Steve Schmidt: Steve Bannon and Stephen Miller Have an ‘Absolutely Radical World View’

‘It’s a departure from the bipartisan consensus that existed from Harry Truman through Barack Obama’

EXCERPT:

SCHMIDT: "Well, it’s an absolutely radical world view, Chris, and it’s a departure from the bipartisan consensus that existed from Harry Truman through Barack Obama about the centrality importance of the United States as the anchor nation in a liberal global pluralistic world order that was built after the catastrophe of the Second World War where 80 million people were killed and Steve Bannon is hostile to that global order. David Petraeus was testifying today on Capitol Hill and he talked about the necessity of preserving that global order, that it’s not self-sustaining, that it maintains itself through American commitment and so the notion that you saw with President Trump saying things like 'Mexico has beaten us to a pulp,' it’s an absurdity, of course, when you give consideration to those words."
