Donald Trump's former Chief Strategist believes that Tory backbencher Jacob Rees-Mogg is "one of the best thinkers in the Conservative movement on a global basis."

Steve Bannon praised Jacob Rees-Mogg as "one of the best thinkers in the conservative movement on a global basis."

He said: "you're very blast to have a number of great, great thinkers."

The tory backbencher previously told LBC that the Prime Minister should "give up" on her Chequers plan after Boris Johnson and David Davis resigned their positions in the cabinet, but that he was not seeking a leadership challenge to May.

Bannon told Nigel Farage: "It's now time for action.

"Talk is over, it's time for action.

"Whether it's Jacob Rees-Mogg or whether it's Boris Johnson."
