Bannon speaks: "I'm going to war for Trump against his opponents,"

Stephen Bannon said in his first public remarks since his ouster as White House chief strategist that he’ll be “going to war” for President Donald Trump, vowing to intensify from the outside the fight he has waged against opponents of his brand of populist conservatism.

“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 said Friday in an interview with Bloomberg News hours after his departure was announced by the administration.

Bannon left the White House Friday, ending a controversial tenure as the administration is engulfed in a storm over the president’s remarks on violence in Virginia. Bannon’s departure was agreed on mutually with new White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said.

His exit caps a tumultuous four weeks in which a slew of senior officials have announced their departures, including the former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus, former press secretary Sean Spicer and former communications director Anthony Scaramucci, who was hired and fired within the space of 11 days.


It's my first time posting an article, so I apologize if I messed something up.

It will be interesting to see how the White House frames this

It's been reported that Bannon resigned, and wasn't fired.

It's possible that the WH will frame this as "We really wanted Bannon to stay, but he was ready to go back to Breitbart."

That way, Breitbart supporters don't turn on Trump.

I'm going to go buy a nice bottle of whiskey

And not open it tonight. I'm waiting.

I'm going to wait to open it until the night Trump leaves office. Whether that be from stepping down, or the night he loses reelection in 2020.

Then, I'll crack it open, pour a little, and sip at it while I watch the news and smile.

Trump hits new low in Rasmussen

Fell to 38% today, and Rasmussen is considered to be a fairly conservative poll.
