Steve Bannon on Friday resigned as White House chief strategist and immediately returned to Breitbart News where he is executive chairman.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the departure, effective Friday, was “mutually agreed” to by Bannon and Chief of Staff John Kelly.
“We are grateful for his service and wish him the best,” said White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.
On Friday evening, in the top story on its homepage, Breitbart announced Bannon’s return to the media company to again serve as executive chairman.
“‘Populist Hero’ Stephen K. Bannon Returns Home to Breitbart,” reads the headline.
