In this article, NBC’s Hallie Jackson and Kristen Walker expound on what they hope will be the President’s problems in September. They are hoping that Steve Bannon’s return to Breitbart will be a catalyst to raise opposition from within the President’s political base. When you look at what Steve Bannon’s political views, it is hard to see him as causing the President any problems. Wikipedia sums up his political views as:
Bannon’s political views have been described by others as nationalist, right-wing populist, and paleoconservative. He describes himself as an economic nationalist, and a conservative. He rejects allegations that he is a white nationalist, calling white nationalists “losers”, a “fringe element”, and a “collection of clowns”. Trump has previously referred to him as “more of a libertarian than anything else”, although libertarian commentators have disputed this claim.
He has advocated reductions in immigration, and restrictions on free trade, particularly with China and Mexico. He is in favor of raising federal income taxes to 44% for those earning incomes over $5 million a year as a way to pay for middle-class tax cuts. He also supports significantly increasing spending on infrastructure, describing himself as “the guy pushing a trillion-dollar infrastructure plan”
Where does NBC get these ideas? Is it wishful dreaming?

Orrin Hatch, along with White House advisers Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and Gary Cohn — to be revelatory from a policy standpoint……
