Former White House top strategist Steve Bannon on Sunday appeared to try to bury the hatchet in his ongoing feud with President Trump that erupted over recent comments he made in an explosive new book, saying his support for the president is "unwavering".
"What did we have?"
Stephen Bannon, President Donald Trump's chief strategist, has faced criticism for his background overseeing Breitbart News, with Democrats touting numerous racially tinged and misogynistic headlines that went up under his watch.

That shuffling at the top has prompted repeated delays in the film's production, which has been in active development since 2014. In addition, he's a ladies man and proud Louisianan who is an expert in card-throwing and the use of a bo staff.
He most recently came under fire over remarks attributed to him in a new book.
Despite the setback, Bannon has told confidants that he believes Trump, after a cooling-off period, will again seek his counsel, noting that the president often maintains contact with aides he has fired.
He tried to make up for his Judas-like betrayal with a contrite statement calling Don Jr. a "patriot and a good man".
Nuclear Deal with Iran Might Go Sour Due to Washington
People rally in support of Iranian anti-government protests in Los Angeles on Saturday. US President Donald Trump wants to amend the deal or withdraw from it.
The New York Times said Bannon's departure was forced by onetime financial patron, Rebekah Mercer. In response to Bannon's having called a June 2016 meeting between Trump campaign officials and Russians "treasonous" and "unpatriotic", Trump said in a statement that his former colleague had "lost his mind". "He has been relentless in his advocacy for his father and the agenda that has helped turn our country around", Bannon said. He was pushed out after less than eight months after numerous conflicts with Ivanka Trump, the president's elder daughter, and Jared Kushner, her husband and Mr. Trump's senior adviser. For months, Trump allowed Bannon to conduct open war from inside the White House against established party leaders, incumbent lawmakers and other heavyweights Bannon believed were undermining Trump's populist revolution.
