Steve Bannon: Trump’s Jerusalem Move Was A Gift To The Religious Right

Former White House strategist and Breitbart News executive Steve Bannon explained on Breitbart’s daily radio show that President Trump’s decision to relocate the United States embassy to Jerusalem was directly motivated by evangelical Christian activists who supported Trump during the 2016 election.

Ken Klukowski joined Bannon this morning on “Breitbart News Daily” to discuss the move, which as Peter explained was decided on against the objections from many American allies, senior White House advisers, and Christian leaders in Jerusalem. Bannon explained the decision was made to appease the evangelical voter base that helped elect Trump.

“Isn’t this really showing the muscle of the evangelical community? Because President Trump, one of the reasons he did this, besides the reason that he knew was the smart thing to do and the right thing to do, was the fact that his base, right, particularly that part that’s evangelical Right, which is a huge part of his base, really has been demanding this for quite a while,” Bannon said.

Klukowski agreed, “In that regard, Steve, it’s a matter of pure math and percentages,” and went on to note how many more evangelical Christian voters were in the United States as compared to Jewish voters.
