President Donald Trump’s former strategist Steve Bannon said he believes his former boss will win re-election by an even bigger margin in the 2020 presidential election.
“I happen to think now, the president is going to run again in 2020 and I think he’ll win. I think he’ll win bigger than he won in 2016,” Bannon said on CBS News’ Face the Nation on Sunday. The alt-right pundit pointed to the strong economy to support his assertion, saying he has “zero” doubt that Trump will run.
Although Trump won the Electoral College vote by a wide margin in 2016, more Americans actually voted his political rival Hillary Clinton. In the popular vote, Clinton took 48 percent and Trump garnered just 45.9 percent.
