Bannon will work with Orban in the run up to the EU elections


Steve Bannon, who was credited with re-organizing Donald Trump’s campaign and helping him win the 2016 US Presidential elections, intends to work with Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban for the 2019 European elections.

Bannon is setting up a pan-European movement of right wing parties and he’s already met with Orban in Budapest a couple of times. Orban welcomed the creation of The Movement, the name Bannon gave to his organization, as a chance to spread American style conservatism across Europe.

– If I could, we would headquarter The Movement in Budapest. I love it so much there. But obviously it is not practical. We will spend a lot of time in Hungary between now and election day, Bannon said in an interview.
A financier and political activist, Bannon led Breitbart, a media group founded by late right wing legend Andrew Breitbart, before being called up by Trump to turn his campaign around. His next visit to Budapest is scheduled for November.
