Prior to heading the Trump campaign, Steve Bannon described then-candidate Donald Trump as a "narcissist" and said he didn't care whether Trump won the White House, BuzzFeed News reported.

In a Jan. 13, 2016, email chain obtained by the news outlet, Bannon, then executive chairman at Breitbart News, got the draft of a story from Milo Yiannopoulos titled “How Trump Can Win Iowa,” BuzzFeed News reported.

"Why r we doing this," Bannon responded.

"We want him to win, don't we?" Yiannopoulos wrote back. "Well, I do..."

"No," Bannon replied, and told his staffers to hold the story, BuzzFeed News reported. "I'm totally indifferent. I'm darwinian...he who wins, wins."

Four days later, Yiannopoulos sent an email linking to a CNN video in which Trump discussed his relationship with God.

"He NEVER asks for forgiveness!!!" Bannon wrote back, BuzzFeed News reported — a reference to Trump’s July 2015 comments at a Family Leadership Summit. "It's a joke having him discuss god."

In response to Bannon's criticism of Trump's lack of humility, Breitbart's Washington political editor Matthew Boyle also weighed in on the email chain, BuzzFeed News reported.

"...He can't do anything wrong, at least in his mind," Boyle wrote, the outlet reported. "Trump is a genius at showing absolutely no weakness whatsoever and projecting macho man confidence. He is a giant walking, living, breathing self-fulfilling prophecy."

"Narcissist," Bannon wrote back, the outlet reported.

Bannon left Breitbart to lead the Trump campaign the following August.
