Steve Bannon, the host of the “War Room” podcast and former advisor to former President Donald Trump, is calling on his former boss to take action immediately.
In his first interview after being indicted in New York, Bannon spoke to Sebastian Gorka , another former Trump advisor, and said that the former president “needs to announce for president tomorrow morning. We got to put it out there. We don’t have time for games,” Bannon said Friday.
“No time for nonsense, you know we’re going to win sweeping victories on his agenda. We have to execute on that; he’s going to be the nominee. We don’t need a big long nomination fight. And by the way, we’re over the Never Trumper thing. We’re going to put that to bed. But we got to start laying at the agenda from day one,” he said.
Gorka said that Bannon was not rattled by his indictment.
“Incredibly. He’s taking time out of being hauled into court on another spurious charge, my former boss in the White House, the host of the War Room, we have Steve Bannon with us, straight From New York,” he said at the start of the interview.
“If there was one issue outside of the Navy, that was closest to your heart over the last six years, it was building the security border wall, so it is ridiculous that somehow you would, bilk Americans out of money to build the wall,” he said.
He took a swipe at New York City Mayor Eric Adams for his city prosecuting him for his effort to build a wall as he complains about illegal aliens being sent from Texas to New York.
“Adams has to go the border to find out what the causes of the invasion are. It’s because he’s made New York, a sanctuary city. We literally have thousands of these unauthorized aliens coming into the country right now, who are a part of the 4.9 million nationwide because they won’t secure the border. Adams is going to open hotels to house all of these people and then New York social services are going to collapse. So Adams, actually sent a delegation to the border to see what can be done to stop the migration, and I saw we should build a wall,” the former Trump advisor said.
“We took an educational program all over the country every weekend to inform people to think of every town as a Border town because the consequences of open borders affect them and their families too. We went to Detroit, we went to Cincinnati, went to Arizona,” he said.
“We did conferences at the wall to warm people of what we’re telling them now, that this situation is going to get out of control by 2022. Is so out of control now,” he said.
And Bannon said that he was not going to allow the prosecution of him stop him.
“I am never going to stop. I am never, never going to stop the War Room; we are only getting bigger. We are only getting more aggressive; we won’t back off. You know, on any topic we ever talk about will never give up on, and our big focus right now is winning.
“The way we get these people to stop is by going to the polls on November 8. Everybody’s got to get out. You need to get everybody out. We need a sweeping fifty, fifty-Seven people in the house. We need to get the School Board. Select all of them who need to win across the board and shatter the Democratic party,” the “War Room” host said.
“We also want President Trump to weigh in and declare his candidacy for President. Trump has an obligation here to win it.
“We need people to put their shoulders on the wheel. A lot of these guys wanted his endorsement and now it’s time to go full MAGA if you got an endorsement from President Trump,” he said.
