NUR-SULTAN – Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon predicted on Friday that his former boss, US President Donald Trump, would win the November 2020 presidential elections but could expect the Democrats to “give him a run for the money.”
“It’s going to be a very, very, very difficult campaign. I believe that because of the economic results and now his engagement in China and other spots in the world, President Trump is going to win,” Bannon told the Eurasian Media Forum in the southern Kazakh city of Almaty.
The Democrats “will give him a run for the money and have to convince the working class people that their policies are going to work,” Bannon said.
Democratic candidates, now numbering more than from any political party in US history, include figures such as former Vice President Joe Biden, Senators Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren, former Congressman Beto O’Rourke and the Mayor of South Bend (Indiana), Pete Buttigieg.
Trump’s former adviser said that the 2020 elections would be fought in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin.
“The upper Midwest is going to determine the next president of the United States,” Bannon said.
