The Daily News’s competitor, the New York Post, also referenced the Trump-Bannon feud in its Thursday cover, depicting the two men in a scene from William Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar.”
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.Don TrumpHow Trump uses fundraising emails to remain undisputed leader of the GOP Donald Trump Jr. joins Cameo Book claims Trump family members were 'inappropriately' close with Secret Service agents MORE, two other top Trump campaign officials and a Russian lawyer as “treasonous” and “unpatriotic.”

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