Former White House adviser Steve Bannon this week cautioned President Donald Trump that he is wasting his time by campaigning to Republican women because "they're gone."
In an interview with Vanity Fair writer Gabriel Sherman, Bannon suggested that Trump is on track to win the 2020 election.
“It’s like my white board’s there and Trump is checking shit off,” Bannon crowed. “Trump is on the full MAGA agenda."
Bannon argued that the 2018 midterm election is like 2016's contest, except Trump is running against House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) instead of Hillary Clinton.
“She’s the Hillary,” he said. “She’s got some of the same tendencies!”
The former Trump adviser said that the threat of impeachment would drive Trump voters to the polls.
“When you focus on impeachment, it’s a game changer," he explained. "It’s an emotional issue that raises the stakes.”
But Bannon's also had some bad news for Trump concerning Republican women voters.
“This is a ‘deplorable-plus electorate.’ What I mean is, it’s deplorables plus Reagan Democrats and guys who voted for Trump who vote never. You bring them out in an off year.” he said.
“The Republican college-educated woman is done,” Bannon added. “They’re gone. They were going anyway at some point in time. Trump triggers them. This is now the Trump movement.”
