Steve Bannon is stepping down from Breitbart News.
Bannon and Breitbart will work together on a smooth and orderly transition.
Bannon said, “I’m proud of what the Breitbart team has accomplished in so short a period of time in building out a world-class news platform.”
According to Breitbart CEO Larry Solov, “Steve is a valued part of our legacy, and we will always be grateful for his contributions, and what he has helped us to accomplish.”
Bannon’s decision comes on the heels of a very public fissure between Bannon and President Trump following quotes from Bannon in Michael Wolff‘s new book about the President, his family, the campaign, etc.
