Yesterday I asked if Steve Bannon should come back to the Trump Campaign team. At Spectator USA, Cockburn asked, “Is Bannon Back?” He writes (abridged):
Has the Trump campaign finally grown desperate enough to bring back Steve Bannon?
Bannon, who was credited with righting the sinking ship when he took over the campaign in August 2016, may be just the shot of adrenaline Trump needs.
Quite an ‘assignment’ it would be if Bannon was tasked yet again with steering Trump through the dog days of summer just ahead of the election.
It wouldn’t be the first time the fledgling campaign poached one of its old school allies to try to right the ship.
Jason Miller, another War Room: Pandemic host, rejoined the campaign in early June despite a history of scandal. At this rate, the War Room could very well turn into the nap room.
If the polls are to be believed, the campaign must do something drastic to make up Trump’s double-digit deficit. Bringing back the man who manufactured the upset against Hillary Clinton last time around may be just the cure it needs.
