- In defending Trump, he also called for Gary Cohn to resign. "If you're going to break [with Trump], then resign ... I'm talking about Gary Cohn and some other people. If you don't like what he's doing and you don't agree with it then you should resign."
- The associate: "Steve puts Republicans on notice that they better support the president or there'll be consequences."
- Bannon's hot quote: Trump's predecessors left him Vietnam in Afghanistan, the Cuban Missile Crisis in North Korea and the Bay of Pigs in Venezuela.
