Steve Bannon will be a tough and smart new voice at @BreitbartNews... maybe even better than ever before, Trump tweeted. Fake News needs the competition!
Bannon returned to work late Friday as executive chairman at Breitbart News and chaired its evening editorial meeting Friday, the site said.
The former adviser, who had a rocky 12-month tenure with Trump, said he plans to go to war for the president in his outside role.
If theres any confusion out there, let me clear it up: Im leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents -- on Capitol Hill, in the media, and in corporate America, Bannon told Bloomberg on Friday.
Earlier Saturday, the president made his first public comments about Bannons departure from the White House.
I want to thank Steve Bannon for his service, Trump tweeted Saturday morning. He came to the campaign during my run against Crooked Hillary Clinton -- it was great! Thanks S.(continued)

He could have been a tough voice for the Trump presidency but the swamp would not let it be and President Trump could not see that.
Trump is no longer his own man.
Trump is now owned by the Progressive wing of the Republican Party.
It is now impossible to Make America Great Again.
The Trump presidency is toast.A one term presidency.
Obama wins and there will be no dismantling of the socialist hegemon Obama established. Trump is now a placeholder president.America is still on the path of racial and ethnic nationalsm and subsequent Balkanization, a weak nation, as Bannon had said.
Now the siege perilous of Bannon is empty.America has no hope,for now we must chose between the traduced ballot box or the bullet box.The will of the American electorate has been traduced.
> The war is won in the media. For the last 8 months we have lost that war badly. <
Very true! In my opinion, you’ve identified the number #1 problem facing Trump today. But I still don’t get it. Now that Bannon is out, will he somehow be able to limit the damage being done by CNN, ABC, etc.?
Of course not. Anyone who listens to CNN will not listen to what Bannon has to say. Bannon will be able to rally the right, I suppose. But we are already rallied.
My best guess is that Bannon was let go simply because he upset someone in the White House. Who he upset is the big question.
When Trump hired Bannon, I said “Wow. This is great.” Now Bannon is out. I cannot bring myself to say “Wow. This is great.” I just doesn’t make sense. Something is wrong here.
Yeah.....give us the House you will see.....give us the Senate and now we will fix it......We cannot fix it unless we have the , House, Senate and the Presidency......Wait, we are hamstrung unless we have the House, the Senate, the Presidency and the USSC and all the courts of the land then all will be good!!
Sorry my FRiend but what you will have is the Uniparty running everything and not much change then what you have now. They would be too damn afraid to act just like now because the leaders are feckless cowards.
Elections will not fix what is broke with America. It needs to be weeded and re-sowed.
Not until he mans up and gets rid of McMaster who has gutted his supporters in his administration and replaced them with leftists. President Trump either wanted it this way or has been blind sided or is not the wheeler dealer 4D chess player his supporters thought he was.
Bannon is a smart guy and did not have to go to DC to find out how screwed up it was.
He went there to support President Trump and was summarily executed by McMaster while President Trump ate popcorn on a $2.00 ticket. Shameful.
This thread badly needs your enlightenment. The mass hysteria and misinformation is rampant.
Please don’t fall into the pond of despair. It’s the Left that wants you to believe there’s no hope, that all things are fated to happen because everything about man is fully caused and determined by natural or cosmic forces. This superstitious pagan view is not the radically unique Christian concept of man as the created Image Bearer of God held by the founders of our Constitutional Republic. In that view man has free will, meaning he can choose to fall into hopeless despair or choose to take action to change things for the better as many Freepers strive to do.
What the Left and their corrupt Rhino counterparts most fear is Truth because they are rotten things that can only thrive in the dark. This being so, the Light of Truth must be unleashed upon the rot. So rather than fatalistic despair why don’t you choose to become a Truth Warrior as many Americans at every level of society are committed to to being? For starters, watch and be inspired by the superb investigative report “The Fight for Charlottesville: The Left Wing War on the Freedom of Speech” produced by One America’s News:
I hope so. Faux News has become CNN Lite.
You forgot your sarc tag or you are delusional.
This is GREAT news. A BRILLIANT move by Trump and Bannon.
Just remember .... Ya don’t know, what ya don’t know, but Trump does.
“Trump is no longer his own man”
Defeatism only serves our enemies.
“For the last 8 months we have lost that war badly”
HUH? What planet are you from? Trump has defeated the media at every turn.
Russia meme ... DEAD!
CNN is now the face of FAKE NEWS.
Trump keeps creating jobs, cutting waste, deregulating, appointing conservative judges, undoing Obama’s executive orders, revitalizing America’s energy industry, protecting the border and deporting illegals, reestablishing America’s position in the world as a superpower, reestablishing the respect we deserve from the rest of the world, shall I go on?
Can you explain Mcmaster
Why does he still have a job
On how to win what? He’ll be preaching to the choir no? I haven’t been following the news until recently so have missed out on the nuances but whatever has been happening, according to the comments here, not much of it has been good.
Does posting the same thing make it stronger?
It’s not whether Bannon continues to support Trump, it’s whether Trump supports Bannon in the future. Will they have close political relationship?
“My best guess is that Bannon was let go simply because he upset someone in the White House.”
If that’s true, I’m going with “Javanka” and the libs they brought in.
But what I think happened is that when DJT and crew went to NJ for working vacation, Bannon stayed behind and oversaw the “new HVAC” project, i.e., sweeping the Oval Office for Obama’s surveillance equipment.
Before that, DJT and Bannon had a sit-down and carefully planned Bannon’s “firing”. They both know he can be a more effective honey badger by working on the outside.
At least that’s a good story and COULD be true.
Unfortunately, this sounds like Trump realizing he has stepped on a landmine and trying to put out the fire on the right:
Fake News = Malignant Media.
I’ve had in the back of my mind that Bannon’s strong voice has been less effective from within the WH. Now that he’s out of the administration, he can frame the media discussion and expose the most extreme of the anti-Trump media.
