Bannon Tells Asia Times: US Election Is All About China

Steve Bannon, former senior White House strategist and CEO of Donald Trump’s winning 2016 presidential campaign, believes China will be center stage at the upcoming US presidential election.

Trump was lagging in the polls against Democratic rival Hillary Clinton when Bannon joined the campaign in August 2016. The former investment banker is widely credited with designing Trump’s successful economic populism and attacks on Clinton’s alleged corruption during the campaign’s last three months.

Today, Bannon denies rumors that he will take an official role in Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign, but he strongly advises the president to focus on China – particularly on what he calls the Chinese Communist Party’s “war” on the United States, and on Democratic candidate Joe Biden’s China connections.

He holds the Chinese Communist Party responsible for the Covid-19 pandemic and its economic consequences, and sees no room for compromise with the rising superpower. Bannon says he wants to help the Chinese people overthrow the Communist Party and advises a self-styled government-in-the-wings, what he terms the “Federal State of China.”

Bannon spoke to Asia Times’ Deputy Editor David P Goldman via telephone from Washington, DC. The transcript is lightly edited for grammar but is otherwise reproduced verbatim.
