Steve Bannon: Trump’s tariff threats are working at the border


EFFORT IN 2020. MY FIRST GUESS IS THE FORMER WHITE HOUSE CHIEF STRATEGIST STEVE BANNON ALSO JOINING US FROM THE BORDER STATE OF ARIZONA STEVE, IT’S GREAT TO HAVE YOU THIS MORNING THANKS SO MUCH FOR JOINING US.>> MARIA THANKS FOR HAVING ME ON. MARIA: YOU’VE BEEN DOING A LOT AT THE BORDER. FIRST OFF GIVE US YOUR TAKE ON WHERE WE ARE IN THIS CRISIS. WE HAVE SEEN A REAL IMPROVEMENT IN THE LAST TWO MONTHS GIVEN THE PRESIDENT’S PARTNERSHIP WITH MEXICO. HOW DO YOU SEE IT FROM ON THE GROUND?>> WELL LISTEN IT’S A CRISIS BUT PRESIDENT TRUMP, I THINK, HIS ACTIONS ARE STARTING TO HAVE A HUGE IMPACT. HE’S GOT THE DEAL WITH GUATEMALA THE SAFE HARBOR OF THE SAFE NATION DEAL WHICH IS TO LET’S SORT THE PROBLEM OUT OF THE ASYLUM SEEKERS DOWN THERE, IN THE NORTHERN TRIANGLE AND ALSO WORKED WITH MEXICO ON THE MIGRANT PROTECTION PROGRAM, NOW THAT THEY GO BACK TO MEXICO TO WAIT AND IN ADDITION, THIS THREAT OF THE TARIFFS REALLY GOT AND I CAN TELL YOU BECAUSE I’VE BEEN DOWN IN THE SOUTHERN BORDER FOR ABOUT THE LAST THREE OR FOUR WEEKS HE’S GOT THE MEXICAN MARINES AND THE MEXICAN MILITARY UP ON THE NORTHERN BORDER TO STOP THE CARTELS THIS IS ALL ABOUT THE CARTELS. THEY CONTROL THE BORDER ON THE MEXICAN SIDE. WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP IS DOING IS TRYING TO BREAK THE BACK OF THE CARTELS AND NOW LIKE YOUR PREVIOUS GUEST SAID FROM A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO OR LAST WEEK GETTING THAT DEFENSE MONEY THAT 2.8 BILLION PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THE ARMY CORE OF ENGINEERS ARE STARTING TO BUILD A NEW WALL AND REPLACE OLD WALL ON THE SOUTHERN BORDER SO I THINK THINGS ARE HEADING IN A POSITIVE DIRECTION, BUT THAT’S BECAUSE PRESIDENT TRUMP HAVING FOUGHT EVERYBODY FROM CONGRESS TO THE MEDIA TO THE PROGRESSIVE LEFT IS NOW IN THE CARTELS IS REALLY STARTING TO SEE REAL TRACTION. MARIA: YOU MAKE A GOOD POINT ABOUT THE DRUG LORDS WHEN WE TOOK THE SHOW TO THE BORDER A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO I WAS STUNNED AT WHAT I WITNESSED IN TERMS OF CHILDREN BEING PUT IN THESE DANGEROUS SITUATIONS AND WHAT I WAS TOLD BY THE BORDER PATROL PEOPLE, THERE WERE KIDS CROSSING AND THIS PICTURE HERE OF AN EIGHT AND 10-YEAR-OLD THEY LOST THEIR MOTHER, AND WE WERE JUST SHOCKED AT WHAT WAS GOING ON IN TERMS OF THESE KIDS BEING PUT INTO THESE POSITIONS, BECAUSE SOME OF THEM ARE WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT THEIR FAMILY, AND THEY WERE RENTED TO THESE PEOPLE SO THAT THEY CAN LOOK LIKE FAMILIES, BECAUSE THE LOOPHOLES ALLOW THEM IN, BUT THE ISSUE IS IS THAT ONCE YOU GET CLOSE TO THE BORDER, THE DRUG LORDS WANT TO SHAKE YOU DOWN AND SAY OKAY, YOU CAN’T GO THESE EXTRA FIVE STEPS UNTIL YOU GIVE US MONEY, SO IT REALLY IS A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION WITH THOSE DRUG LORDS.