Stephen K. Bannon, Donald Trump’s White House chief strategist, the former boss at Breitbart.com, was given a full seat on the “principals committee” of the National Security Council. That move has alarmed politicians and voters due to the controversy surrounding Trump’s closest advisor.
Bannon thinks that the US will be at war with China in the next few years and that’s unnerving considering Trump’s attacks on China on social media and the news.
Bannon wants to go to war with a country we owe a f*ck ton of money to:
The far-right figure, who has been given unprecedented power in the White House and has suggested in the past that he supports white supremacy, suggested that the two countries are headed towards war over the South China Sea.
“We’re going to war in the South China Sea in five to 10 years, aren’t we?” said Bannon on his radio show in March 2016. “There’s no doubt about that. They’re taking their sandbars and making basically stationary aircraft carriers and putting missiles on those. They come here to the United States in front of our face — and you understand how important face is — and say it’s an ancient territorial sea.”
In the past, Bannon has compared himself to Lenin. “Lenin wanted to destroy the state, and that’s my goal too. I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today’s establishment,” Bannon told a journalist with The Daily Beast. “I’m a Leninist,” he said. He’s also acting as Donald Trump’s brain in the White House.
A senior Chinese military official said that war with the U.S. under Donald Trump is “not just a slogan” and becoming a “practical reality.”
Bannon is doing this to stick it to what he deems to be the ‘establishment.’ He’ll destroy the world. Trump supporters, you did this. You voted in a madman who is taking orders from a white supremacist. And by the way, Bannon is making sure there is no White House paper trail.
