Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is urging his former boss President Donald Trump to hold off on the State of the Union address until after he is acquitted by the Senate following his impeachment by Congress.
Bannon, who hosts the podcast War Room: Impeachment, believes that postponing the address would hurt the efforts of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). He believes that Pelosi is deliberately stalling the impeachment proceedings, in part, to hold it over Trump’s head during the State of the Union.
“Two reasons Nancy Pelosi slow-walked this: One was to find more evidence because they didn’t have it and they’re afraid the guns are going to be turned back on them for a weak case. The second was to make sure she could bigfoot President Trump’s State of the Union. That’s why she slow-walked this whole thing,” Bannon said to reporter Maria Bartiromo while appearing on Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures.
“The reason [Trump] called for an expanded witness list was he understands that the jury is not the Senate, the jury is the American people, but the audience is the world. They’re watching on the streets of Taipei, they’re watching in Hong Kong, they’re watching in Tehran, they’re watching to see if the established order can back down Donald Trump,” he added.
Bannon believes that Trump should not proceed with his address until he is formally exonerated in the “trial of the century,” and then the President can make the State of the Union about his vindication following a witch hunt that has lingered on for many years.
“He has to be acquitted; he will be acquitted and exonerated. That should happen, and then he should do the State of the Union,” Bannon said.
In the interview, Bannon also praised President Trump for his foreign policy moves, and his willingness to project American strength throughout the world against malign actors.
“This is the Trump Doctrine, whether it’s in Hong Kong, or at the ballot box in Taiwan, or the streets of Tehran,” Bannon said. “President Trump has stood up to the Chinese Communist Party, the dictators in Beijing, he stood up to the mullahs in Tehran.”
“What President Trump did is go against the established order,” Bannon added. “The permanent political class’s foreign policy was to appease these dictators, to appease Beijing, and that’s why saw the rise of China. To appease the mullahs in Iran, and that’s why you saw this expansion of Iran with Hezbollah throughout the Middle East.”
Bannon believes that Trump’s “economic war” against the globalists will ultimately pay massive dividends for Americans who want to take their country back from the “permanent political class.”
“Donald Trump said, ‘This is not going to happen on my watch,'” Bannon continued. “He’s taken a very Churchillian stand, like Churchill took in the 1930s. It’s the permanent political class, and the John Kerrys, the Hillary Clintons, the foreign policy establishment, the Neville Chamberlains, they were the appeasers. He went to economic war.”
The State of the Union address is scheduled to take place on Feb. 4 unless Trump decides to postpone the event as Bannon has suggested.

LISTEN: Mike Bloomberg Joked About Droning His Political Opponents in Leaked Audio
Bloomberg was speaking at an exclusive Goldman Sachs crowd of political elites.
Michael Bloomberg joked about using Predator drones to dispatch his political opponents at a Goldman Sachs event in 2016, stating that they’d be used on a “list of everybody that’s annoyed me or screwed me for the last 74 years.”
Listen to the tasteless and vengeful remarks from the authoritarian billionaire here:
Bloomberg was speaking at a Goldman Sachs event held at New York’s Yankee Stadium. Audio of his remarks was leaked to the public by a former Goldman Sachs employee disenchanted with the controversial financial institution.
A Bloomberg spokesperson admitted that the drone remarks were “inappropriate” in a statement on the audio to CNN.
During his remarks at the Goldman Sachs-sponsored event, Bloomberg declared his loyalty to major banking and Wall Streets financial institutions. He said that his hypothetical presidential campaign would seek to “defend the banks,” and that Goldman Sachs’ Wall Street elites were “my peeps.”
Bloomberg had been considering an independent bid for the presidency in 2016, and appears to have been promoting the idea to powerful Wall Street donors in his Yankee Stadium remarks. That campaign didn’t happen, with the former New York City mayor falling in line with Hillary Clinton. Now, as socialist Senator Bernie Sanders appears favorably positioned to win the Democratic nomination for President, Bloomberg has unshelved the plan, with a goal of maintaining the establishment order of the Democratic Party.
The remarks are the latest in a string of questionable old quotes the ultrabillionaire former Mayor has been lambasted for. Bloomberg has called a father and son who died of heroin overdoses a “bad family” during a conversation about the opioid epidemic, and referred to farmers and machinists as simpletons.
