In an unaired portion of an interview on “60 Minutes,” Steve Bannon launched into a diatribe against Hillary Clinton and a speech she gave last year attempting to tie Breitbart News, white supremacists and the Trump campaign together.
Bannon said Clinton’s remarks “landed flat” and went on to say, “Hillary Clinton’s not very bright. Everybody says she’s so smart, so much smarter than Donald Trump. She doesn’t really have a grasp, she doesn’t have a grasp on what’s important and what’s not, and that’s what’s essential in a leader. Donald Trump has a grasp on what’s important and what’s marginalia, OK.”
The conversation then turned to Bannon’s views on ethno-nationalism. Bannon and Breitbart News, which he rejoined last month after being fired from the White House, have been under relentless attack by liberals who say that they promote ethno-nationalism for whites, i.e. white nationalism.
But Bannon insisted in his interview that he instead supports economic nationalism.
“Economic nationalism is what this country was built on, the American system,” Bannon said while labeling ethno-nationalism “morally wrong” and “irrelevant.”
“We go back to that, we look after our own, we look after our citizens, we look after our manufacturing base, and guess what, this country is going to be greater, more united, more powerful than it’s ever been,” he added.
“That’s every nationality, every race, every religion, every sexual preference, as long as you’re a citizen of our country.”
