Bannon beat Trump in Alabama (kind of)

By Callum Borchers

Roy Moore trounced Sen. Luther Strange in a Republican primary runoff for Alabama’s available Senate seat on Tuesday. Put another way, Stephen K. Bannon’s candidate won, and President Trump’s lost.

This wasn’t the first time Bannon and Trump have clashed since the president’s former chief strategist left the White House and returned to the helm of Breitbart News last month. Most notably, Breitbart hammered Trump for ordering an increase of U.S. troops in Afghanistan, which the site considered a betrayal of the noninterventionist policy on which Trump campaigned.
