According to Breitbart's White House correspondent, ex-White House strategist Steve Bannon is already back at Breitbart.

"Steve Bannon returned to Breitbart News as Executive Chairman of Breitbart News and chaired our evening editorial meeting," correspondent Charlie Spiering wrote on Twitter.

His reinstatement at Breitbart came mere hours after the White House announced his ouster.

In a post announcing his return, Breitbart noted that Bannon tendered his resignation at the White House on August 7, and that he had been employed by Donald Trump for nearly a year to the day by the date of his exit on August 18.
