He may have left the White House, but he is still very much on President Donald Trump’s side, it seems. Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon announced on Wednesday the soon to be released new pro-Trump documentary he made, along with a new political group before November’s midterm elections.
The documentary titled “[email protected]” will be released in September, which will coincide with the second anniversary since former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton described Trump supporters as “deplorable”, which in turn only succeeded in boosting their support for the Republican nominee.
The documentary “[email protected]” is said to be only part one of Bannon’s planned “multi=pronged approach” to helping the GOP sweep the November elections. There’s also his new political group named “Citizens of the American Republic” to do the work for the midterm elections since Bannon views the midterms as a “referendum on Trump.”
“[email protected]” documentary is said to present Trump as a hero and the president’s detractors as villains, starting off with a scene that shows liberal protesters violently attacking Trump protesters.
Bannon is also interested in the midterm elections being looked at by extension as “an up-or-down vote on the president’s impeachment.”
Bannon is also planning to challenge, and limit, Democratic control of the House with a media blitz of pro-Trump messaging on cable television, editorial pages of local newspapers and right-wing radio shows.
Bannon also said his group will advise Trump surrogates and assist them in drafting and enhancing talking points ahead of the general elections.
The new political group also includes former Trump adviser Sam Nunberg, former Trump campaign strategist Michael Caputo and pollsters John McLaughlin and Pat Caddell, who is also close to Bannon.
Nunberg said in an earlier media interview that “jobs, economy, national security and impeachment 2018 is about saving the Trump presidency. That is a winning message.”
The strange thing is Trump and Bannon are said to be no longer speaking but Bannon has over the past several months sought to closely align himself with Trump, nonetheless.
