The covers come after Trump issued a blistering statement aimed at Bannon Wednesday, saying he had “lost his mind” after leaving the White House and claiming he had “no influence” on Trump.

“Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my presidency,” Trump said in the statement. “When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind.”

Trump also blasted Bannon’s political abilities in the statement, saying he had “everything to do with the loss of a Senate seat in Alabama” and saying Bannon “doesn’t represent my base - he’s only in it for himself.”

Earlier Wednesday, excerpts from Michael Wolff’s new book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” were made public that quoted Bannon describing a 2016 meeting at Trump Tower between Donald Trump Jr.Donald (Don) John TrumpFox's Chris Wallace challenges Nadler on whether no more indictments means no 'criminal collusion' Nadler willing to go to Supreme Court to obtain Mueller report Five things we know about Dems' sprawling Trump probe MORE, two other top Trump campaign officials and a Russian lawyer as “treasonous” and “unpatriotic.”

"They're going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV," Bannon reportedly said.

Bannon left his role in President Trump’s White House in August and returned to his position as executive chairman at Breitbart.
