On Day 1 of CPAC 2017 the American Conservative Union (ACU) had a special treat for conference go-ers.
Not only did they feature President Trump’s special advisor Kellyanne Conway in the morning session, they also showcased two of the President’s other advisors in the afternoon. Former Breitbart News chief Steve Bannon and White House Chief of Staff Reince Prieubus both showed up to sit down with ACU chief Matt Schlapp.
The best moment of the conversation may have come when Bannon lit into the liberal mainstream media and defended the Trump administration.
“It is not only not going to get better, it is going to get worse every day,” Bannon said. “They’re corporatist, globalist media who are adamantly opposed to an economic nationalist agenda like Donald Trump has. Here’s why it is going to get worse,” Bannon continued. “Because as Donald Trump continues to push forward this agenda, and as economic conditions get better, as more jobs get better, they are going to fight. If you think they are going to give you your country back without a fight, you are sadly mistaken. Every day it is going to be a fight,” he concluded.
