Bannon's remarks about the Russian Federation investigation and the president's children made headlines last week amid heightened interest in Michael Wolff's book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

In a statement, Bannon wrote that he was "proud of what the Breitbart team has accomplished in so short a period of time in building out a world-class news platform".

Bannon had served as Breitbart's executive chairman since 2012.

There is, however, enough explosive force in Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury" to demolish another pernicious threat to American democracy - the career of right-wing provocateur Steve Bannon.

The author of a tell-all book on the Trump administration on Tuesday said the U.S. president knows which people around him are Jewish in a "creepy" way.

Asked if Trump was also an anti-Semite, Wolff did not answer directly.

Ubisoft said that the expansion is a "vast story" but didn't provide any indication of its actual length in terms of hours. Some New Game+ modes may allow players to carry over items or abilities from their initial playthroughs.

Wolff says the comments were "directed directly at Don. Jr".

However, Bannon didn't respond until Sunday when he tried to walk back some of the comments without officially apologizing.

"My family and I have not communicated with Steve Bannon in many months and have provided no financial support to his political agenda, nor do we support his recent actions and statements", Mercer said.

Mr Bannon's comments were just a portion of the incendiary contents of recently published book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, which paints a scathing picture of the Trump administration, based on many first-hand accounts and interviews.

Bannon had struggled to claw back his remarks after the book was published and the president publicly lashed out at his former adviser.

Bannon and Breitbart will work together on a smooth and orderly transition, the news site added.
