President Trump severed ties angrily with former adviser Steve Bannon on Wednesday in a stunningly public feud that erupted with the release of a book in which the self-styled populist criticizes the president’s son for a “treasonous” meeting with Russians during the 2016 campaign and predicts that the special counsel’s investigation will reach the president himself.
The president, described by staffers as “furious and disgusted,” said his former aide had “lost his mind.”
Mr. Bannon, a key campaign aide who served as White House strategist until last summer, is quoted by author Michael Wolff as describing an infamous June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower between Donald Trump Jr. and a group of Russians as “unpatriotic.” He said the younger Mr. Trump and others on the campaign team, who were seeking dirt on Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, should have alerted federal law enforcement about the Russian operatives.
