President Trump bashes his former chief strategist Steve Bannon after the Breitbart chairman made damaging statements about the president.
In an official White House statement Wednesday, President Trump said Bannon lost his job and then lost his mind.
He said Bannon was fully responsible for the Senate loss in Alabama, adding he does not represent his base and he’s only in it for himself.
The president said Bannon leaked White House intel to make himself seem more important than he was.
Bannon criticized the president, his family, and the Russia probe during interviews for a new book.
