The feud between President Trump and Steve Bannon is reaching a fever pitch.
Trump fired off a late night tweet attacking author Michael Wolff and called his former White House strategist “Sloppy Steve”.
“I authorized Zero access to White House (actually turned him down many times) for author of phony book! I never spoke to him for book. Full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don’t exist.

Rumors are swirling Breitbart owners are debating ousting Steve Bannon amid an explosive feud with President Trump.
The Drudge Report currently has a bright red scathing headline linking to a Wall Street Journal article asking if Bannon is out at Breitbart:
As previously reported, the rift between President Trump and former White House strategist Steve Bannon has been in steady escalation this week. The former White House strategist Steve Bannon claimed that Don Trump Jr will “crack […] like an egg” under pressure from the erroneous Russia investigations. Continuing, Bannon went as far as to call Trump Jr’s agreement to meet with a Russian attorney “treasonous”.
“Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad s***, and I happen to think it’s all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately.”
Bannon then went on to double down on his distaste for Jared Kushner and stated to author Michael Wolff:
“You realize where this is going,” Bannon told Wolff. “This is all about money laundering. Mueller chose (senior prosecutor Andrew) Weissmann first and he is a money-laundering guy. Their path to f—ing Trump goes right through Paul Manafort, Don Jr and Jared Kushner … It’s as plain as a hair on your face.”
“It goes through Deutsche Bank and all the Kushner s–t. The Kushner s–t is greasy. They’re going to go right through that. They’re going to roll those two guys up and say play me or trade me,”
On the heels of Mr. Bannon’s claims, President Trump punched back saying that the former strategist has “lost his mind”, that he “only pretends to have influence”, and that Bannon had “very little to do with our historic victory.”
