Donald Trump Jr. has been relentless in his attacks on Steve Bannon after the former White House strategist accused him of treason.

In a tweet late Wednesday, Trump Jr. asserted that Bannon’s only contributions to the White House were “backstabbing, harassing, leaking, lying & undermining.”

“Steve had the honor of working in the White House & serving the country,” Trump Jr. wrote. “Unfortunately, he squandered that privilege & turned that opportunity into a nightmare of backstabbing, harassing, leaking, lying & undermining the President. Steve is not a strategist, he is an opportunist.”

Bannon stated in a new book by Michael Wolff that the 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Trump Jr., other campaign officials, and a Russian lawyer was “treasonous” and “unpatriotic.” President Donald Trump was allegedly “furious” over the attack on his family and released a scathing statement denouncing Bannon.

He “lost his mind” after he left the White House, Trump said.

Trump Jr. has continued to blast Bannon and defend himself and his father on Twitter throughout the day.

News aggregator Matt Drudge, a known critic of Bannon, even got in on the action, calling Bannon “schizophrenic.”
