Steve Bannon Apologizes For Controversial Comments About Donald Trump Jr

U.S. President Donald Trump's former strategist Steve Bannon on Sunday backed away from derogatory comments ascribed to him about Trump's son in a new book that sparked White House outrage and could threaten Bannon's influence as a would-be conservative power broker.

"My support is also unwavering for the president and his agenda", Mr. Bannon said in the statement. Now cut off from political and financial supporters, the alt-right media firebrand called the Trump scion a "patriot" and said he regretted that his delay in responding to "inaccurate reporting" had diverted attention from the president's first-year accomplishments.

Publishers of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House released the book early, ignoring threats of a legal challenge from the president's lawyers to prevent its publication.

He then said Wolff "doesn't know me at all" and did not interview him for the book, as Wolff has claimed.

There is so much demand for the new book critical of US President Donald Trump that stores can't keep up. Bannon said Manafort was "a seasoned campaign professional with experience and knowledge of how the Russians operate".

"To reiterate, those comments were not aimed at Don Jr.", Bannon said.

Bannon was quoted as saying he was certain Trump Jr would have taken the Russians who took part in the meeting to meet his father.

Bannon explained in his statement that his averse reaction to the meeting stemmed from his experience in the Navy, explaining that he was "stationed aboard a destroyer whose main mission was to hunt Soviet submarines to my time at the Pentagon during the Reagan years, when our focus was the defeat of 'the evil empire'". He has started referring to former ally Bannon as "Sloppy Steve", and on Saturday repeated his lament that the nation's libel laws are too weak.
