President Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon made it clear Monday night that his “war on the Republican establishment” is not a skirmish or a battle but a long-term campaign that could take decades.
“To take your country back – it’s not going to happen in just one election. This is something you’re going to have to grind out day in and day out for the next five, 10, 15, 20 years,” Bannon told the Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity.
“It took us a long time to get here. There’s no magic wand we can wave and drain the swamp. There’s no magic wand we can wave and blow up this establishment. I hate to tell people, you’re going to have to work,” he added.
“But you know what? The grit, determination and courage of the American working men and women – we are going to win.”
Bannon’s current focus is to challenge Republican incumbents in the 2018 midterm elections who do not support the agenda President Trump ran on in 2016, which “backs the working men and women of this country.” (Read more from “Bannon Launching Decades-Long ‘War’ on GOP Establishment” HERE)
