(FiveNation.com)- According to Steve Bannon, one of Donald Trump’s most trusted advisers, the media empire controlled by Rupert Murdoch has “turned on” the former president.
Bannon made these remarks in a Gettr post in response to an article published in Vanity Fair. The Vanity Fair piece highlighted how columnists at several media tycoon’s U.S. newspapers have been urging readers to “dump Trump” and support Republicans who have a better chance of regaining the White House in 2024. Bannon’s comments were made in response to the article.
Bannon said that the deck is stacked against Donald Trump.
Piers Morgan wrote in a Murdoch publication that the “the game’s up for the Donald… It’s time Republicans put their faith in the Ronald.” Morgan was referring to Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida.
In addition, Bannon described how Fox News has been putting Ron DeSantis in the national limelight in preparation for a possible bid for president in 2024.
Bannon wrote in a post on Gettr that “The Murdochs,” Australians via England and not American, have never sacrificed anything for this Country.
He says their entire media. Empire has turned on Trump. Bannon said, referring to outlets such as Fox News, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Post, the Times of London, and The Sun, among others, that they are “all lockstep against Trump.”
Bannon went on to say that Murdoch “has zero ‘feel’ for America or Americans. He says he knows this from first-hand experience.
Even as the House select committee investigating the attack on January 6, 2021, Bannon has maintained that Trump won the 2020 election.
As far back as November 2020, CNN speculated that the Murdochs were turning away from Trump.
“This is another indication that the Murdoch world may be beginning to abandon support for Trump as president,” they reported.
To bolster their claim, they noted that the editorial board of the WSJ wrote that “whoever wins needs the other to capitulate for them to be able to govern.”
The board acknowledged Trump’s right to take legal action if he had evidence of wrongdoing and wrote that “Trump’s legacy will be diminished greatly if his final act is a bitter refusal to accept a legitimate defeat.” The board did acknowledge that Trump has the right to take legal action if he has evidence of wrongdoing. Officials from the Republican party will withdraw their support, and eventually, so will members of the public in the United States who want to see the election ended.
Despite the headwind, like no other politician before him, Trump won the Presidency and may win it again.
