Steve Bannon calls himself 'a street fighter' in '60 Minutes' interview

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said in CBS interview that top Trump economic advisor Gary Cohn should have resigned after disagreeing with the president's reaction to violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Despite his role as White House economic adviser, Cohn is seen as an unusual choice because he is not an academic economist unlike recent chairmen, according to a Washington Examiner report. As the former White House chief strategist put it to Charlie Rose in a new interview, "I'm a street fighter".

Bannon goes on to add that he spoke last and told Trump he had a "100 percent" chance of winning as long as he stuck to his core message and ignored the "Access Hollywood" stuff as much as possible.

"I'm talking- obviously, about Gary Cohn - and some other people". Breitbart has portrayed Cohn as a "globalist" on issues like trade, a contrast to Bannon's protectionist and adversarial approach to countries like China.

Rush Limbaugh will now evacuate days after questioning legitimacy of Irma
According to Limbaugh, who lives in Palm Beach County , the hurricane hype is about perpetuating a climate change "agenda." . But millions of people rely on him for their news and he misled them , with potentially lethal consequences.

"I think that's why Donald Trump and I get along so well".

Christie's spokesman Brian Murray said Friday that Christie had been offered several positions in the Trump administration.

Steve Bannon criticized the Catholic Church's support for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Bannon had no patience for members of the Trump administration who spoke out against the president's handling of that matter, or of any other. The Trump surrogate is set to appear on CBS's "60 Minutes" Sunday in his first interview since leaving the White House last month, and teaser clips of the conversation were just released.

CNN report says Joe Paterno knew of prior Sandusky abuse claims
Last year, unsealed court records revealed that one accuser said he told Paterno about locker room abuse in 1976. A CNN source obtained a one-page Pennsylvania state police report that lays out an account from Mike McQueary .

"You know why? Because [they have been] unable to really, to come to grips with the problems in the church, they need illegal aliens", said Bannon.

Asked to give an example of how they were "trying to nullify the 2016 election", Bannon recalled an early meeting at Trump Tower. And on that day, that's the first time and only time he ever got upset with me.

Bannon said that while aides can disagree with the president in private, they should resign if if they were going to publicly break with him. Rose asked, to which Bannon replied, "Absolutely". And I told him why. But Mr. Trump, whose most cutting insult is to pretend someone does not exist or that he barely knows them, virtually ignored him. Bannon is the consummate outsider, far more comfortable charging the gates than defending them.

Fed Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer submits resignation for "personal reasons"
Mr Fischer was appointed by former President Barack Obama in 2014 and his term would normally have ended in June 2018. He cited "personal reasons" in a resignation letter Wednesday to Trump for leaving on or around October 13.
