Now President Trump’s ex-White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon is eyeing every Republican senator up for re-election next year, positioning candidates in each race save one, the seat belonging to Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.
Bannon’s main aim is to elect enough pro-Trump GOP senators to oust Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who he’s largely blamed for the president’s early stumbles with Congress, casting the Kentuckian as an elitist looking down at Trump’s working class base.
‘Mitch McConnell and this permanent political class is the most corrupt and incompetent group of individuals in this country,’ Bannon said at a recent rally for Roy Moore, the GOP Senate candidate who won a run-off primary against Sen. Luther Strange, R-Ala., last month.
Using us-versus-them rhetoric, Bannon said McConnell and the elites ‘think you’re a pack of morons, they think you’re nothing but rubes, they have no interest at all in what you have to say, what you have to think or what you want to do.’
The takeover of the Republican Party continues. Draining the swamp. Establishment Republicans still want to flood the country with cheap foreign labor.
