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

  1. I'M GLAD TO SEE STEVE BANNON, HE'S GOT SUCH AN INSIGHT OF PRESIDENT TRUMP AND CAN SHARE WITH US PRESIDENT TRUMP'S ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND AGENDAS. It's good to take some of the reporting to us for our President.

  2. Fortunate for us…the dems are focused on defeating Trump… Which is inane…
    Nobody follows a leader who goes after the negative.
    This is not a marching song…"my people, here's what we do not want…"
    A leader says. "Here's what we are fighting for. Here's why we sacrifice. We are fighting for this future goal."
    The future goal is not to eliminate Trump.
    They are…fortunately…missing the big picture.
    Trump is such a distracting element that they can't focus on anything good.
    The blue light attracts the moth… Zzzith!
    No more moth.

  3. Pres. Trump "trumps" the Democrats again! He is "Building That Wall!" He has testicular fortitude! He has Huevos Rancheros with Pico de Gallo hot sauce on them! Ha! All I can say is KJV Psalm 118:23; "This is the LORD'S doing ! It is marvelous in our eyes ! They can't touch this ! Pres. Trump is a true "Blues Brother." He is on; "a Mission from GOD." Prime Minister Netanyahu has bestowed the title; "Righteous Man" to Pres. Trump for benefiting the people of Israel. This is a rare prestigious Honor. Pres. Trump 2020 !!!! Que vaya con DIOS !

  4. he received clinton care package like all the other.s that was found dead that had dope on them ,rest well in hell epstein

  5. It was suicide. Stop with that. Officially start calling it THE BEGINNING OF A PRIVATE BURAIL . An if you meddle to much into it, one will be arranged for you also. An you thought the MAFIA was bad. Heck these pro’s have been doing this longer than they existed, an consider them childish.

  6. The TARIFFS that Trump threatened on Mexico are working BECAUSE the Socialist AMLO WANTED the invasion of the US. Only after Trump said HE would CLOSE the southern Border.And the Mexicans knew he meant it.

  7. Amen Bannon Thanks for your part on our Southern wall ,we need truth Sayers and not the lieing Media or the other black markers .We are with you in our cause to fight for our Country no matter the color .We are America .

  8. Why cant we just napalm the opium, coca, and weed field. Dont even confront the Drug Cartel if at all necessary. Just start locating and burning their field.? So much technology and herbacides that can do the job.

  9. Did they really firm that in Arizona? It is 110 degree in Phoenix today. I doubted it would be much cooler down south. Yet, Steve was wearing a long sleeve with 2 undershirts.

  10. Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, Alan Dershowitz, Prince Andrew, Kent Starr, and Alex Acosta. All the power elite, and yet to be uncovered wealthy and influential people of world influence. Now Epstein commits suicide while under Barr's DOJ watch so the investigation can stop. Isn’t that convenient and yes, I include Trump, view case file Katie Johnson (Jane Doe) vs Epstein, Trump. Case 1:16-cv-04642 Southern District of New York. Now the FBI needs to go in and scrub the scene, so ends the scandal of the century with a whimper and gasp for breath, and to head this sham investigation is AG Barr who’s father got Epstein's career started at a prestigious private school, Barr's ongoing 2nd cover-up. Sad-

  11. Please share with me how are you guys doing economically in 2019 and what your prediction would be for the next year? Thank You in advance.

  12. I am so confused? Trump's NAFTA wasn't even been approved and it's working lol. Good to see Bannon has sobered up some lol.

  13. Come on wake up Trump is a reality TV personality and he’s turned the United States Presidency into the most popular reality show there is. On a positive note he is helping this channel and all the other news outlets make lots of money I still don’t know why he hasn’t exaggerated and bragged about that yet

  14. How come we dont have anyone asking idiots like Obama, Pelosi, Schumer etc. "Hey you said manufactured crisis and it is clearly an actual one. Why did you lie and say that?"

