President Donald Trump has said his former White House aide, Steve Bannon "lost his mind" after he lost his job at the White House.

In a report by BBC, Trump denied any responsibility or support for Bannon after he was quoted in a new book describing a meeting between Mr Trump's son and a group of Russians as "treasonous".

"Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my presidency. When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind," Mr Trump said in a statement on Wednesday, January 3, 2018.

"Steve was a staffer who worked for me after I had already won the nomination by defeating seventeen candidates, often described as the most talented field ever assembled in the Republican party," he continued.

"Now that he is on his own, Steve is learning that winning isn't as easy as I make it look. Steve had very little to do with our historic victory, which was delivered by the forgotten men and women of this country."