>> LOOK THESE CARTELS ARE VERY SOPHISTICATED MILITARY OPERATION THEY UNDERSTAND THAT THE HUMAN TRAFFICKING PART OF THIS, MARIA IS A HIGHER-MARGIN BUSINESS THAN EVEN THE DRUG TRAFFICKING AND THAT’S WHAT’S BEEN ALLOWED TO HAPPEN. PRESIDENT TRUMP IS TRYING TO STOP IT BUT REMEMBER THE WHOLE PURPOSE OF THE WALL IS TO GET PEOPLE TO GO THROUGH THE PORTS OF ENTRY WHERE THE RULE OF LAW TAKES PLACE AND YOU CAN SORT ALL OF THIS SITUATION OUT. THAT’S WHAT THE SOUTHERN WALL IS SO IMPORTANT. IT’S NOT A TOTAL SOLUTION BUT IT’S THE BEGINNING OF A SOLUTION , BUT YOU’RE SEE SEEING RIGHT NOW AND I THINK MEXICO AND GUATEMALA AND OTHERS UNDERSTAND THE THREAT THAT THESE CARTELS POSE TO THE CITIZENS OF NORTHERN MEXICO, TO THE CITIZENS OF GUATEMALA AND THE CITIZENS OF THE BORDER TOWNS OF THE UNITED STATES PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS TAKEN PRETTY DRAMATIC ACTION. MARIA: YOU HAVE BEEN TRYING TO WORK WITH PRIVATE PROPERTY OPENERS TO BUILD WALL WHERE YOU CAN AWAY FROM THE GOVERNMENTS EFFORTS RIGHT? TELL US WHAT YOU’RE DOING, STEVE>> WELL THE ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS, REMEMBER PRESIDENT TRUMP IS BUILDING LIKE 1,200 MILES WORTH OF WALL AND THERE ARE CERTAIN SECTORS WHERE THE ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS HAVE DEEMED IT TOO DIFFICULT AND WE’VE BUILT OUR FIRST AMOUNT OF WALL ACTUALLY DOWN IN EL PASO SECTOR, IN THE MOST DANGEROUS PART WHICH IS THE BORDER PATROL POSTS THE MOST DANGEROUS PART REALLY GOING UP THE SIDE OF A MOUNTAIN. WE HAVE STOPPED THE ENCOURAGEMENT 100% SINCE WE BUILT THE WALL. I’M DOWN IN ARIZONA THIS PRIVATE GROUP AS WE BUILD A WALL THAT THE HERO, THE AIR FORCE VETERAN, HAS FOUND THAT WE’VE RAISED ABOUT $25 MILLION I’M DOWN IN ARIZONA WE’RE IN THE RIO GRANDE VALLEY WE’VE HAD ABOUT 30 DIFFERENT PRIVATE LAND OWNERS APPROACH US NOW, THEY SEEN OUR WALL IN NEW MEXICO AND ACTUALLY HELP THEM, THESE ARE AREAS WHERE THE ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS HAS DETERMINED THESE ARE NICHES. WE’RE A NICHE PLAYER, PRESIDENT TRUMP IS BUILDING LONG RUNS OF WALL ON THE SOUTHERN BORDER RIGHT NOW. MARIA: THIS OF COURSE IS A CAMPAIGN PROMISE THAT THE PRESIDENT IS KEEPING. I WANT TO ASK YOU ABOUT THE STATE OF PLAY FOR 2020 GOING INTO THIS INCREDIBLE ELECTION THAT WE HAVE, UP UNTIL JUST ABOUT A MONTH AGO, A LOT OF THE PRESIDENT’S SKEPTICS, OR THE DEMOCRATIC HOPEFULS HAVE BEEN CALLING IT A MANUFACTURING CRISIS. YOU’VE SEEN THE DEMOCRAT CONTENDERS. WHO DO YOU THINK IS MOST POISED TO BE A REAL THREAT TO PRESIDENT TRUMP?