Three months ago, Breitbart News — a conservative web publication once run by Trump campaign CEO Steve Bannon — criticized Democratic nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonPoll: More Republican voters think party is more united than Democratic voters Whoopi Goldberg presses Sanders: 'Why are you still in the race?' Poll: Biden holds slight edge on Trump in Wisconsin MORE for also calling Peña "our friend." 
 
"‘Our friend,’ says Clinton about Mexican president with campaign allegedly financed by cartels," read the headline.
 
The June 3 article was written by Ildefonso Ortiz and highlights accusations against Peña by some in the Mexican media of taking bribes from Mexican drug cartels while not being effective against crime and violence in his country. 
 
Breitbart's live coverage of Trump's Mexico visit mentioned that he referred to Peña as a friend.
 
Bannon, 62, left Breitbart earlier this month to run the Trump campaign along with GOP pollster Kellyanne Conway, who effectively replaced Steve Manafort as campaign manager.
