Andy Card: ‘Steve Bannon Is Driving a Wedge in the Republican Party and He’s Certainly Not Helping’ Trump

‘And if Steve Bannon is trying to fracture the Republican Party, he is providing a great disservice to a president that he says he supports’

RUSH EXCERPT:

CARD: "Well, first of all, people should not be distracted by that which they have no control over. And they have no control over what the special prosecutor is doing. They have no control about what happens in a grand jury. And so I would say, try to find the discipline not to preoccupied with what everybody else in Washington and even the United States is talking about, and focus on your job. The president only has so many days that he’s president, and every day is precious. Help the president do the job that day. So show up, do the job that day, say thank you very much for yesterday, and focus on your job that day. Don’t worry about tomorrow. And that’s the discipline that I would try to bring to the white House. With regard to what’s happening in the Republican Party, yes, I don’t like what Steve Bannon is doing. Steve Bannon is driving a wedge in the Republican Party and he’s certainly not helping president Trump. This is the last thing that President Trump needs is to deal with a fracture in the Republican Party. And if Steve Bannon is trying to fracture the Republican Party, he is providing a great disservice to a president that he says he supports. This is not helping president Trump."
