Steve Bannon Presses Line Against Media

Steve Bannon
Steve Bannon, the chief strategist for President Donald Trump, blamed reports of internal rivalries and chaos in the administration on an intensifying feud with the media that he vowed would continue as the White House pushes to tighten immigration enforcement and cut federal regulations, according to The Wall Street Journal.

“If you think they’re going to give you your country back without a fight, you are sadly mistaken,” Mr. Bannon told activists gathered Thursday at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Oxon Hill, Md. “Every day, it is going to be a fight.”

On Thursday, Bannon picked up that line, describing the president as an underdog and the reporters covering him as “the opposition party.”

He added: “They’re corporatist, globalist media that are adamantly opposed to an economic nationalist agenda like Donald Trump has.”

Bannon said President Trump is “maniacally focused” on delivering on campaign promises, including a continued push for deregulation, which Bannon referred to as “deconstruction of the administrative state.” The senior White House official also vowed that the president’s budget proposal would help fulfill other campaign promises.
