Former White House political strategist Steve Bannon has named the next target in his war against President Donald Trump’s enemies: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

“Mitch McConnell, I’m going to light him up,” Bannon told the Economist in an interview published on Friday.

In the interview, Bannon also railed against the business elites within the Republican Party that are conspiring to bring down the nationalist agenda he wants to see enacted by the president.

“The elites in Silicon Valley and Wall Street—they’re a bunch of globalists who have forgotten their fellow Americans,” he fumed.

All the same, Bannon pledged that Breitbart was going to remain loyal to Trump, even though it wouldn’t be shy about criticizing him for breaking promises to his voters.

“We will never turn on him,” Bannon said. “But we are never going to let him take a decision that hurts him.”

Speaking to MSNBC on Monday about the recent bombshell report about President Donald Trump's taxes, his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, explained that behind closed doors, Trump is likely panicking.

Sunday night, Cohen recalled a conversation in his book in which Trump got a $10 million refund from the IRS, which Trump mocked as "so stupid."

MSNBC host Katy Tur asked Cohen if Trump is inflating and deflating properties' size to either get more in loans or pay less in taxes. Cohen said that he anticipates it's something that the New York attorney general and the Manhattan district attorney are looking into. Complaints have already been filed against the Trump Organization for it.

Conservative says Trump’s tax revelations show another reason he’s so terrified to leave office

Published

Conservative Washington Post writer Max Boot noted that the recent revelations about President Donald Trump's taxes expose the real reason that he's terrified to leave office.

Writing Monday, Boot began by admitting that Hillary Clinton was right all along. It's one of many things she warned of in the 2016 election that went ignored by the Republican Party and the majority of voters in Rust Belt states.

"He managed to pay no federal income taxes at all in 10 of the previous 15 years — and only $750 in 2016 and 2017 — by claiming vast losses from his business empire," Boot said, citing the New York Times report. "That $750 figure is a killer because it’s a number that middle-class Americans can understand. As a just-released Biden campaign ad points out, that’s far less than the taxes paid by the average teacher, nurse or firefighter."
