Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon believes President Donald Trump will win the 2020 presidential election — big league.
During a wide ranging interview Wednesday with The New York Times, Bannon predicted Trump, who won 304 electoral votes in 2016, will easily surpass that in three years.
“He’s going to win re-election with 400 electoral votes and he’ll be considered in the pantheon of Reagan and Lincoln and others as great presidents, but you have to stick with the program,” Bannon said during The Times interview.
Bannon also spoke about Republican Ed Gillespie, who lost Tuesday’s gubernatorial race in Virginia to Democrat Ralph Northam.
Bannon said Gillespie, a former White House counselor to President George W. Bush and chairman of the Republican National Committee, embraced Trump’s “America First” agenda too late in his campaign.
As noted by Breitbart, Bannon believes Gillespie would have won had he distanced himself from the D.C. swamp and embraced Trump’s movement early in the running.
“I think it was grafted on,” Bannon said. “Who did Gillespie campaign with? He campaigned with George Bush and Marco Rubio and I think Condi Rice. Right? He had George Bush standing next to him. Did he have Donald Trump standing next to him? No, he did not.”
With Gillespie’s loss coming almost a year after Trump won the presidential election, Bannon said it should serve as a reminder that it won’t be easy to advance Trump’s bold agenda.
“I keep telling people, every day is going to be a struggle,” he said. “You’re going to win some, lose some. It’s a process.”
It’s a process Bannon should understand, just from his ride on the roller coaster that was the ultimately successful Trump presidential campaign.
In August 2016, Trump named Bannon as his new campaign chief and the former Navy officer played a major role in helping Trump advance his “America First” agenda as a candidate and as president of the United States.
Americans want a border wall, lower taxes, continued efforts to deport illegal immigrants, and jobs.
If Trump continues to accomplish big goals, how could he not win 400 electoral votes in 2020?
Bannon believes Trump will win big in 2020 and continue to make this nation great.
