The former White House strategist said that hate groups have “no place” in public life.
Former White House chief strategist and Breitbart executive Steve Bannon told CBS News’ Charlie Rose that groups like the Ku Klux Klan, Neo-Nazis, and Neo-Confederates have “no room in American politics” in a preview of his “60 Minutes” interview, set to air Sunday.
Bannon also defended President Trump’s message on keeping confederate monuments. “Where does this end?” Bannon asked, echoing Trump’s public remarks. “Does it end in taking down the Washington monument?”
Rose pointed out that the president received criticism for not more forcefully condemning the hate groups in Charlottesville.
The former chief strategist argued that those in Charlottesville gathering to “peacefully” support or oppose confederate monuments had a First Amendment right to be there, and then Bannon criticized hate groups for their “awful” ideology.
Returning to the monuments, Bannon made his previous point again, asking, “Where does it end?”
“Does it end in taking down the Washington monument? Does it end in taking down Mount Rushmore? Does it end in taking Churchill’s bust out of the Oval Office?” he asked.
