It also covers only Bannon's role on Trump's campaign, as opposed to events that occurred during the presidential transition or while Bannon served as a top aide to Trump in the White House.

Bannon has tried to explain away his insults as misunderstandings.

Although Bannon has managed to avoid questioning by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team, he has gone on-record criticizing the Trump team's handling of the Russian Federation investigation.

In the book, Bannon called the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting that Trump's son Donald Trump Jr., son-in-law Jared Kushner and campaign chairman at the time Paul Manafort had with Russian figures "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".

Trump said "we'll see what happens" when asked if he'd provide an interview to Mueller's team.
