Former Trump chief strategist Steve Bannon may not have left the White House on the best of terms, but he still “couldn’t be prouder” of President Donald Trump and the job he’s doing, Bannon told Jonathan Karl on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday morning.
“Donald Trump is accomplishing everything he committed to the American people on the campaign that I stepped in as CEO. I couldn’t be prouder of the guy,” Bannon said. “All he has to do is continue to hit those marks on that whiteboard and he’s going to run the tables.”
But that doesn’t mean that and Trump have kept in touch since Bannon’s very public exit.
“Before I stepped in as CEO of the campaign, I probably talked to Donald Trump 10 times in my entire life,” he said. “I don’t need to talk to Donald Trump.”
Bannon told Stephanopoulos that “no,” he hasn’t actually talked to Trump recently but explained that he communicates with him “every day through the press and the media.”
“He’s got too many guys to talk to right now,” Bannon said. “All he’s got to do is listen to his own inner voice.”
And Bannon is confident that if Trump keeps it up, November’s midterm elections will be an easy win in the president’s favor.
“[Listening to his inner voice] is going to lead – write this down – that’s going to lead to an astounding victory in November, where he’s going to run the tables in the House and he’s going to pick up a couple seats in the Senate.”
