Bannon Destroys Liberal Narrative
The unexpected departure of Steve Bannon from the White House this week has drawn cheers from the left and the mainstream media — but they might be celebrating too soon.
Bannon’s departure has been painted as a victory against the controversial strategist. However, his plans for the immediate future should send chills down the backs of any opponent of Donald Trump.
Far from indicating a split between Trump and Bannon — the dominant media narrative — Bannon said his departure from the White House made his top priority possible.
The right-leaning mogul is back at what he does best, and his plans were summarized with just five words: “Going to war for Trump.”
“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 announced to Bloomberg on Friday.
That statement came just hours after it was revealed that Bannon had resigned as an official member of Trump’s advisory team.
