U.S political strategist and media executive Steve Bannon, who helped mastermind the campaign strategy that saw Donald Trump elected President of the United States, is setting up a non-profit foundation in Europe to boast populist movements and politicians across the continent The Guardian reports.
Bannon has been travelling across Europe offering support and advice to Eurosceptic and nationalist parties. He also met with anti-establishment figures including the man behind Brexit, Nigel Farage, in the UK and Marine Le Pen, President of the French National Rally party.
Bannon has been an outspoken supporter of Brexit and has encouraged other countries to secede from the EU, which he has harshly criticised.
Calling his plan simply “The movement” Mr Bannon seeks to begin his anti-establishment revolution next May with the European parliamentary elections the UK Telegraph reported.
The Movement will seek to counter the influence of multi-billionaire financier George Soros, who’s Open Societies Foundation, has poured tens of billions of dollars into liberal causes and promoting globalism as well as open borders the Washington Examiner reported.
