During a brief spray with the White House press pool, President Trump offered a direct statement about his feud with his former strategist Steve Bannon.
As the squabble between Trump and Bannon heats up, the president was asked during an immigration reform meeting about whether Bannon “betrayed” him with his comments. Even though Bannon declined to say much about the fight during Breitbart’s radio show last night, it seems Trump noticed the part where Bannon said he was still behind #MAGA.
“He called me a great man last night so, you know, he obviously changed his tune pretty quick,” said Trump. When asked about how much contact he has with his former campaign CEO, Trump said “I don’t talk to him.”
Interestingly, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said yesterday that Trump and Bannon last spoke to each other about a month ago.