>> I SAID THIS LAST WEEK, MARIA , I DON’T SEE ANYBODY ON THAT STAGE RIGHT NOW THAT CAN TAKE PRESIDENT TRUMP ONE ON ONE. I PRIDE MYSELF, HE’S CALLING HIS STAR PUPIL, HIS TOP PUPIL I’VE BEEN STEADY STUDYING THIS THOROUGHLY AND I DON’T CARE WHAT THE POLLS SAY ON BIDEN. JOE BIDEN IS NOT A STANDUP TO DONALD TRUMP. HE’S WEAK ON CHINA, YOU’VE SEEN WHAT HE’S SAID THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS. IF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY THINKS THAT JOE BIDEN IS GOING TO BE ABLE TO GO ON WITH DONALD TRUMP IN THE GENERAL ELECTION CAMPAIGN THEY’VE GOT ANOTHER THING COMING HE WILL RUN THE TABLES ON BIDEN. NOW THE SECOND TO YOUR CANDIDATE S OR THE OTHER CANDIDATES LIKE KAMALA HARRIS, ELIZABETH WARREN I JUST HAVEN’T SEEN IT YET. I HAVEN’T SEEN IT ON THAT STAGE AND I CERTAINLY HAVEN’T SEEN IT IN IOWA WHERE I THINK THEY ARE TAKING A VERY UNSOPHISTICATED APPROACH TO CHINA. I JUST HAVEN’T SEEN IT. I DON’T BELIEVE AND I SAY THIS I’M NOT SO SURE THAT HIS OPPONENT HAS EVEN DECLARED YET. I THINK YOU GOT TO WATCH GUYS LIKE HILLARY CLINTON, BLOOMBERG, MICHELLE OBAMA, A WHOLE WRATH OF POT THAT LOOKS VERY CLOSELY TO SEE BECAUSE THE DEMOCRATS NUMBER ONE FOCUS IS TO DEFEAT DONALD TRUMP, SO I’M NOT SO SURE THERE’S A CANDIDATE UP THERE, CERTAINLY NOBODY ON THAT STAGE TAKES ON TRUMP ONE ON ONE. MARIA: SO YOU THINK MICHELLE OBAMA, HILLARY CLINTON OR MICHAEL BLOOMBERG CAN STILL COME INTO THIS RACE?>> OH, I THINK THERE’S GOING TO BE AMPLE OPPORTUNITY TO COME INTO THIS RACE LATER IN NOVEMBER , DECEMBER, EVEN WHEN THE PRIMARY STARTS. MAYBE A CANDIDATE CAN’T WIN THE PRIMARY SEASON BUT THEY CAN TAKE IT INTO CONVENTION. LOOK, THE DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO BE VERY FOCUSED ON ONE THING. THIS IS WHY TOM STYRE JUMPED IN SO LATE TWO WEEKS AGO. THE DEMOCRATS ARE FOCUSED ON DEFEATING DONALD TRUMP. THEY REALIZE UNLIKE THE REPUBLICAN ESTABLISHMENT, HE’S A HISTORIC FIGURE AND A TRANSFORMATIVE PRESIDENT. THEY WANT TO JUST LIKE IN 2018 THEY ARE TOTALLY FOCUSED LIKE ON THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, THEY ARE FOCUSED ON DEFEATING TRUMP. THAT’S WHERE THEY WANT TO GO AND I’VE GOT TO TELL YOU, IN THE

