#CPAC 2017: ‘The Deconstruction of the Administrative State’ — Steve Bannon

Posted on | February 23, 2017 | 1 Comment


President Trump is “maniacally focused” on keeping the promises he made to America during his campaign, White House strategist Steve Bannon said Thursday during a panel with chief of staff Reince Priebus. That includes enforcing immigration law — “protecting the sovereignty of the United States,” as Priebus said — and an agenda of deregulation that Bannon called the “deconstruction of the administrative state.”

Bannon warned the audience in the Potomac Ballroom at the Conservative Political Action Conference to expect intensifying attacks on Trump the “corporatist, globalist media” that is opposed to the president’s agenda of economic nationalism. “If you think you are getting your country back without a fight, you are sadly mistaken,” said Bannon, the former executive chairman of Breitbart News. “We want you to have our backs . . . to hold us accountable for what we promised.”

Priebus attributed Trump’s victory last November to the New York real estate mogul’s authenticity. “What the American people were starving for was somebody real, somebody genuine,” said Priebus, former chairman of the Republican National Committee. Priebus credited Trump for uniting the disparate factions of the GOP after a hard-fought primary campaign that began with 16 candidates seeking the nomination. Keeping the conservative movement connected to the Republican Party is the key to success in moving forward Trump’s agenda, Priebus said. “If the party and the movement are together, we can’t be stopped.”
