Before his White House departure became official Friday, fired chief strategist Steve Bannon met with billionaire Republican donor Robert Mercer for five hours Wednesday, plotting their path forward, Axios reported Friday.

The Mercers, longtime supporters of both President Donald Trump and Breitbart News, share Bannon's views on "the evils of big government," according to Business Insider.

Despite some speculation Bannon might "go nuclear" on the outside of President Trump's White House circle, the Axios source reportedly said Mercer and Bannon "remain strong supporters of President Trump's and his agenda."

The five-hour meeting Wednesday, two days before Friday's announcement, was held at Mercer's Long Island estate, and the Mercers dined "with President Trump and a small group of donors" Thursday night in Bedminster, N.J., according to the Axios report.

Sources told The Atlantic that Bannon has felt the administration is a "failing," "sinking ship," and his future includes a potential return to right-wing website Breitbart News or potentially serving as a Trump ally.

"First, he's gonna figure things out with Bob and Bekah," a source told The Atlantic.

"Breitbart's certainly the likely landing spot."
