Incumbent Senate Republicans under attack as Steve Bannon, former White House chief strategist, declares “open season of war” against the GOP. Bannon’s promised to take out those who don’t toe President Trump’s line, and the threat is being taken seriously. How could the Republican party change? Joshua Green, a journalist with direct access to Bannon, says these personal assaults are effective. Soledad O’Brien sits down with Green to discuss the fight for control of the Republican Party, why Bannon’s message has been resonating and why he says Bannon sees white nationalists as “allies.”

 

Catch Joshua Green’s extended interview for a more in-depth conversation on Bannon’s effect on the Trump presidency and Bannon’s version of nationalism.
