If Capitol Hill Republicans thought they were finally rid of a toxic influence in President Donald Trump’s White House, Steve Bannon has news for them: this means war.
While the current head of Breitbart News tweeted out “#War” after the news was announced that Bannon was out, the war will not be with Trump or the White House. Instead, the war will be with those who have opposed Trump.
“If there’s any confusion out there, let me clear it up: I’m 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 biographer Joshua Green.
