Former White House strategist Steve Bannon shared some interesting information about former President Donald Trump’s campaign and what he will face going into next year.
During a segment on his “War Room” podcast, Bannon predicted that the former president will see “nothing but a war” in the 2024 general election, where he predicted “political warfare” over the next several years.
“Get Prepared, we got a fight ahead of us,” Bannon said. “There’s still the primary, the RNC and the donors are gonna try and [block] Trump, so we gotta get through that. The general election and I don’t have to believe Biden will be the nominee, I think they’ll trade him out, but we’ve got nothing but a war in the general election. We’ve got six to eight years ahead of us of absolute political warfare.”
Bannon also tore into House Speaker Kevin McCarthy as well as House Republicans Jim Jordan of Ohio and James Comer of Kentucky over the idea of passing a spending bill that does not give the GOP any real wins.
“Answer the question. Why have you not done anything in the first nine months? You’ve been called out on this. And number one — all of these ideas you’re — you want a clean CR? A clean CR would basically mean that Nancy Pelosi has had another year, a bonus year, she did such a great job, a bonus year. You’re spitting in the face of this audience,” Bannon began.
“You lied when you cut the deal, on the debt deal. You lied to people. And you’re trying to put shiny toys — I’m going to add the terrific border — we’ve got enough laws. Yes, the border thing, it’s great. It’s gonna be more — but we have enough laws. It’s the execution and implementation of those laws, and they’re laughing in your face,” he added.
“You’re doing nothing. You’re doing nothing about the woke and weaponized. You’re doing nothing about the ceding of our sovereignty to these international organizations. Nothing is getting done. Nothing. It’s all performative. Including Comer and Jordan. You’re weak and sad. This is heartbreaking. And Kevin McCarthy lies. They came — that’s a bald-faced lie. This is tepidly what McCarthy does. You see how weak he is? You see that? Well, it’s not really impeachment, we’re just going to ask a few questions. Stand up and be a man. Own the room. Step in there. You know why people are sick of this? You know why they’re sick of Fox News, and they’re sick of the Republican Party, and they’re sick of the uni-party, and they’re sick of half of conservative media? Because you’re pencil-necks that’ll roll over immediately,” Bannon concluded.
President Joe Biden and Donald Trump appear to be headed for a rematch of their 2020 contest after a brand new survey from the Wall Street Journal found that they are in a dead heat.
The poll asked: “If the 2024 general election for President were held today and the candidates were Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden, for whom would you vote?”
Both received 46 percent, but notably, that is a one-point increase for Trump and a two-point decrease for Biden since April, the WSJ noted.
“The survey also asked respondents who they would choose in a matchup between Trump, Biden, Green Party candidate Cornel West, and Libertarian Lars Mapstead. In that scenario, Trump leads Biden by a single percentage point— 40 percent to 39 percent. Two percent chose West, one percent chose Mapstead, and 17 percent remain undecided,” Breitbart News added, citing the survey.
“As has been consistent in virtually every other survey, Trump leads in the Republican primary race by double digits with 59 percent support. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis falls 46 points behind with 13 percent support. That reflects a massive shift since April, when 24 points separated the two, as Trump saw 48 percent support to the Florida governor’s 24 percent,” the outlet continued.
The survey also found that a supermajority of Democrat voters believe Biden is too old to run again.
