Trump Hits ‘Sloppy Steve Bannon’ Again: ‘The Mercer Family Recently Dumped the Leaker’

Last night, President Donald Trump came up with a new nickname for his former chief strategist. In the wake of Steve Bannon’s explosive and provocative comments in Michael Wolff’s new White House tell-all, Trump took to Twitter to label the Breitbart chief “Sloppy Steve.”

And, as predicted, the president has continued to utilize that new name.

Regarding Trump’s comments about how the “Mercer Family recently dumped” Bannon, the president is referencing the fact that Bannon’s longtime financial backer Rebekah Mercer has publicly rebuked the Breitbart chairman following the publication of his controversial remarks. It has also been reported that the Mercers, along with members of the Breitbart board, are currently debating whether to oust Bannon over his comments.
