President Trump got an earful about his newly announced Afghanistan strategy on Monday night from none other than right-wing news site Breitbart, where ousted White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has returned to “crush the opposition.” Just minutes after Trump wrapped up his speech announcing a decision to extend U.S. military operations in Afghanistan, the site’s homepage was emblazoned with headlines critical of the president’s “flip-flop” that “reverses course” from his previously stated policy. Another headline appeared to take a subtle dig at the president with a zinger involving National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, with whom Bannon reportedly butted heads: “His McMaster’s voice: Is Trump’s Afghanistan policy different from Obama?” All eyes have been on Breitbart’s coverage of the president since Bannon returned to the helm on Friday following his departure from the White House. Upon returning, Bannon vowed to “crush the opposition” with his “weapons” at the news site, saying he’d “go to war” for the agenda that won Trump the presidency.
