Donald Trump made one of his biggest mistakes in hiring a loose cannon like Steve Bannon. Since day one, the guy did nothing but make waves within the parties, but Trump continued to support him because of his alt-right/Breitbart history.
Now, Trump is starting to see exactly what the entire nation was talking about when they promised his he would rue the day he brought a white supremacist into his administration.
Wednesday morning, statements released from author Michael Wolff’s new book hit the media. In the book, Bannon issues attacks on Kushner and Don Jr. over their meeting with a Russian lawyer. He called that meeting “treasonous.”
The book states:
‘The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor – with no lawyers. They didn’t have any lawyers. Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad shit, and I happen to think it’s all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately.’
Now, the White House has released a statement about Bannon’s attack, and it’s not pretty:
“When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind. Steve was rarely in a one-on-one meeting with me and only pretends to have had influence to fool a few people with no access and no clue, whom he helped write phony books. Steve pretends to be at war with the media, which he calls the opposition party, yet he spent his time at the White House leaking false information to the media to make himself seem far more important than he was.”
