Time - In a pair of interviews, President Donald Trump gave a skewed account of auto jobs and health care under his watch and flatly contradicted himself on how long he's known his right-hand strategist, Steve Bannon. "Many years," Trump said of their relationship back in August, when he made Bannon his campaign chief. "I didn't know him" at the time, Trump told the New York Post on Tuesday. Trump got it right the first time.
Bannon was far from a stranger when he came on board near the start of the general election campaign against Democrat Hillary Clinton. Trump and Bannon had known each other for five years when the Republican candidate, a month after accepting the nomination, hired the Breitbart executive as his campaign CEO.
