Bannon plans foundation to fuel far-right movements in Europe

Bannon plans foundation to fuel far-right movements in Europe

Voter turnout in European Parliament elections historically is low, and Bannon said he and his organization hope that by mobilizing local anti-EU groups they can elect a large enough group of Members of the European Parliament to disrupt and even shut down the Parliament and the European Commission.

Kassam said The Movement is "our clearing house for the populist, nationalist movement in Europe".

He is also going to launch a think tank called "The Movement" which will provide advice on messaging, data targeting, and research, according to the Daily Beast.

The former chief strategist to USA president Donald Trump has also met the UK's Nigel Farage, Germany's AfD leader Alice Weidel, Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orban, and other far-right European Union politicians in recent months.

The 64-year-old former banker claims European integration is coming to an end.

The Movement's headquarters, which are expected to be in Brussels, is likely to have fewer than 10 full-time staff ahead of the 2019 elections, after which it will expand if its impact is judged to have been a success.

Plans for United States far-right figure Steve Bannon to exert his influence on the European parliament's 2019 election have been met with alarm across Germany's political spectrum. "He's evil but he's brilliant".

Asked if he would sacrifice his hopes of a fifth Tour crown to help Thomas, Froome replied: "Yes". Thomas added: "Dumoulin and Froomey have done the Giro, so you just don't know what will happen".

"People are starting to realise that the anti-establishment thing is kind of a luxury we can't afford right now", Bannon told The New York Times in May.

"I'm about winning. I'm about power", he told the Daily Beast.

The architect of Trump's nationalist-populist campaign and his election victory, White House chief strategist Steve Bannon was nicknamed the "Prince of Darkness" and the "Shadow President".

In a radio interview with Nigel Farage, the former head of Britain's UKIP party, Bannon idealised Tommy Robinson last Sunday.

Bannon is believed to have lost the backing of the Mercers and he later stepped down from Breitbart.
