Donald Trump’s former chief strategist Stephen Bannon had reportedly said that the president wouldn’t finish his complete term, but on Saturday Bannon boasted Trump and said he would “win with 400 electoral votes in 2020.”
“The populist, nationalist, conservative revolt that’s going on, that drove Donald Trump to victory, that drove Judge [Roy] Moore to victory, that will drive 15 candidates to victory in 2018, and I hate to break it Graydon Carter and the good folks at Vanity Fair, but yes, President Trump is not only going to finish this term, he’s going to win with 400 electoral votes in 2020,” Bannon said during a speech at the Values Voter Summit in Washington.

Bannon was responding to a Vanity Fair report that stated that the former chief strategist said Trump only had a 30 percent chance of finishing his current term in office.
Bannon, who returned to his post at Breitbart after leaving the White House, also said during his speech that he would “get to the progressive Democrats,” but said that “right now it’s a season of war against the GOP establishment.”