  2. This guy needs to jump off the pipe, this is 2019 not 2016. Hillery is not interested in 2020. Immigration cartels don't excist, coyote s do they are hired guilds by the migrants, if your going to sell propaganda to maga heads for their vote, stay sober and keep facts straight. Wonder what Trump promised him for his pitch.

  3. The Chinese under the CCP's rule are completely living under the horror. After the college students are disappeared, the organs are removed. The primary school students are sexually abused. The poor are useless because they don't look down on the hospital. They are pleading or jumping off the building. The investigative reporters are being arrested for investigating the truth. Prisons, there will be no criticism of the government in their networks because the vocalists will be arrested in the first place.

  4. Yeah, let's watch Fux news every day and think that it's okay to idolize a POTUS that is a racist, pays off porn stars to be elected, begs for Russian tampering with the elections, and blatantly obstructs justice. Fux News succeeds in showing the world that the USA is a ship of fools begging to be reduced to its lowest common denominator— the Trump base that apparently populates half of this country. Yeah, thanks to the electoral college for overturning the popular vote and the mongoloids that comprise the Trump base. Watch and refer to this post as Iran and North Korea do the obvious and China and Russia take sides inciting WWIII. Oh, look at that Dow Jones average then.

  5. Bannon is so correct, Im expecting a Hillary Mooshelle Obama ticket, or Mooshelle Barry as VP ticket, all completely legal. How scary is that potential…

  6. remember Steve, we are still told that there is global warming !!! we have 11 months of snow in western canada, snow today and yesterday, august 10th 2019, we had snow till july 15th …so where is the global warming? please cover the truth on this first then tell us how things are working and the direction…..too many lies and reality proves otherwise.

  7. "Do you want to work for neo-Nazis? No? Then ucking stop. Please be more discerning and less knee-jerk about who and what you spend your time defending. Don’t rush in at the first waving of an appealing dog whistle, be smart and don’t do a neo-Nazi’s dirty work for them."

  8. What is this drivel of a title and content? How delusional do you got to be to fall for this rhetorical maze of a conversation.
    So about those tariffs escalating a trade war with china?
    * Let me tell you about this wall we say we've built so you think it's finished when it's not , and how it's actually about the drug war because the cartel will then have to go through the port of entry because ladders are only made in murica"
    Who falls for this bullspit?

  9. People are so stupid. Why do people continually believe the utter crap that comes out of politicians mouths. Trump is a liar and so are most Republicans. So are democrats.
    Politicians lie to you. They always have. They tell you what you want to hear, and people are so gullible, so stupid they believe them and support them. You have been manipulated by scumbags. You become part of the problem, your party political bias becomes entrenched and you will defend your chosen liar with your life. Wake up. Trust No one, believe nothing, Question everything.

  10. Sorry mr Bannon when there's a will there's way just enjoy the moment, unless Americans lose their affinity for drugs there will be no way of stopping them. No matter how high the wall is built, you might of heard of tunnels, maybe not .as far as am concerned Mexico didn't pay for it so much for the campaign promise of Mr trump.

  11. I have a 25’ wall on my ranch withmotion detect and electric barbed wire on the top at the Mexican border and we shoot first warning shots and since I had it install 2 years ago no one has compromised it yet, it is 1200 feet long. If they get past it which is unlikely they will die and be used as pig food

  12. Trumps heart is in the right place! For US Citizens and for the United States! TRUMP /PENCE 2020🇺🇸👍

  13. Schwarzenegger should change to the democrats and run for president 🙂 (of course, there is this little issue with place of birth…)

  14. Trump is LORD. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏻🙏🏻

    Bernie Sandwich is a false prophet. Pray for forgiveness of you illegal actions, you will be deported to hell.

  15. Trying to stop Mexican drug cartel. The biggest cartel is CIA that brings tons opium, they control media anyway.

  16. Illegal aliens who "rent" children to cross the border, should get a BLOOD TEST to determine if they are the real parents. If not, the THEY should be charged with KIDNAPPING and HUMAN TRAFFICKING, then put away for DECADES. IF — that happens, THEN — child trafficking would drop to ZERO real fast.

  17. Ate you kidding me? I WILL NOT VOTE, EVER AGAIN. MY VOTE MEANS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. THE SHILL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ACTUALLY HAVING A SAY, IN THE GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS, IS LUDICROUS. AT LEAST I STILL GET TO SAY THAT, PUBLICLY. BIG CHANGES COMING. PRAY.

  18. And I know they're coming just to be save the democrats because without them believe me or not they cannot win the election and no doubt about it because I know that former president Obama has a lots of people behind him and none of us cannot denied that and that's the truth, but anyway we're president Donald Trump going to be still here even we have problems with Facebook and trying to kicked a lots of president Trump supporters out of our polls but anyway our Great God with us.

