Stephen Bannon's tumultuous White House exit last week was "not personal for him," according to former Trump deputy campaign manager David Bossie.

In an interview on "Fox News Sunday," Bossie said Bannon is firmly behind President Donald Trump's agenda.

"The one thing I've learned from Steve in the last couple days, his opinion for the future, this is not personal for him," Bossie said. "This is about the president's agenda and the president succeeding on that winning agenda that got him elected last November."

"I don't believe for a minute that Steve Bannon has gone against the president's agenda in any way, shape, or form," he added.

He said chief of staff Gen. John Kelly "wants to have and run a shop that he creates.

"The reason that Steve offered his resignation was to get that, to give the general an opportunity to have a clean slate," Bossie said. "I think much like [former chief of staff] Reince Priebus…[and former press secretary] Sean Spicer before him."

Bossie also refuted the idea that Bannon believes the president has failed in his presidency so far.

"I specifically believe that he [means] Congress has failed," he said, adding that Senate Majority Leader "Mitch McConnell and [House Speaker] Paul Ryan have to step up, have to give us meaningful tax reform reform, have to get repeal and replace of Obamacare … a host of legislative accomplishments that the president ran on and won on."
