Trump Adviser Steve Bannon Tells Press to "Keep Its Mouth Shut"

The battle between Donald Trump and the press escalated Thursday after one of Trump’s top advisors called the media the opposition party. In a rare interview with the New York Times Trump's Chief Strategist Steve Bannon said, “The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for a while." Bannon, the former head of Breitbart News, added, "I want you to quote this. The media here is the opposition party. They don’t understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is the president of the United States.”
