Politics Talk. Bannon: 'The Trump Presidency That We Fought For, and Won, Is Over.'

via Weekly Standard.
With the departure from the White House of strategist Stephen K. Bannon, who helped shape the so-called nationalist-populist program embraced by Donald Trump in his unlikely path to election, a new phase of the Trump presidency begins. Given Trump’s nature, what comes next will hardly be conventional, but it may well be less willfully disruptive—which, to Bannon, had been the point of winning the White House.

“The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over,” Bannon said Friday, shortly after confirming his departure. “We still have a huge movement, and we will make something of this Trump presidency. But that presidency is over. It’ll be something else. And there’ll be all kinds of fights, and there’ll be good days and bad days, but that presidency is over.”
Story here. 

Trump won because of his message of ECONOMIC NATIONALISM!  Put all the other stuff aside.  I believe everything we're seeing socially is a symptom of a bad economy.

The statistics say that happy days are here again.  We have a booming stock market.  Unemployment is at an all time low.  Fuel prices are relatively low. Inflation is also low.

But no one feels it.

What you're seeing in the street (after I put my anger away at seeing Nazis, KKK and White Supremacists marching down a street at night with torches) is a country that is stressed by a poor economy.

That's why Trump won the Republican nomination and Sanders had it stolen from him by the democrats.

The messages were the same but the establishment wouldn't listen.

Bannon is spot on.  In the end it's about the economy stupid!  Looking at this rationally, this is just another distraction to keep people occupied and their attention off the fact that economically they're getting body slammed.
