Breitbart confirmed the former White House chief strategist’s departure on Tuesday on their website. 

“I’m proud of what the Breitbart team has accomplished in so short a period of time in building out a world-class news platform,” Bannon said.

The New York Times reported that Bannon was forced out by billionaire Breitbart investor Rebekah Mercer, who earlier this month cut ties with the former White House chief strategist.

Trump belatedly apologized for his remarks in the book on Sunday, but the White House rejected his apology.
