Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon had a very public falling out with Trump last year. — Reuters picPARIS, March 10 — Former White House strategist Steve Bannon, a champion of Donald Trump’s “America First” agenda, will address the party congress of France’s far-right National Front today, a senior official of the French anti-immigrant party said.
Bannon, an American nationalist who ran the right-wing Breitbart News, was among Trump’s closest aides during the 2016 US election campaign, the presidential transition and his first months in office.
But the pair had a bitter public falling out and Bannon was fired by the White House last August, though he continued to speak with Trump and tried to promote the president’s agenda.
National Front leader Marine Le Pen will meet Bannon at her party’s convention in the French city of Lille on Saturday, her partner Louis Aliot said in a tweet.
