Trump’s controversial and ideological advisor has once again put himself at the head of ‘Breitbart News’, a controversial web portal of ultra-right and conservative ideas. “Knowing what I know, we’re going to use that machine,” he told CNN after leaving his post at the White House. It has not yet been clear whether he has resigned or been fired by Trump.
Steve Bannon, the top strategist of US President Donald Trump, has regained his previous position at the head of the ultraconservative web “Breitbart News” after leaving the White House on Friday, the portal said in a statement.
“I’m very excited, I’m free now, I’ve got my hands on my weapons again.” Someone said, ‘Here comes Bannon, the barbarian,’ “he said after attending an editorial meeting on the website.
“I’m going to do away with the opposition, there’s no doubt about it. I’ve built a big machine in ‘Breitbart’ and now I’m back in. Knowing what I know, we’re going to use that machine,” he added.
Breitbart’s editor-in-chief, Alex Marlow, has welcomed Bannon and indicated that the website “has won a director who has a finger on the pulse of Trump’s political agenda.”
The nature of Bannon’s exit has not yet been clarified. According to sources close to the decision, it was immediately dismissed. However, other sources close to the adviser have informed ABC News that Bannon has decided to resign.
