‘They’re a great company’: Trump’s former chief strategist says ‘they’re a very good company’


President Donald Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon has told CNBC that he thinks “the biggest risk” to the GOP is that “the Republican Party is not really a Republican party.”

Speaking to CNBC’s “Squawk Box” program on Monday, Bannon said that the GOP could be “going down the wrong path.”

“It’s a very different party, but they are a very, very good brand,” Bannon said.

“I think they’re a company that is a great, great company.

They’re a brand that’s going to sell.

They’ve been sold a long time.”

The president has been criticized by Republicans for not doing enough to rein in a growing number of controversial comments by Bannon.

Trump has also been criticized for not taking aggressive action against White House adviser Kellyanne Conway who was seen on television making disparaging remarks about Trump during a news conference.
