Michael Wolff writes up an interview with Steve Bannon
“I’m not a white nationalist, I’m a nationalist”, he tells me. “The globalist gutted the American working class and created a middle class in Asia. The issue is about Americans not getting [done] over. If we [the trump White House] deliver, we get 60 percent of the white vote, and 40 percent of the black and Hispanic vote and we’ll govern for 50 years. That’s what the Democrats missed. They were talking to these people with companies with a $9bn dollar market cap, employing nine people. It’s not reality. They lost sight of what the world is really about.”
“Like [Andrew] Jackson’s populism, we’re going to build an entirely new political movement”, he says. “It’s everything related to jobs. The conservatives are going to go crazy. I’m the guy pushing a trillion-dollar infrastructure plan. With negative interest rates throughout the world, it’s the greatest opportunity to rebuild everything. Ship yards, iron works, get them all jacked up. We’re just going to throw it up against the wall and see if it sticks. It will be as exciting as the 1930s, greater than the Reagan revolution — conservatives, plus populists, in an economic nationalist movement.”
According to Joseph Stigler not all of it will stick though.
