“War Room” host Steve Bannon hit hard at Turning Point Action this weekend in West Palm Beach, Florida, greeted by thousands of eager attendees who erupted with excitement when he took the stage on Sunday to deliver remarks.
Bannon, an ally to President Trump and a former White House advisor, told the crowd that Trump would “receive north of 80 million votes” in the 2024 presidential election and “be the 47th president of the United States!”
The media personality has faced significant legal challenges over the past year, but he was resolute in his remarks over the weekend, declaring that America was waging a “HOLY WAR” against the corruption of the Deep State.
He said, “We don’t have time for a diversion, we need to be focused right now on the election apparatuses…in Georgia, Arizona, and to get behind Donald Trump and GET SERIOUS about TAKING THIS COUNTRY BACK!”
He continued, “This is a CRUSADE! This is a HOLY WAR against the Deep State. Donald Trump is our instrument for RETRIBUTION. I don’t want to hear Glenn Youngkin in a vest, I don’t want to hear Kemp with his Georgia accent…Donald Trump is our instrument for righteous indignation!”
His remarks drew loud cheering and applause from the audience.
Bannon additionally said that Trump was going to “declassify everything” immediately after his potential 2025 inauguration, specifically referring to the assassination documents of President John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr.
Bannon explained, “An informed American citizen with the consent of the governed that does not comply needs that information.”
Bannon also roasted Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) while he was speaking, calling him a “tragic figure” who “drank the Kool-Aid of the Murdochs and the donor class – you know why? They’re neoliberal neocons and he was gonna be their BOY!”
Turning Point Action’s anticipated straw poll seemed to reflect Bannon’s sentiments, as participating respondents indicated that Trump was their first choice for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination by a whopping 78-point lead. Republican businessman Perry Johnson netted the second spot, accruing 7.8 percent.
Gov. DeSantis won third place, netting just 4.3 percent of support.
