President Donald J. Trump told reporters at a Monday afternoon White House press conference he likes and respects his former chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon, who has launched an all-out war on the Republican establishment.

The remarks came after a question from One America News Network Chief White House correspondent Trey Vingst: Do you support the plan by people previously served in your administration, such as Steve Bannon, to primary Republican candidates in the 2018 elections–who do not support your agenda?

Trump who was standing with Senate Majority Leader A. Mitchell McConnell (R.-Ky.), one of the men Bannon has named as the reason why the president’s agenda has stalled on Capitol Hill.

“I have a very good relationship, as you know, with Steve Bannon, he’s been a friend of mine for a very long time,” the president said. “I like Steve a lot.”

Without mentioning them by name, the president spoke up for the incumbent GOP senators against whom Bannon is organizing primary opponents.

“Steve is doing what Steve thinks is the right thing,” he said. “Some of the people he is looking at–I am going to see if we can talk him out that–because frankly, they are great people.”
