As Breitbart’s Charlie Spiering reports, Bannon jas returned to Breitbart News as Executive Chairman of Breitbart News “and chaired our evening editorial meeting”
As The Hill adds, Bannon reclaimed the title of Breitbart’s executive chairman and directed the outlet’s Friday editorial meeting, the website said in a statement on Friday. “The populist-nationalist movement got a lot stronger today,” said Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow.
“Breitbart gained an executive chairman with his finger on the pulse of the Trump agenda. As chairman, Bannon oversaw massive growth of the populist website before leaving to be chairman of Trump’s campaign.
Bannon never settled into his role as chief strategist in the White House, where he feuded bitterly with ideological rivals like Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, economic adviser Gary Cohn and national security adviser H.R. McMaster. Breitbart eagerly accepted Bannon back into the fold.
“Breitbart’s pace of global expansion will only accelerate with Steve back,” said Breitbart president Larry Solov. “The sky’s the limit.” While Breitbart has warned of war ‘against’ Trump – should he break from the policies upon which he was elected – former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon has spoken for the first time since being fired today.
In an interview with Bloomberg, Bannon said he was “going to war” for 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,” So, war it is!
