Steve Bannon said Sunday he “regrets” his comments made to author Michael Wolff in his explosive book “Fire and Fury” that has shaken the Trump White House.
“My support is also unwavering for the president and his agenda,” Bannon said in a statement, first reported by Axios, the political news website. NBC News later confirmed the statement.
In Wolff’s book, which went on sale Friday, Bannon said the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower between the president’s eldest son and a Russian lawyer was “treasonous” and “unpatriotic.”
Wolff also quoted Bannon as saying: “They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV.'”
