Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said he will be President Donald Trump’s “wingman” outside of the administration in an interview Thursday.

“I’m going to be his wingman outside for the entire time,” Bannon told CBS’s “60 Minutes.”

Bannon said that he is a “street fighter” and that he thinks that’s why he gets along with Trump so well.


Bannon left the White House in August to return to Breitbart News. When asked if Breitbart would attack Trump, Bannon said they would not. “No, our purpose is to support Donald Trump,” he said.

“And destroy his enemies?” the host asked. “To make sure his enemies know that there’s no free shot on goal,” Bannon responded.

This was Bannon’s first on camera interview since his August 7th resignation from the White House.
