Trump vs Bannon

Stuff reports:

US President Donald Trump is blasting his former chief strategist ahead of the release of a new, unflattering book.

Trump says in the statement that when Bannon was fired, “he not only lost his job, he lost his mind”.

“Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my presidency,” Trump said. “Steve doesn’t represent my base – he’s only in it for himself.”

So of Trump’s two campaign chairs, one is indicted for money laundering and the other he now labels as mad. What does that say about the judgement of the person who hired them?

Bannon slammed Donald Trump Jr, Jared Kushner (US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and a close campaign and White House adviser) and Paul Manafort (his campaign chairman at the time of the meeting who has been indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller).

“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,” Bannon continued, according to The Guardian. “Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad s…, and happen to think it’s all of that, you should have called the immediately.”

Bannon is correct that calling the was the prudent course of action.
