Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon has resigned from his position as head of the far-right-wing news outlet Breitbart News, which has been described as an online haven for white nationalists and frequently publishes white nationalist propaganda. His departure from Breitbart comes after Bannon and President Trump had a public falling out over Bannon’s quotes in the recently released book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.” In the book, Bannon is quoted as accusing Donald Trump Jr. of “treason,” predicting Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation will find evidence of money laundering, and portraying his former boss as wholly unprepared for the presidency. Following the publication of the book, Bannon lost public support from many of his supporters, including billionaire backer Rebekah Mercer.
