Steve Bannon tells Nigel Farage that while Theresa May "seems perfectly nice enough," she misunderstood Donald Trump when he told her to 'sue the EU'.
In his interview with Nigel Farage, Steve Bannon said that he thought the Prime Minister misunderstood Donald Trump when he said to 'sue the EU'.
"I mean this is the most, first off Brexit was the biggest event in democracy in the history of the British people; the vote to get your independence back," he said.
"It's a huge thing and should have been taken very seriously, of get on with it.
"She said that Trump told her to sue the EU but she said in such a way is like to not basically get what he was saying.
He continued: "What Trump is saying when he uses litigation, because Donald Trump is very litigious.
"Litigation is a weapon, it's a tool it's when you go in hard and I think what Donald Trump told her that is a deal like this has to be done hard, it's got to be done fast, it's got be clean, and it can take a lot of time.
"The most important thing he said I thought was deals that take a long time have two aspects.
"Number one, they normally don't get done. And number two, if they do get done they're normally bad and tough to fulfil because you get so much so much back and forth."
The former strategist also said that he was "impressed with Boris Johnson".
Nigel asked: "Will Boris use the knife tomorrow? Will he try to get rid of this Prime Minister?"
Bannon replied: "If he's to have a future, and to be a leader, he's got to go in there and say 'hey, I've got an alternative'."
"Middle England understand all kind of complexity, it's all kind of details of the deal but what they wanted was very simple - they wanted out, they wanted their independence."
"And will Boris give them independence?" Nigel asked.
"We'll have to see," Bannon replied.
