Steve Bannon Slams Gary Cohn For Going Against Trump
Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon sat down with 60 Minutes for his first extensive interview following his exit from the White House. Reiterating his resolve to stand behind President Donald Trump, Bannon said that he will act as the president's "wing man" on the outside. He also shot down any rumors that he will break from President Trump's policies and vision for the United States.
Bannon returned to media powerhouse Breitbart to assume his role as an executive, and referred to himself as a "street fighter." When asked about his unconditional support for President Trump, Bannon pushed back at criticism over the president's reaction to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, and defended Trump's overall message. He also blasted white supremacists as having no place in society or politics and lashed out against those in the Trump administration who disagree with the president--calling out Gary Cohn by name--saying they have an obligation to resign.
