In an interview Friday Steve Bannon told The Weekly Standard that “The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over.”
Bannon said: “We still have a huge movement, and we will make something of this Trump presidency. But that presidency is over. It’ll be something else. And there’ll be all kinds of fights, and there’ll be good days and bad days, but that presidency is over.”
Banon spoke hours after it was announced that Trump’s chief strategist fired. In the interview, Bannon said that he expects President Trump’s advisers move him in a more conventional direction.
“His natural tendency — and I think you saw it this week on Charlottesville — his actual default position is the position of his base, the position that got him elected.”
