 Enero 2018

In an effort to try to fix the damage from the book, Bannon said his "treasonous" comment was directed at a former Trump campaign manager, Paul Manafort, who also attended the meeting at Trump Tower.

The new book by Michael Wolff provides insight into the inner-workings of the Trump presidency and portrays an incompetent President in a confused White House. In the book, Bannon described Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner's meeting with a Russian lawyer as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".

The author of a new book about the White House is contradicting Steve Bannon's explanation of comments that angered President Donald Trump.

Bannon's statement to the Times on Sunday came hours after Stephen Miller, another former Trump White House adviser, was critical of Bannon in an appearance on CNN.

"I regret that my delay in responding to the inaccurate reporting regarding Don Jr has diverted attention from the president's historical accomplishments in the first year of his presidency", Bannon said in the statement, which was first obtained by the news site Axios.

Leaders of the publishing company said they have no intention of honoring the cease-and-desist order that President Donald Trump's lawyer fired off to derail publication of the book that has roiled Washington and infuriated the commander in chief and his supporters.

He also said that the investigation by Robert Mueller would look into money laundering that he said was connected with those in the campaign.

Breitbart published a statement saying it and Mr Bannon would "work together on a smooth and orderly transition".

In addition, as if to rub salt in Trump's wounds, Bannon makes caustic remarks in the book about the president's ability to follow complex subjects. Fortunately, they were much more composed when discussing the prospect of Steve Bannon joining the network. "I just don't think there's any way back".

If you're wondering where Steve Bannon might land, you can cross off Fox News from your list. The president's attorney's sent a cease and desist letter to Bannon and a public rift was created when the president released harsh comments criticizing his chief strategist.
