Here are a couple of important points from the statement:
“Donald Trump, Jr. is both a patriot and a good man. He has been relentless in his advocacy for his father and the agenda that has helped turn our country around.”
“My support is also unwavering for the president and his agenda — as I have shown daily in my national radio broadcasts, on the pages of Breitbart News and in speeches and appearances from Tokyo and Hong Kong to Arizona and Alabama.”
“President Trump was the only candidate that could have taken on and defeated the Clinton apparatus. I am the only person to date to conduct a global effort to preach the message of Trump and Trumpism; and remain ready to stand in the breech for this president’s efforts to make America great again.”
This was a smart move for Steve Bannon.
Everyone knew the comments in “Fire and Fury” were taken out of context. And everyone knows Donald Trump Jr. is a patriot. The statement was clear, not too soft and keeps Steve Bannon in place as a top voice for the #MAGA movement.
