Republican President Donald Trump’s chief advisor, white nationalist sympathizer Steve Bannon, is now in a position to wreak havoc on “the institutions of democracy” according to Spiegel.
“I’m a Leninist… I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today’s establishment,” said Bannon.
“Trump named Bannon “a permanent member of the National Security Council. ‘That’s the worst thing that has ever happened,’ says one former Bannon confidant.”
“Just months ago, Bannon predicted: ‘We’re going to war in the South China Sea in five to 10 years. There’s no doubt about that.'”
“… Bannon — a man so far out on the right-wing fringe that even the Republican establishment thought he was a whacko — is the decisive puller of strings behind Trump.”
“Trump is a “blunt instrument for us,” Bannon told Vanity Fair last summer. “I don’t know whether he really gets it or not.”
