Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon apologized on Sunday for previous comments about U.S. President Donald Trump's eldest son. 
 
He had described Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with Russians in 2016 as "treasonous and "unpatriotic."  
 
Bannon issued a statement, describing Donald Trump, Jr. as a patriot and a good man. 
 
He also commented on Trump Jr.'s advocacy for his father and the agenda that Bannon said has helped turn the U.S. around.
 
He added his comments were aimed at Paul Manafort, saying that Manafort should have known the Russians he met were not to be trusted.
 
Bannon also reiterated his unwavering support for the president and his agenda.
 
British newspaper The Guardian first revealed on Wednesday Bannon had described a 2016 meeting at Trump Tower between a Russian lawyer and Trump' s son and son-in-law as " treasonous" and " unpatriotic." 
   
President Trump issued an official statement later on Wednesday saying that Bannon had "lost his mind" and had "no influence" within his government. 
   
Bannon was later snubbed by his political allies and conservative donors. 
   
Bannon was chief executive of the Trump campaign during the 2016 U.S. elections.
 
He became the White House chief strategist once Trump took office and left the White House in August before returning to head the right-wing Breitbart News.
