Former White House strategist Stephen Bannon stepping down from Breitbart news

Steve Bannon left the White House in August of previous year to a hero's return at Breitbart News, the far-right news site he helped turn into the leading voice of conservative politics in America.

In a statement, Bannon wrote that he was "proud of what the Breitbart team has accomplished in so short a period of time in building out a world-class news platform". Wolff's book, released on Friday, sent shockwaves through the Trump administration with fiery quotes about the Trump family and numerous claims about the president's intelligence and competence. "I am confident in everything that is in this book", he said. "To reiterate, those comments were not aimed at Don Jr".

Bannon left the White House last summer and returned to his position as executive chairman at Breitbart News, but reports indicated he had fallen out of favor with wealthy conservative backers as his comments in Wolff's book surfaced.

In addition, as if to rub salt in Trump's wounds, Bannon makes caustic remarks in the book about the president's ability to follow complex subjects.

Despite being packed with political dynamite, a new book on Donald Trump won't, on its own, dislodge a president who is totally unfit to hold such a vital office.

By contrast, Mr Bannon now seems to be striking a more conciliatory tone with the President, saying: "There was no collusion and the investigation is a witch hunt".
