Former Trump advisor Steve Bannon made a bold prediction about former president Donald Trump to several mainstream reporters on Showtime’s “The Circus” program.
Bannon predicted that the MAGA movement is going to extend beyond Trump’s third presidential run and will ultimately change the face of the Republican Party.
The ‘War Room’ host also warned that Anti-Trump forces will one day wish President Trump was still the leader of the GOP.
“President Trump is a moderate in our movement. You’re going to pine in future years that you wish Donald Trump was around,” Steve Bannon said in his prediction.
Bannon also said that the most significant fissure between the GOP is between establishment figures and defenders of President Trump who believe Biden unfairly won the 2020 election.
“One of the litmus tests is… not just President Trump, but also particularly the stealing of the 2020 election,” Bannon said.
“That is a fundamental tenant of this movement.”
“By the way, they made it all about Trump. This movement is ascendant and is going to go on long after Donald Trump,” he said.
“It’s only going to get more powerful and broader.”

Following the program, Bannon and Kari Lake mocked interviewer Tim Miller for “dressing like a 13-year-old.”
Writing on X, Lake said her interview with Miller would have gone more smoothly if he had just asked “honest questions” instead of attempting to bait her.
Meanwhile, Trump is continuing to surge in the polls.
As The Daily Fetched reported last week, a new poll showed Trump’s growing approval rating among black voters visibly shocked CNN hosts and an assembled panel during a segment.
The panel reacted to the New York Times/Siena College poll, which showed Trump leading President Biden in four of five swing states.
Further, the poll highlighted a low confidence gap regarding the ability to handle the economy, with an overwhelming majority of voters preferring Trump.
However, the worst for Biden was his approval rating among Black voters, which ruffled the feathers at CNN.
According to the poll, 22 percent of black voters favor Trump, marking a massive spike from the 2020 election when he had just 10 percent of the black vote.
