Donald Trump has hired pugnacious Breitbart chief Steve Bannon as his new campaign CEO. Bannon was instrumental in founding Breitbart London, he’s a former officer in the US navy who loved British writers like James Delingpole and had dreams of a Tea Party-style anti-establishment movement in the UK. He is an admirer of UKIP though he wishes they didn’t keep selling out and were a bit more right-wing. He signed up both Farage as a columnist and Raheem Kassam (later Nigel’s chief aide) as his London editor. Bannon is a no-nonsense, tough operator who says “we call ourselves the Fight Club. You don’t come to us for warm and fuzzy”. Raheem in the White House?
