Even if he loses a second White House term, Bannon says, we are 'not going to see the end of Donald Trump.’
Bannon, who was recently arrested for federal money-laundering and fraud, continued that he thinks the November 3 election was ‘closer than is being reported’, and declared ‘Trump will win on election day’.
‘I’ll make this prediction right now: if for any reason the election is stolen from or in some sort of way Joe Biden is declared the winner, Trump will announce he’s going to run for re-election in 2024,’ he said.
Bannon also thinks that the election result will go to the Supreme Court and may even be conferred to the House of Representative in January, assuming the result will be contentious and ‘won’t be settled anytime soon’.
Bannon’s latest remarks cast a somewhat more pessimistic tone to comments made just days ago throughout a speech in front of the Young Republican Federation, in which he firmly stated that not only will Trump win on November 3, but he will secure victory very early.
‘At 10 o'clock or 11 o'clock… on November 3, Donald J. Trump is going to walk into the Oval Office, and he may hit a tweet before he goes in there… and he's going to sit there, having won Ohio, and being up in Pennsylvania and Florida, and he's going to say, “Hey, game's over,”' Bannon, Trump’s 2016 campaign CEO, told the crowd.
‘The elites are traumatized. They do not want to go stand in line and vote. That, ladies and gentlemen, is a game-changer,’ Bannon explained. ‘It [the decisive factor] is what electorate shows up to vote on a vote that can be certified. That's a vote that counts. And right now, what they [Trump critics] don't want to talk about, is Donald J. Trump leads on people who are actually going to show up and vote on November 3, by 21 percent.’
On a different matter, Bannon further claimed that the lawyers acting for Joe Biden’s son Hunter have made many attempts to recover his computer hard-drive that’s now at the center of an FBI probe.
Bannon was arrested and charged in August with deceiving donors to a private fund-raising purpose called We Build the Wall, which was intended to support the president’s signature initiative along the Mexican border.
The fund-raising effort raised more than $25 million, and prosecutors say Bannon stole nearly $1 million of it for personal expenses.
Bannon was declared not guilty of the charges on August 20.
