In an interview with CBS News correspondent Seth Doane, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon says he expects 2019 to be the “most vitriolic year” in politics since the Civil War.
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.
