On 3 Sep 2018, Sarah Ferguson of ABC Australia spoke with Steve Bannon about his plans to take over the world – or at least promote a global populist revolution that supports his goals. In past interviews Bannon has seemed a bit disheveled, defensive, and critical. This has diminished his appeal and made him an easy target of critics. In this interview, he seems well rested, positive, cheerful, and complementary of the interviewer and the political movements opposing him. Note: As of 17 Nov 2018 this page has been updated to include additional videos featuring Steve Bannon.
Some additional examples of more recent Bannon interviews and presentations are below.
