Trump torches Steve Bannon after disparaging book excerpts: Steve 'not only lost his job, he lost his mind'
(Worthy News) - President Trump slammed his former chief strategist just hours after excerpts of a forthcoming book about the presidency revealed Steve Bannon had made disparaging comments about Trump's family and personal habits.
"Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my presidency. When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind," Trump said in a statement on Wednesday. "Steve was a staffer who worked for me after I had already won the nomination by defeating seventeen candidates, often described as the most talented field ever assembled in the Republican party."
Trump said Bannon "is learning that winning isn’t as easy as I make it look," referring to Bannon's failed efforts to promote Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore, whose campaign imploded late last year amid allegations of sexual misconduct involving teenagers.
