Trump slams Bannon after criticism, says ex-chief strategist ‘lost his mind

“It’s probably safe to say the self-professed mastermind behind President Trump’s election won’t be back in 2020.

Trump issued a blistering, four-paragraph take-down of Steve Bannon Wednesday, hours after it was reported that Bannon called Donald Trump Jr. “treasonous” for meeting with Russian operatives during the campaign.

“Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my presidency,” Trump wrote. “When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind. Steve was a staffer who worked for me after I had already won the nomination by defeating seventeen candidates, often described as the most talented field ever assembled in the Republican party.”

“Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my presidency.”

The statement came after excerpts of a forthcoming book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” by author Michael Wolff surfaced Wednesday. In the book, Bannon slams the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., son-in-law Jared Kushner and campaign chairman Paul Manafort and calls their infamous meeting with a Russian lawyer during the campaign “treasonous” and “unpatriotic.”
