(Republicaninformer.com)- Steve Bannon, one of Donald Trump’s most devoted allies, expressed his utter disbelief that the former president’s “major announcement” turned out to be a line of $99 digital trading cards, and he called for the idea’s originator to be fired.
“I can’t do this anymore,” the former White House Chief Strategist said Thursday. “He’s one of the greatest presidents in history, but I have to tell you, [the people responsible for this] should be fired right now.”
Bannon, who in October received a four-month prison sentence after being found guilty of contempt of Congress, expressed his exasperation at the lackluster reveal on Right Side Broadcasting Network.
He acknowledged that he still regarded Trump as one of the country’s greatest presidents but that using digital trading cards to launch his 2024 campaign was a step too far.
Trump has been losing ground to Ron DeSantis in Republican polls, is dealing with a string of legal issues, and is still recouping from his Mar-a-Lago dinner with Kanye West and Nick Fuentes.
Bannon blamed business partners or communications staffers who he believes pushed these NFTs on Trump in an interview with fellow Trump White House advisors Dr. Sebastian Gorka and Steve Cortes on his show “The War Room.”
Bannon, who continues to support Trump, said the NFTs gave the impression that he wasn’t taking the campaign seriously.
Gorka nodded in agreement with Bannon’s remarks.
Gorka declared, “Whoever wrote that, that pitch, should be fired.” Anyone who came up with that idea should never be involved in anything, including making the presidential napkins for Mar-a-Lago.”
He said if you want to do this kind of stuff, have a peon do it. The president, however, “shouldn’t be involved in this.”
Just a few weeks after announcing his intention to run for president once more in 2024, Trump had his supporters on the edge of their seats when he promised a “major announcement.”
There was talk that it might be a move that would upset the Republican primaries or the announcement of a rally after a break since the midterm elections.
Despite the excitement, it turned out to be a line of digital trading cards he created that cost $99 each and featured him dressing up as various imagined characters, such as Superman and a cowboy with a hunting rifle.
“I think they’ll be gone very quickly!”
Hopefully, after this stunt, he’s not talking about his supporters.
