Steve Bannon will attend seminar at the Foreign Relations Commission
Former Donald Trump strategist, Bannon to talk about environmentalism and geopolitics
The Foreign Relations Commission (CRE) will promote in November the seminar Environmentalism and Geopolitics. And one of the attendees will be Steve Bannon, former chief White House strategist in Donald Trump’s administration. Bannon held the post between January and August 2017, having been the marketing coordinator for Trump’s election campaign. He was also a member of the US National Security Council.
Bannon’s trip to the CRE complies with the request of Eduardo Bolsonaro (PSL-SP) chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee of the Chamber of Deputies, as explained by Senator Marcio Bittar (MDB-AC), who presented the request for the seminar.
“We will discuss climate change, global trade disputes and the game of international power. Bannon will go to Sao Paulo in early November, and Eduardo Bolsonaro suggested that he come here at CRE. He is a person who can add a lot to discussions about current geopolitics and environmental issues, including debate with senators who have a different point of view than his. I personally share in general terms with Bannon’s political vision and I think it will be a good contribution towards deepening the debate in society and here in the Senate,” said Bittar.
The exact date of the seminar will still be set by the president of CRE, Senator Nelsinho Trad (PSD-MS). In addition to Bannon, will participate the American economist Patrick Wood, author of the book Technocracy: the difficult road to world order, and gift Bertrand of Orleans and Braganza, author of the book Environmental Psychosis. These two guests also meet the Bittar requirement.
At the suggestion of Esperidião Amin (PP-SC), the Minister of the Environment, Ricardo Salles, and the chairman of the Senate Environment Committee (CMA), Senator Fabiano Contarato (Rede-ES), are also being called to the seminar.
