Steven Bannon Has WILD Prediction for GOP in Coming Months

While Steve Bannon may no longer have a seat in the Oval Office, he certainly maintains a finger on the pulse of republican politics.

His time in the White House was somewhat brief, but former Trump administration chief strategist Steve Bannon seems more than comfortable back at the helm of his free press news site Breitbart.  Furthermore, his newfound celebrity as a household name in American politics has the influential publisher sitting down with all manner of media outlets for interviews reflecting on his time in the West Wing.

In one such interview, the prolific and intelligent Bannon allowed some insight into the future of the republican party, regardless of whether or not he is the harbinger of doom or boon.

“Steve Bannon, executive chairman of Breitbart and former White House chief strategist, sat down for a wide-ranging interview with Charlie Rose of ’60 minutes.’ Topics included draining the swamp, DACA, Republican infighting, and Russia. Here are some of the highlights:

“’The Republican establishment is trying to nullify the 2016 election. That’s a brutal fact we have to face.’

“Bannon said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) are against President Donald Trump’s populist, economic nationalist agenda. He cited a meeting with McConnell early in President Donald Trump’s term in which Bannon said McConnell expressed opposition to Trump’s promises to ‘drain the swamp.’

“Bannon said he believes the ‘swamp,’ which he defines as the ‘business model’ of the Republican Party over the past several decades, has been so profitable for those who helped build it that those establishment Republicans will resist attempts to change it.

“’You’re not gonna drain that in eight months,’ Bannon said. ‘You’re not gonna drain it in two terms. This is gonna take 10, 15, 20 years of relentlessly going after it.’”
Bannon went on to insinuate that the GOP itself could be subject to a Civil War, and idea that Trump supporters would likely embrace.
Trump, who is by all accounts a bit of a controversial President, has taken Washington D.C. by the shoulders and given her a thorough, vigorous shake.  It’s what the business mogul was elected to do, as the American people demonstrated their inability to suffer through another Washington insider President by electing Trump wholeheartedly in the 2016 election.
Trump is a nuisance and a threat to those who play by the old rules of D.C., with his new breed of citizen politician poised to inundate Washington in the coming years.
