At least one person isn't buying the contention that White House chief strategist Steve Bannon submitted his resignation on Aug. 7.
Robert Kuttner, co-founder and co-editor of The American Prospect, interviewed Bannon on Tuesday afternoon. The interview, in which Bannon said the U.S. is already at "economic war with China," was published on Wednesday and was widely shared.
During that phone conversation, Bannon invited Kuttner, who was on vacation, to the White House after Labor Day, Kuttner said.
"If somebody knows that he's given his letter of resignation, why would he invite me to the White House after Labor Day?" the liberal writer told CNBC's "Power Lunch" on Friday.
