Bloomberg, citing people familiar with the matter who spoke anonymously because the conversations were private, reported that Trump has reconciled with his once-estranged strategist, though it was not clear how many times the two had talked or how recently.
One source reportedly said that the president has reached out to allies who would tell him what he wants to hear as he continued to advance unsubstantiated claims of a “stolen” election and widespread voter fraud.
The White House and a spokesperson for Bannon did not immediately respond to The Hill’s requests for comment.
Bannon left the Trump White House in August 2017 after consistently clashing with other aides, and the rift between himself and the president widened in the months following when Bannon was revealed to have given highly critical remarks on the record about Trump and his family.
