Steve Bannon critiques the performance of the Trump campaign during the New Hampshire primary for not having President Trump declare victory earlier in the evening when initial calls of his victory were being reported. Bannon describes the move as a missed opportunity to "bigfoot” Nikki Haley who delivered a victory speech of her own which the left-wing media, and particularly Fox News, ran with pushing narratives that Haley’s candidacy is in play. Bannon says remarks earlier in the night by President Trump would have forced her to react to his performance. Reflecting on 2020 Bannon highlights similar missed opportunities during election night to assert President Trump’s win. This move ultimately fueled the establishment globalists move to use Haley as a vessel to attempt to take down Trump.