  15. Bannon: singing the Praises of his demagogue; please no one is listening, Trump sings his own praises every chance he gets: even over the bodies of dead Mexicans and their children.

  16. PBS is a another corrupted and unfair station ! cancel '' subscribe '' – it is enough negative news and not any positive action ! why people are so depressed ! it is time to learn to live free to sing happy songs, country music to be again on all stations to be American ! great country with a great President Trump.

  17. BANNON IS ON THE MONEY – HE WORKS LIKE A DEMON TO GET THE WORD OUT. HE HELPED 'WE BUILD THE WALL' RAISE FUNDS PROPERLY, THEY ONLY LOST 2ML CONTRIBUTORS. LOVE IT & HE IS RIGHT ABOUT THE AWFUL DEMS TOO.

  18. PRESIDENT TRUMP IS SMARTER THAN THOSE DEMOCRAPS. HE PLAY THE CHESS WONDERFULLY. GOD IS WITH HIM, THE CHOSEN ONE. THE TRUTH WILL BE REVEAL. NO NEED RO CONVINCE ANYONE. KEEP DOING THE GOOD JOB PRESIDENT TRUMP. YOUR LEAGUE IS YOUR FAMILY AND THE REST WHO SEE THE TRUTH.

  19. I REQUEST FOR THE PRESIDENT TO PULL OUT THE BANNING OF NOT OR PREVENTING CALIFORNIANS TO VOTE YOU IN OUR BALLOTTS. TAKE DOWN NEWSOM, AUNT PELOSI AND THE NEW HOT TAMALES ANERICAN-MEXICAN AG THAT'S MORE LEANING TO SOCIALISM, GET SOMEONE THAT REALLY WORKS FOR THE AMERICANS NOT HALFLY AMERICAN MORE IN HIS OWN PEOPLE. IF THEIR IN USA THEY SHOULD ACT AS AN AMERICAN AND EMBRACE AMERICAN. STOP HOMELESS. DO SOMETHING. WE HAVE LOTS OF FOOD, HOUSING, BUILD A PSYCHIATRICT WARD OR INSTITUTIONS FOR MENTAL CLIENTS FOR HELP, SO NO MORE KILLING. NOT THE GUN BANNING. FIX THE PROBLEM IN THE SOCIETY. NOT POLITICIANS CREATING MORE MUMBO JUMBO SENSELESS PROBLEMS.

  21. Good For Trump in getting the Wall started.
    After seeing the Democrats being Dis-functional, I'll NEVER vote for a Democrat Again.
    Kate Brown was the Icing on the Cake… Carbon Taxes without a Vote from the Citizens!

    You're a bunch of Lemmings.

  22. Build the wall stop this invasion! Anyone that steps over our border illegally is an Invader no matter what excuse they throw at us and especially if they bringing children with them they are criminals and child abusers!

  23. I am Chinese. I really say thank you to the Americans. This president is helping us. You should cherish it.

  24. Tariff's are not working is is evidenced with the plight of the farmers. Oh yes, Mr. Trump bought them off by adding another $12 billion to the national debt.

  25. When Trump is no longer in office the illegal immigrants I'll be coming through the Border , 100 times more than they are now

  26. Did people forget the DEA was exposed for helping el chapo ??? The DEA works with some cartels and the drug bust they do are from their enemies or other cartels they dont work with lol

  27. Don't talk about how many republicans are leaving office who stopped supporting Trump. Its okay Fox to leave out facts. Im watching your channel now all of you need to start watching the rest of the news. You have one channel there are many channels reporting facts.

  28. If the Cartels didn't see this comming, it's their own darn fault. Not the Authorities . This was bound to happen some day …this wall .

  29. Ban on a complete scumbag. Is anybody still interested in anything this moron has to say. Fox really scraping the barrel.

  30. Sure they are and they are working on the markets too right??? Idiot bannon. Tariffs were a bad idea na d that's why trump is now changing his mind. Laughing stock of the financial community.
