Bannon: ‘The Mainstream Media Better Understand’ That All of Trump’s Promises Will Be Implemented

In a rare public appearance, White House chief strategist Steve Bannon showed up at CPAC today to speak, sharing the stage with White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.

Speaking to American Conservative Union chair Matt Schlapp — and having already doubled down on calling the mainstream media the “opposition party” — Bannon took another shot at the press, claiming they don’t know how to report on President Donald Trump.

“This is the other thing that the mainstream media or opposition party never caught is that if you want to see the Trump agenda it’s very simple,” Bannon stated. “It was all in the speeches.”

He then noted that the media won’t report on what’s really going on with the Trump administration and the promises the president made.

“That’s what the mainstream media won’t report, just like in the chaos of the transition, they’re dead wrong in what’s going on today,” he said.

Bannon added, “President Trump is following through on what he promised the American people, and the mainstream media better understand something — all of those promises are going to be implemented.”
