The former chief strategist to US President Donald Trump has vowed to "go to war" for the president’s agenda after being sacked from office، according to media reports.
Steve Bannon told Bloomberg in an interview on Friday that he is prepared to fight the same fights، just from outside the White House.
"If there's any confusion out there، let me clear it up: I'm leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents — on Capitol Hill، in the media، and in corporate America،" Bannon said.
On Friday، Trump's Press Secretary Sarah Sanders issued a statement saying، "White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Steve Bannon have mutually agreed today would be Steve's last day."
“We are grateful for his service and wish him the best،” Sanders stated.
Bannon’s expulsion is said to have been resulted from an interview that infuriated the US president last week in which had claimed to have the power to fire officials at the State Department and contradicted Trump on North Korea.