  19. What a joke Michelle Obama’ very lo IQ running for president another looser like her queerish husband give me a brake

  20. STEVE, WISH WE 79 YR. OLDS, COULD HELP BUILD THE BORDER WALL FOR AMERICA & DONALD!!! THE WALL WILL FORCE LEGAL ENTRY!!! NO DRUGS!!!
    NO HUMAN TRAFFITING!!! NO/LESS SICKNESS!!! MORE TALENTS/SKILLED MIGRANTS [email protected] ENTRY POINTS!!!
    AKA, wtkjr.!!!

  21. Is the GOP beginning to Splinter? Is it a little tough to accept a Racist President? White sheets for everyone !!!

  22. How …Drug War, … Just Anoying Issue, This Goliat Fight With Human, ….. What Happen Just Inocent People Be Victim, …. God Bless All, …. Cherrio.☁👍👍👍🌠🌟🌠.

  23. You need to build the wall too. From European perspective, the wall is the sensible thing to do, given how your border area leaks. If you keep just ignoring the issue, its just gonna get worse. And worse.

  24. Trump 2020 and no way we the people well put up with the Clinton s or Obama after what we have seen they will be vote out we had enough of them

  25. Bannon is logical and intelligent and understands what's going on. This is why the left and MSM absolutely and completely despise him so much. Yes, the Dem platform is defeat Trump at any cost rather than what we can do for the Amercan people. Seeking power for the sake of power. Most Americans understand this.

  26. YEP THE REAL DEAL IS ////////// Demos are working closely with there partners the Cartels //////// THANK GOD FOR TRUMP

  27. No, they’re not. 110 degree heat in the desert in Texas in the hotest three months of the year has worked. It’s always like this. Illegal crossings always go down this time of year.

  28. I just imported some stuff from China and I paid the 25% duty. I don't see how that hurts China. It's not easy getting set up manufacturing over there and you can't just up and flip everything over to another country. It is just a big tax is the way I see it and I don't think any of that money will come to help make small business more able to produce stuff over here competitively.

  29. Mike pence visited Mexico holding portal with a reporter where they had 90 people in a cage design 40. For over 45days. They they smelled and could not lie down. Deny showers and even toothbrush. Good luck with your new job.

  30. President Trump is THE BEST PRESIDENT OF THE USA!!!!!, BEST TEAM!!!!, "RED"!!!. Keeping ,"AMERICA SAFE", AND AMERICAN CITIZENS!!!, FIRST!, No 1

  31. The other presidents would never have even tried Obama, Bush, Clinton, and Bush Sr didn't do a thing. MAGA MAGA MAGA MAGA MAGA

  32. I wonder who's side just
    Who side this man is ON !!! You went away to wear Paris ,,, now you're back,, I don't know maybe you stay low profile for a reason,,,
    This lady who is interviewing you her voice is annoying,,,, it's like listening to a chalkboard
    Mexican children Guatemala children these kids are what is done to them is horrific,,,

  33. If *ANY of the democrats in EXISTENCE TODAY , think they MAY have a chance to BECAME elected , they must be on DRUGS . TOTALLY DELUSIONAL.//// DO THEY STILL BELIEVED , IN SANTA CLAUS ????? 🤪😱🦄

  34. Family members in Mexico love our President, Donald Trump, and; wish he was their President. God Bless America – God Bless our President!!!!!

  35. Democrats are in collusion with the cartels as I watch those children become pawns due to left wing ideology.

  36. I’m from Pakistan, but this issue in particular has surprised me. I was watching the news like : “Hey look – there are people in America that don’t think a border wall is a bright idea!” Seems like people over there that don’t like Trump will just oppose him on any issue they can. Even if it is totally sensible.

  37. Looks like Steve has gathered the evi den ce from over the seas in a place that sounds like you crane, It aly …and is back on the campaign trail again

  38. I take my hat off, to Steve Bannon for his continued support of President Trump, and for his efforts in helping, to solve the problem down, at the border. Thank you Steve Bannon!
