Steve Bannon Returns to Breitbart News After White House Exit

WASHINGTON — Steve Bannon returned to Breitbart News on Friday, after he was ousted as President Donald Trump’s chief strategist.

Charlie Spiering, the White House correspondent for Breitbart, tweeted that Bannon returned as executive chairman and chaired their evening editorial meeting.

Breitbart also ran a story on Bannon’s return.

“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.”

The move had been widely expected. Breitbart already has been taking aim at some of Trump’s advisers with whom Bannon clashed, including the president’s economic adviser Gary Cohn. Cohn, Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump and others are viewed as moderates and even Democrats by Bannon, determined to move Trump’s agenda away from the kind of populism and nationalism he favors.

Earlier on Friday, Bannon told Joshua Green of Bloomberg News that “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 served as executive chairman of Breitbart since shortly after founder Andrew Breitbart’s death in 2012. Trump tapped him as his campaign chief executive in August, 2016.

“The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over,” Bannon told the Weekly Standard, insisting that his departure was voluntary and was designed to coincide with the anniversary of him joining the campaign.
