Wednesday saw a political relationship explode. President Trump and his former chief strategist Steve Bannon’s relationship may never be the same. In an Upcoming Book by Michael Wolff, called Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, Bannon, according to The Hill, calls the now infamous meeting between Donald Trump, Jr., other campaign staff, and a Russian lawyer “treasonous” and “unpatriotic.” He is also quoted as saying, “They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV.” Bannon also gave the impression that he believed President Trump met with the Russians after Donald Trump Junior’s meeting.
The president issued a blistering response to Bannon in a statement. “Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my presidency,” Trump said. “When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind.” Trump added, “Steve was rarely in a one-on-one meeting with me and only pretends to have had influence to fool a few people with no access and no clue, whom he helped write phony books.” The question that is now before us: Is Steve Bannon Telling the truth in the upcoming book?
