US President Donald Trump’s former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, says his support for his former boss is “unwavering” despite the recent fallout between the tw.
Bannon came under fire from Trump after accusing his son, Donald Jr., of “treason” for meeting a Russian lawyer during the heat of the 2016 US presidential election.
The firebrand journalist, who lost many of his Republican endorsements over the damaging remarks, finally broke his silence on Sunday and expressed “regret” for his remarks.
“Donald Trump, Jr. is both a patriot and a good man. He has been relentless in his advocacy for his father and the agenda that has helped turn our country around,” Bannon said in a statement.
“My support is also unwavering for the president and his agenda,” said Bannon, who returned to his work as the head of the far-right news outlet Breitbart News after being fired from the White House last year.
