"Broken Promise: Trump ‘Doesn’t Wish to Pursue’ Clinton Email Charges," reads the lead story headline on Breitbart.com.
"I think when the President-elect, who's also the head of your party, tells you before he's even inaugurated that he doesn't wish to pursue these charges, it sends a very strong message, tone, and content" to other Republicans, former Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said Tuesday on MSNBC's Morning Joe.
Breitbart openly supported Trump during the campaign, with almost all stories and editorial being favorable to the Republican nominee.
Its former executive chairman, Steve Bannon, served as CEO of Trump's campaign and was recently named as a senior advisor in his White House.
Conway also told MSNBC the Clinton is still rebuilding her own image and indicated this was part of Trump helping the former first lady “heal.”
The new disconnect between Trump and Breitbart was quickly highlighted on social media:
